Hurricanes Wordsearch Sheet Keywords KS3 Settler Starter Cover Lesson Geography Weather

Hurricanes Wordsearch Sheet Keywords KS3 Settler Starter Cover Lesson Geography Weather

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Hurricanes'. 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!

Weather chart - UK

Weather chart - UK

I created this chart when curriculum 2014 came into effect to help me cover regularly the weather elements in the Science and Geography section with my KS1 children as well as 'time' within Maths. it is meant to be laminated or covered in sticky-back, clear adhesive so that it can be written on with a whiteboard marker. The months are colour coded to seasons and images are chosen to help the children learn the words and recall what happens over the year. My helpers of the day were responsible for updating the sticky images that were stuck on with sticky backed velcro. The sections with no small words in were written in at the beginning of every month by me. I did need to make three copies of the weather cards in case all three days had the same weather. Sometimes we had a discussion and sometimes the children completed the chart independently in the mornings. In maths, we used it to help organise and learn the days and months. The prediction of weather took a while for them to learn the difference between what they wanted the weather to be like compared to what the weather would probably be like in that season but did improve. It was also helpful to learn that sunny needn't mean warm which is why it has extended sections e.g. weather feeling cards too.
