Formula One Wordsearch Motorsport PE Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Formula One Wordsearch Motorsport PE Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Formula One'. 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!

Divided into the original 34 chapters and displayed in a slightly old-fashioned style, it is easily printed and bound in a duotang or binder. In addition to the original text, after each chapter you will find: Questions that focus on the reader’s experience and perceptions, and are under the title ‘Ask Yourself’. These may be used to stimulate discussion or for a written assignment of your choice. Twelve words, typed in a suitably nautical style, which can be used as a spelling test (oral or written) or as an opportunity to expand the reader’s vocabulary. (Definitions are not included. Outdated terms are generally not selected.) A notebook page, imitating a diary page which Jim could have had in the time period, on which the reader should summarize (in their best penmanship and style) the chapter just read. Two pages of extra questions and activity suggestions are found at the end of the book. No pirate tale can compare with this one. Prepare yourself for subtle treachery, rough adventure, vivid characters and first class writing! Bonus! This title includes a separate file of additional Treasure-Island-themed notebooking pages.
