Around the World/Cultural Activity-Ghana Music

Around the World/Cultural Activity-Ghana Music

Hands down my students’ favorite lessons that we do in my classroom are the “Magic Airplane Ride” lessons. We get in our airplane, fasten our seatbelts, and then take off and visit other countries while learning about the music, art, customs, food, and culture of each country. The students look out for red and yellow stars, which take you to locations in Google Earth or to videos. This is a great resource for multicultural and “Trip Around the World” lessons. These lessons are popular with all my students-kindergarten through 5th grade. This lesson is a trip to Ghana. Each lesson includes links that take you to locations in Google Earth so the kids can see the places. Once you land, click and drag on the screen to drive down the street and see the city. Sometimes the airplane can even go inside buildings! There are also video links throughout the lesson to make the topics covered come to life by letting the kids see and hear what they are learning about. Each video will open in a ViewPure window so there will not be any advertisements at the beginning of the video. Covered in this presentation: • The location of Ghana, and the capital city • The president and president’s house • The flag of Ghana and the coat of arms with its meaning. • Languages • Noted sites in Ghana with Google Earth links. • Clothing, including kente cloth, its history and how it’s made • Ghanaian foods • Music and dance • Obwisana-Children’s song game with links to learn the song and the game • Tue Tue-Children’s song with links to learn the song and the dance.

Orienteering lesson

Orienteering lesson

This recourse pack was put together for a group of none specialist teachers to deliver as an introduction to orienteering in Margam Park, South Wales. The slides have descriptions and images and the worksheet is based on an orienteering trail in Swansea called Clyne woods and requires pupils to activate their prior knowledge of map reading skills from their geography lessons. The lesson was used for the whole of year 9 and was differentiated up and down to suit the needs of the class by the teacher delivering the information. This presentation does not include how to read a compass and there are some measurements involved which may need adjusting to suit the class, but can also offer an opportunity to include a numeracy focus too.

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

Journey to Refuge : scheme of work

Journey to Refuge : scheme of work

A set of 12 lessons covering geography, maths and writing objectives, based around refugees. After identifying different countries and geographical features, children plan a refugee’s journey from Syria to the UK, and then ‘go’ on those journeys, using tablets and maps to help them.

Later on, children look at a real refugee’s diary entry, identify the features and then write their own diary entry based on their experiences. Finally, children look at statistics about refugees and have an additional session on how to use the eight point of a compass. Folder includes lesson plan resources for each lesson, differentiated sheets where required, and a powerpoint with slides for al 12 sessions. Originally planned for year 5 children, but would be great for UKS2/KS3 in general.

'Determined Dreamer' Classroom activity & Poster Bundle

**Encourage, affirm and build confidence, teamwork and positive attitude with these stunning posters. Includes 3 posters in one, plus bonus image & teachers notes. For use as a classroom, small focus group, home schooling and as a family. ** 1 - ‘Dream/Goal Poster’ A dream or a goal is only worth pursuing if it’s so big it stretches us; causes us to become bigger so we can reach high enough to achieve it. What is the goal/dream that your’e aiming for as a class? Write it on this poster so you can see what it is that you are moving towards, so you don’t forget. 2 - ‘Attitude Rucksack Poster’ - When going on a journey towards our dreams, just like Ernie, it’s important to pack a bag with all the things we need for our journey. But what about our attitude? What attitude do we need to reach our dreams and goals in life and in the classroom? Together think about what words you would need in order to have the right attitude to be a determined dreamer, and then choose the most important ones to put in the class ‘Attitude Rucksack’. Use the poster image to write up the words to be reminded of them everyday. 3 - ‘Determined Dreamer Poster’ - On the journey towards our dreams it’s important to know that there will likely be challenges along the way, bumps in the road, things that will make us want to give up, will cause us to think we cant do it and to question/doubt why we even decided to do it in the first place. Decide together as a class your ‘Determined Dreamer Phrase’; the phrase you can say to yourself and to each other when it just get so tough that you want to give it all up. Use a classroom activity and display on walls, or can be used in PHSE lessons. Posters are based on the book; ‘Ernie Gonzales: The Determined Dreamer’, and the main theme of the book, which is available on Amazon or Etsy, however these resources are not dependent on the book.

Beautiful colouring/sheet sheet and text from the book to encourage to children to think about what their dreams maybe. Extract from the book reads; ‘Dreams are precious things.

Some codes require critical thinking to determine what a letter/symbol stands for. Each code will reveal a fact about U.S. History. For example, students will learn the number of amendments and articles in the Constitution, analyze excerpts from the Declaration of Independence, gain an overview of the amendments in the Bill of Rights or learn about the Boston Tea Party.

A set of labeled and non-labeled decoders are included with each escape room. An answer key and teacher directions are provided for each escape room.

THE TONLE SAP LAKE AND RIVER OF CAMBODIA -AN INLAND WATER STUDY

THE TONLE SAP LAKE AND RIVER OF CAMBODIA -AN INLAND WATER STUDY

Potentially this unit has multiple uses across age ranges from primary to secondary levels in geography and environmental studies. The lake and connecting river have rather unique hydrology in significant variations in water level and reverses flows of the Tonle Sap River linking the lake with the Mekong River. One suggested approach is to use this as an information gathering tutorial so that students can fill-in the worksheet (at the end of the unit) as the pages are screened. This unit supports the Australian geography curriculum at senior levels - Unit 1 - Natural and ecological hazards (flooding); Unit 2 - Sustainable places - Year 6 - Asia - geographical diversity; Year 10 Asia - Inland water study. The very large Tonle Sap Lake is the largest freshwater lake in SE Asia and supports about 2 million people around its perimeter. It also has historical significance because the presence of this lake and the in-flowing Siem Reap River had relevance for the locating of the large sandstone cities within the Angkor region during the development of the Khmer Empire. Join the trip along the Tonle Sap River. Cross the Tonle Sap Lake and gain some understanding of the importance of this inland water system for the people of Cambodia. The attached worksheets in general and pdf form are essential additions if you choose to treat this resource material as a tutorial.

Maybe it’s before a big state test or maybe it’s after they have worked so hard and achieved the results you were hoping for. Maybe it’s just the right activity to do with them to encourage their journeys. I do one per quarter and they love them! The Growth Mindset Escape Rooms have students walking around the classroom breaking codes. Students are given a secret code name and sent on secret missions. The codes include ciphers, Morse code, cryptograms and a final 4 digit combination based on the decoders/clues. Each clue and code is different. The codes require students to think differently to decipher or decode them. Some codes are easier than others. Some codes require critical thinking to determine what a letter/symbol stands for. Each code will reveal an inspirational quote from a famous figure about growth mindset. The use of secret code will keep your students engaged while competing to find the final 4 digit combination. No props needed!! Students can report the final combination to you. If you wanted to, you could purchase a 4 digit lock that you program, but it is not necessary at all! The best age range for this resource is 8+. Please look at the preview to determine if this resource works for your age group. Younger students may need some help with some of the more difficult codes. You can use the pre-labeled clues or you can challenge older kids to choose/find the decoder that works for each of the clues. A set of labeled and non-labeled decoders are included. An answer key and teacher directions are provided. Time needed: 30-60 minutes/escape room Each Growth Mindset Escape Room has a different mission, different code name and different decoders.
