Archimedes - A sample chapter from 'Standing on the Shoulders of Giants'

Archimedes - A sample chapter from 'Standing on the Shoulders of Giants'

This is a sample chapter from the forthcoming book, ‘Standing on the Shoulders of Giants’ by Tom Burkard and Colin McKenzie. It is aimed at higher ability 11-16 Physics students and has been found to be an excellent resource for revision, homework or ‘flipped learning’. Further chapters are also being made available for review and evaluation. This chapter tells the story of Archimedes and details his work on: Density - including his ‘Eureka!’ moment Turning Moments and Levers Pulleys Each chapter gives a brief biography of a great physicist and is linked to an explanation of their discoveries that is relevant to the school curriculum. Here, students learn how to calculate density and turning moments, and to explain the workings of levers and pulleys. Original sketches are included to illustrate the chapter and we welcome feedback from teachers and students before publication of the book. I have used this chapter for revision, homework and as a ‘flipped learning’ activity, where students are encouraged to independently learn the basics of a topic before it is taught in class. Our chapters are also very effective for use in ‘quiet reading’ sessions. The literacy level here is ‘middle to high’ and we have found this content to be very engaging as extension work for higher ability students.

Latin Quotes with English translations, including full grammatical explanations and background info

This set includes twelve Latin quotes, by both famous and lesser known authors, with their English translations, to use as display posters in the classroom, for example when teaching a unit on Romans or Ancient History or in any Latin class. After each poster quote I have included some information for the teacher to introduce the new quote to the classs, including a full grammatical Latin explanation of the quote, background information on the author and time, and a section on the meaning and interpretation of this specific quote so students know how and when they could use it in daily life. I use posters like these every week all school year long in my classes, and students collected them in their books and looked forward to the new quote each week. They starting using the most popular quotes in their conversations with each other, and often told me after a test when asked how it went, “oh, veni, vidi, vici!”

Jury Duty worksheets

Jury Duty worksheets

I created these worksheets to support my lessons on Ancient Greece and how they influenced modern day democracy but these sheets could be used as stand alone lessons. Included: Sheet with information on the alleged crime and those involved. There has been an alleged robbery at a man’s house. He has accused his neighbour of committing the crime. The accused’s alibi is his best friend , Sid, who has been to prison before. Who will you believe? Jurors: Three jurors all of who know one of the people involved. This sheet will help the children to understand the need for an unbiased jury. Children will discuss the jurors and decide whether or not to keep them on the jury Questionnaire: I used this with a colleague who had experienced jury duty. They came into our lesson and the children used the questions on this sheet to interview them on their experience. Statements: Brief statements from the three people involved. Children can use these to help form their opinions on the accused. Verdict/Truth: Most children I have used this lesson with come to the conclusion that Mark (the accused) is guilty. They are always surprised to know that he was set up by the man who accused him. The children find out that even if Mark was guilty, he would more than likely have walked free due to lack of evidence. This always ignites interesting conversations about how fair our legal system is.

Ancient Greece Class Assembly

Ancient Greece Class Assembly

This play script was written for a year 6 class. There are some concepts and words that make it appropriate for older grades as well. Some amendments might be necessary to use for younger years (in which case you may want to purchase the copy of this script that is fully editable in our shop). There are phonetic spellings included beside certain words to help with pronunciation. The script is written with 25 speaking parts however these can easily be shared to make more parts (although there are plenty of non-speaking actions needed on stage). Lines can also be easily merged together to cater to smaller groups. Currently there are 8 narrator parts, 12 Greek gods and 5 villagers. It should take between 15-25 minutes to perform. The first scene of the play reviews some basic geographical facts and examines ancient maps versus today's. Things we have gained from ancient Greek culture such as democracy and philosophy are touched on as well. The second scene is a series of tableaus (students form a still image with their bodies, as if creating a snapshot or picture of an event) that help demonstrate just how long ago 'ancient Greece' was, by showing significant events in history. The third scene introduces the 12 main gods who lived on Mount Olympus. Students have the opportunity to present any class work that represents the gods. A shield designed to represent each one or a poster that highlights each gods power or realm. The final scene is the only 'acting out' scene and it is a retelling of the myth about how Athens became Athena's city. **Please note this is a PDF file, so cannot be edited. It is double spaced so that character roles can be written in by hand or amendments can be made on paper. We also offer a fully editable version in a word document. Please visit our shop to find it!** Hope your class enjoys it as much as mine did!
