Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! An Assembly about Plastic Pollution.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! An Assembly about Plastic Pollution.

This is an assembly I wrote for my year 4 class production that got good reviews from the critics (parents, teachers and children!) who watched it. It could be adapted in any way you want, including for any year group in Key Stage 2 or Key Stage 3. The pack contains the following: - a Microsoft Word script (with space on the left to write children's names) and a PDF version; - a PowerPoint which has all the pictures and videos in the correct order; - and the original video files themselves (because you'll need them to link to the PowerPoint if you want it to play automatically - I couldn't find a way to do it because I converted it from a Google Slides document). Reduce, reuse, recycle!

No Simple Solution to Livestock and Climate Change - Article Guide

No Simple Solution to Livestock and Climate Change - Article Guide

"Simply reducing livestock farming in developing countries will neither cut emissions nor benefit the poor, says livestock expert Carlos Seré." This article (included with this resource as a PDF) discusses the issue of climate change and animal agriculture from a non-vegan point of view. The author attempts to bring up points about agriculture and its impact on developing nations as a more complex issue. Thus, requiring a "Third Way" aside from factory farming or simple meat elimination as solutions to this global problem. The reading guide is in PDF, Word and a fillable Word form. This way you can print the handout for students to write on or share it for them to easily fill out on their devices as a Word form. Afterwards you can reflect on the article as a class or consider writing and researching what a "third way" could look like. Should take about 25-30 minutes This article pairs well with the following other resources of mine: 1. COWSPIRACY - The Sustainability Secret 2. Regenerative Agriculture -- A Solution to Climate Change 3. The Impact of Global Meat Production- Article and Worksheet 4. Meat and the Environment - Article and Reading Guide Thanks for looking!

You may be kind, helpful and respectful to everyone you encounter, but still, your actions will harm others.

Ethics presentation lessons - 21 ethic questions with sources for and against

Ethics presentation lessons - 21 ethic questions with sources for and against

This is a comprehensive set of lesson resources that I have created for form lesson time. The lessons begin with the PowerPoint that introduces a brief history of ethics (religion, Socrates, Kant) then gets students to consider what we mean by the term 'ethics'. A definition is provided. The teacher then goes through how the presentations will be structured and tips for giving a good quality presentation. Students then select which one of the 21 questions they would like to investigate using the sources that have been carefully provided. Many of these sources I have come across (e.g. the Sports Gene, James Mitchell). Others I have had to research. Websites links are provided. Students then plan their presentations and present for 3 to 5 minutes. There is a checklist that can be used to provide feedback. The pictures used are not under copyright protection.

Crown Jewels Wordsearch UK Kings and Queens Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Crown Jewels Wordsearch UK Kings and Queens Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'The Crown Jewels'. 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!
