Asian Cities Wordsearch Geography Countries Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Asian Cities Wordsearch Geography Countries Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Asian Cities'. 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!

National Day of the People's Republic of China - PowerPoint + 31 Ways To Use This Resource In Class

You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different materials being shown in each of the photos. I have added a second PowerPoint presentation which shows you how you could use this teaching resource in 31 different, fun ways in the classroom to make sure you get the most out of this teaching resource. I also create a Chinese Landscape Painting book for students. The basics are laid out to help them and then they can use water colours to complete the picture. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching display about China. The students could also take the laminated photos and sort them into different Chinese activities. The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.
