Carpentry Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Design Woodwork

Carpentry Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Design Woodwork

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of 'Carpentry'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Drain the Brain: Brain Empowering Activities

Drain the Brain: Brain Empowering Activities

"The frontier of our minds is the last place we find, but maybe the first place we should go." (-The Right Side of My Mind by Queensryche) Research has demonstrated that the human brain does much better in the long term if it is exposed to activities such as brain teasers and logic puzzles. In fact, research has shown some of the benefits regarding such activities: • Boosts brain activity • Provides emotional satisfaction and sense of accomplishment • Enhances memory and processing speed • Helps slow the decline and reduce the risk for dementia • Improves concentration The human brain is no different than any other muscle in the human body. If an individual wants developed bicep muscles, they need to do arm curls with weights (i.e. an arm workout). Henceforth, if one wants to develop and maintain a healthy brain, it too must be allowed to exercise, which is the foundation of this guide. These activities are inspired from the phenomenal video game, The Talos Principle, by Croteam. They were kind enough to email me and give me permission to pursue this project. Another facet that works so well with this guide is that it "quietly" nudges a student's thinking process towards the STEM fields. In particular, with these activities, students must analyze, reason, solve, and interpret solutions to the puzzles they encounter. The process I follow in my classroom for these activities is as follows → -Complete one puzzle and it correlating analysis activities (i.e. Challenge 1) per day. -**Since I utilize these as mini-lessons, it equates to about 15 - 20 minutes daily. -Review Step 1 -Try to solve the puzzle (see #2) on the provided template. -Complete Step 2 -Complete Step 3 -Complete the evidence-based paragraph template **Encourage the students to sketch ideas, lines, arrows on their puzzle template. I even encourage them to make notes, as well. -Show the students the solution in the embedded video clips (on my YouTube channel). -Have the students fill in whether they were correct or not. **After completing all puzzles, the students should fill in their “Analytical Questions” page (at the end of all the puzzles.) In the end, the key, as an educator, is to be willing to go out of one’s comfort zone and be ready to try something new and innovative. If the results mirror my own classroom, you may be surprised at what your students are able to do! Total Pages: 60
