Time Travel! An Inquiry Based Maths Adventure

Time Travel! An Inquiry Based Maths Adventure

Get ready to take a journey of adventure around the world and across time with this inquiry based math project. It offers collaborative learning and hands on inquiry requiring the children to solve problems, think critically and apply their knowledge of elapsed time, measure and scale, area, place value and fractions as they select their countries to visit and travel back in time exploring historical moments around the world. Text is included with data that the children will have to identify in order to solve the problems. Research will be necessary as the children have to know the location of their countries, capital cities as well as facts and figures with each historical marker or event. Math becomes authentic! UK & USA spelling included. But, before they even set off on their adventure, they have to design their own time travel machine! This was designed to be a mixture of collaborative group work and independent work but of course you can opt to do either or all. I prefer to have the children work on the pages individually before they compare their designs and work together as a small group to collaboratively create the map, their group plan of the time machine and planning their presentation. It usually takes me about 2 weeks to complete the entire project. It culminates in a class presentation of the facts found and reasoning as to their plan, design of their team’s route, their discoveries and their designed machine. Comparing and contrasting each group’s work helps with critical thinking too and communication skills. Wholly differentiated, ( Task B cards are less challenging) you can use it as a summative assessment tool of the skills and standards included. It can be created as a work booklet or in a binder, with a front cover included, being used as a goal setting pre assessment for the children. Mix and match the pages to suit your students’ needs. This inquiry based math packet is easy to print and go. I designed it for my IB PYP 5th grade class. It can be used 4th – 6th grade too. You will find the following skills and standards ideally suited for the IB PYP Phase 4 and CCSS Math for 4th and 5th grade: Place value Fractions: equivalent fractions/simplifying Measure: using measuring tools, elapsed time, area and scale Ratio tables Geometry: identifying polygons and angles And more. Make math fun, engaging an authentic! You can find many more inquiry based learning tools in my store and on my blog. Enjoy! Susan Powers

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!

Victorian class assembly **Fully Editable**

This script was written for a year 4 class, but could easily be adapted for other year groups. It covers topics from our term including healthy eating and balanced diets; inner forces and temptation; Victorian inventions, schools and life for rich vs poor. It is titled Oliver and Olivia and is based on Oliver Twist. It begins in the orphanage's food hall (discuss healthy eating). The 'twins' then leave for London and meet the pickpockets (discuss temptation of stealing). Then they meet a friendly lady who takes them in (discuss school and life of rich vs poor). There are currently 17 speaking roles but this number can be increased by sharing lines (for example there are 4 pickpockets who each have 4 or 5 lines, but you could increase the pickpockets and decrease the number of lines). We used 2 songs in this play as well - Food Train and Pick a Pocket or Two. They are not included, but can easily be found online or changed/removed all together.

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!
