Animal Classification Colouring/ Activity Sheets

Animal Classification Colouring/ Activity Sheets

This download includes 6 detailed and realistic colouring sheets, drawn by TheArtTA, 1 for each of the areas of animal classification used in primary science, birds, mammals, amphibians, invertebrates, reptiles and fish.There is also a teachers sheet listing the animals featured and possible uses for these sheets within a lesson. For example the range of animals can be a discussion starter, ( Why is a Dolphin on the mammals sheet?), or the pictures can be enlarged to make posters to decorate the classroom and pupils can research the animals featured. More than just a colouring sheet and great for engaging pupils in this topic.

Animal Jeopardy

Animal Jeopardy

Animal Jeopardy is a great way for your class to review your concepts and ideas about animals. The categories covered in this game are mammals, reptiles, amphibians,birds, fish, adaptations, food chains, and animal vocabulary. I typically put the class into small groups or individuals and ask a member of the group to choose a color and dollar amount. That is the question that they have to answer. When I get the class to do it individually I get them to put the answers down on a piece of paper and mark them at the end of the game. NEW! I have now introduced a visual point scoring system to keep track of how much money the teams have earned. Simply click on the allocated game board and with each click the amount increases by $100 I run it on an interactive whiteboard but would be equally successful on a projector, computer or TV screen. Alternatively it could be run for an individual student on their own device.

End of Year 6 Booklet

End of Year 6 Booklet

Here is a Year 6 homework booklet which covers maths, English, science and thinking skills. I have attached a booklet with all the answers as well. It is suitable for Year 6 just before their SATs but you can use it for a high ability Year 5 class. You can print off the booklet for each student but I prefer to project it on the board because this saves paper. This is perfect for an end of year activity for Year 6 children as it covers topics from across the curriculum. I have used Sassoon Primary as the font but if you’re computer doesn’t accept this font, I have uploaded a PDF version of the workbook. Sorry about the page numbers, I have no idea what happened on Microsoft Word.

Evolution Assembly or Class Play

Evolution Assembly or Class Play

Evolution Assembly or Class Play Cast of 30 (easily adjustable) Duration: Around 20 minutes without the inclusion of music suggestions. This script has ‘serious factual content’ including a timeline from the beginning of time to the present, but it has plenty of humour including a seriously bad set of jokes at the end! This assembly or class play is based on the Evolution and Inheritance unit of study and has the following coverage: How fossils record changes that living things undergo over millions of years Shared characteristics of parents and offspring Adaptation and evolution of animals and plants in order to survive in different habitats/how characteristics are acquired rather than inherited/natural selection How creatures change over long periods of time Sample Text: (Enter Giant Tortoise slowly) Narrator: (Sarcastically) In your own time! Giant Tortoise: Hey! No need to rush! And it’s not like I have any predators to run from. Narrator: Just as well! Have you had far to come? Giant Tortoise: I live on the Galapagos islands, off the South American coast. Narrator: Whoa! That’s a long way! Giant Tortoise: Not as far as Mr Darwin travelled on his five-year trip! Narrator: So, you met the great man? (Enter Finch) Finch: We certainly did! Took some of us home with him! (Enter Darwin) Darwin: (To Giant Tortoise and Finch) You got me thinking about (To Giant Tortoise) Different patterned shells (To Finch) Different shaped beaks. You see, these creatures were different on each island suggesting they had adapted to their immediate environment. Giant Tortoise & Finch: (Together) Fascinating! (Exit Giant Tortoise & Finch) Narrator: Shall we look at some other examples? Darwin: (Enthusiastically) Certainly! Music 3 Parade of the Charioteers (Enter Stag and Peacock, both strutting proudly across stage) Stag: Look at my fine antlers! (Looks at audience) Anyone want to take me on? Peacock: Huh! No need for any violence! Just look at my magnificent display (opens tail to full effect). Who could not be impressed with me? Narrator: (Thoughtfully) Hmm. They are rather winning features Stag: It’s called ‘survival of the fittest’! Peacock: You’ve gotta have what it takes you know!

The Cookie Jar Forensic Science Mystery-The Crime Scenario

The Cookie Jar Forensic Science Mystery-The Crime Scenario

Welcome to The Cookie Jar Mystery An exciting adventure in the world of forensic science! The Cookie Jar Mystery is a fun, forensic science mini-course consisting of six separate modules designed to engage middle school students. In Mrs. Johnson’s classroom, a curious crime has taken place: her favorite cookie jar has been broken and not surprisingly, some of her delicious, homemade cookies have been eaten! As a scientist and teacher, Mrs. Johnson realizes that this unfortunate incident provides a “teachable moment”—an opportunity to teach students how to use the tools of forensic science, understand the crime, and find the guilty party! In The Cookie Jar Mystery, instructors and students participate in the investigation, aided by the clues and developments in the case revealed in the ongoing story of Mrs. Johnson’s classroom. Although every module moves students closer to a final conclusion and the guilty suspect, each module is fully self-contained, providing a complete science module/lab, all of the activities and assessments to support student understanding, and an engaging chapter in the story of the crime. Module Structure in Five Easy Steps: Teaching Forensic Science Overview: Easy classroom set-up, list of materials to acquire, background information for the teacher, and learning objectives. More to the Story: Engaging Students:A stand-alone, read-aloud “chapter” in the ongoing story of the middle-school crime: the breaking of Mrs. Johnson’s cookie jar, the theft of cookies, and the pursuit of justice. Hands-On Activities: Experiments that range from developing observation skills to fingerprint detection, understanding DNA and much, much more! Data Collection and Analysis: Students develop a working theory of the crime by recording their experimental data on handy,activity-related “case notes”, then discussing their findings with their fellow classroom “detectives.” Assessment, Standards, and Extensions: Strategies on how to assess student understanding, procedures and content of each learning activity are included. A standards correlation sheet clearly demonstrates how The Cookie Jar Mystery’s activities meet national standards in Science and ELA. Module extensions, resources, and additional reading are recommended in each module. Each module contains a glossary of terms introduced. To kick off the series in Module 1: The Crime Scenario, students are introduced to the classroom caper through discovery of clues at the re-created crime scene. Students learn about the steps of the investigation, observation, and the identities of the four suspects in question. Each lesson comes with a complete supply list and all the handouts for each activity. Many of the supplies needed are found in most classrooms, other can be found at science suppliers and your local grocery store.

What killed the Mammoths (editable)

What killed the Mammoths (editable)

This is a collection of resources that would work well as a lesson. A lesson outline is provided showing how the resources might be used together. There is an email designed to set the scene and for use as as a ‘hook’. There are also sheets for learners to summarise their learning (tweet). You may want to supplement the resources with pictures of a woolly mammoth (link only due to copyright restrctions) and video ‘footage’ e.g from Ice Age movie. This was designed as lesson for a KS3 nurture group although would be suitable for KS2 or other KS3 groups with adaptation. Please note that this is an editable version. A free, non-editable version is also available.

Survival with Sweets

Survival with Sweets

This activity is aimed at supporting Primary Science (particularly those in year 6 in the English National Curriculum). The purpose of the activity is to help children understand the idea of ‘survival of the fittest’ using everyday objects that a primary teacher will be able to get hold of, including sweets. This can be played as a game by children or can also be used by a small group to demonstrate to a whole class.
