Samuel L Jackson Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Drama Actor

Samuel L Jackson Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Drama Actor

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘Samuel L Jackson’. 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!

Learning About Living Things: Frog in a Pond Game

Learning About Living Things: Frog in a Pond Game

This lesson is based on the game 'Red Light, Green Light’, with a twist. The player nominated as ‘it’ is a frog and the rest of the class are insects, trying to cross the pond without being eaten. Students will understand that living things live in different places where their needs are met, will be able to articulate how the game illustrates the relationship between a frog and insects and learn to follow the rules of a simple game.

Murder at Markham Manor- drama starter for mystery fiction

Murder at Markham Manor- drama starter for mystery fiction

This is a short ‘Whodunit?’ play I created. I used it with a Year 7 class but it would be suitable for any KS3 year group. There are 11 parts in the play, I have included an instructions sheet which explains how the play works. I used this as a starter activity to introduce mystery writing and building of suspense. Enjoy!

Endangered animals and conservation issues

Endangered animals and conservation issues

I have bundled together ten resources which focus on endangered animals and conservation issues . Polar bears, sea turtles and albatrosses all face particular problems in our seas and oceans. These resources take a look at these creatures and how they are adapted to their natural environment and what steps we must take in order for them to survive in greater numbers. The problem of plastic waste is a recurring theme in several of these resources. This bundle includes quizzes, comprehensions , poetry and puzzles which will engage pupils and inspire them to do their own independent research. Suitable for ages 7 and upwards.
