Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! An Assembly about Plastic Pollution.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! An Assembly about Plastic Pollution.

This is an assembly I wrote for my year 4 class production that got good reviews from the critics (parents, teachers and children!) who watched it. It could be adapted in any way you want, including for any year group in Key Stage 2 or Key Stage 3. The pack contains the following: - a Microsoft Word script (with space on the left to write children's names) and a PDF version; - a PowerPoint which has all the pictures and videos in the correct order; - and the original video files themselves (because you'll need them to link to the PowerPoint if you want it to play automatically - I couldn't find a way to do it because I converted it from a Google Slides document). Reduce, reuse, recycle!

FRANCINE THE BURROWING FROG OF THE HOT DESERT - ANIMAL ODDITY PART 1

FRANCINE THE BURROWING FROG OF THE HOT DESERT - ANIMAL ODDITY PART 1

Students are usually interested in the unusual, the different or the odd. Here's an example of 3 -probably 4 - animals of the desert who in terms of their basic biology don't seem to be suited to the hot desert environment. This first unit about a burrowing frog shows how this variety of frog - a water-loving animal can sustain itself in basically a water-deficient environment. This can be used as a standalone unit in Primary or lower Secondary classes. For some Primary students the vocabulary and concepts may be a little difficult. If that's the case you can just screen the material and discuss Francine's story. At a more detailed level this unit is about adaptation and species sustainability. You may wish to include it in your destination studies; arid lands studies or location studies or you may just be looking for something ready made for your students. The debate at the end is designed to check student level of understanding. The attachments are included so that you can provide copies - either in black and white or colour. Find out how Francine copes in two environments - the underground micro-environment and the above ground macro-environment. This is part 1 of the series on animal oddities.

World Currencies Wordsearch Finance Money Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

World Currencies Wordsearch Finance Money Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'World Currencies'. 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!
