What Does an Engineer Do?

What Does an Engineer Do?

Instead of the age old joke, How many ( ) does it take to screw in a light bulb, ask your students, "How many engineers does it take to make your favorite toy?" Their answers will surprise you! This PowerPoint program shows your students that at least five, and probably more, engineers were involved in the making of a toy truck. The last slide offers students the opportunity to think about all the engineers who were involved in making their own favorite toy!

Facebook 'like' thumbs up

A page of facebook thumbs up 'like' buttons that can be printed and laminated. I use these during self and peer assessment both individual and group. Students are able to 'like' a piece of work, which initiates discussion.

Christmas zombie invasion ! Great fun Christmas activities for your class as they try to save Xmas.

Christmas zombie invasion ! Great fun Christmas activities for your class as they try to save Xmas.

This is a very entertaining, complete and ready to use, Christmas lesson full of fun activities. It also includes a fully scaffolded activity where students build and fire simple catapults made from lolly (popsicle) sticks. This is done in the classroom (no need to go outside). You do NOT need to know how to build the catapult, the lesson carefully guides students so they can do it with or without your help ! A story about an invasion of zombie Santas is told. Christmas is in jeopardy! The learners have to try to defeat the zombie horde, find a cure for the infected and save Christmas. All instructions are included and the lesson teaches the learners almost automatically, any of us can give this fun and imaginative lesson. How can we stop the zombie horde? How do we cure the zombies turning them back into people? Can your class save Christmas? The length of the lesson is very flexible depending on your needs. There are activities you can miss out and there is also a Christmas cracker based extension you can add in. So, the lesson can easily last anywhere between 0.5 hours and 1.5 hours depending on your requirements. This lesson gets the learners out of their seats, keeps them happy, focused and engaged as they work in teams building and creating. There’s nothing like zombies to capture the imagination of students! It's a great lesson that teachers of any subject can use with all ages from 6 to 16 and it won't go out of date (like a quiz might) so you can use it for years to come, which makes it excellent value at this price ! As well as being great fun and entertaining it is also educational and includes: literacy, numeracy, SMSC, team working skills, questions with answers, physical coordination skills, activities with answers, play ball game, joke telling etc High quality, ready to use lesson - great for teachers of all subjects!

Christmas: activities. Based on saving Christmas from Santa's evil brother! Fun Xmas activity.

Great fun Christmas activities, complete and ready to use. Lots of engaging and fun activities and a primary activity of building and firing straw air powered rockets in the classroom (no need to go outside). Please don't stop reading! This is not a lesson only for science teachers... A story is woven and as part of the lesson the learners build rockets to save Christmas from Safcut - who is Santa's evil brother. All instructions are included and the lesson teaches the learners almost automatically, this is NOT a lesson only for our friends the science teachers (although it's excellent for them too!) - any of us can use this fun and imaginative lesson. Who is Safcut? What's his plan? Can your class save Christmas? The length of the lesson is very flexible, there are activities you can miss out and on the other hand there is a Christmas cracker based extension. So, the lesson can easily last anywhere between 1/2 hour and 1 and a 1/2 hours depending on your needs. This is definitely not a Christmas quiz, it gets the learners out of their seats, keeps them focused and engaged as they work in teams building and creating. It's a great lesson you can use with all ages from 6 to 16 and it won't go out of date so you can use it for years to come, which makes it excellent value at this price ! As well as being great fun and entertaining it is also educational and it includes: literacy, SMSC, team working skills, cooperation, physical building skills, questions with answers, activities with answers, play ball game, what engineers do, identify parts of a rocket, joke telling etc High quality lesson, great for Science teachers, and all other teachers too!
