KS2 Geography  "Extreme Earth" Assembly!

KS2 Geography "Extreme Earth" Assembly!

A complete Geography assembly on the topic of Extreme Earth (volcanoes, tornadoes, tsunamis, etc) in a "Britain's Got Talent" format! The resource includes two scripts (one to include judges and one without), links to songs, lyrics to songs and much more! This assembly had the children and the staff at my school laughing a lot! The assembly aims to promote a range of work done in class including persuasive writing in English, landscape paintings in Art, gymnastics in P.E. and a musical performance! The children also learned the skill of a good pun (or bad puns in this case!).

Paragraphs activity sorting information about different storms.

Paragraphs activity sorting information about different storms.

Worksheet where children read information about different types of storms including thunderstorms, hurricanes and tornadoes. They will decide what subheading each paragraph should have (to suit an explanation text) and then colour code the statements. The children also have to decide which pieces if information would be suited to an introduction. This can lead to children writing their own explanation text about storms.

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!
