Rivers - Identifying features of a river system

Rivers - Identifying features of a river system

This resource is aimed at upper KS2 children and is part of a wider Rivers unit. It is a good introduction to the topic as it exposes children to key river concepts and a wide range of related vocabulary. The presentation first recaps the main processes of the water cycle. It then introduces some of the well known features of river systems (e.g. waterfalls and lakes). In the group activity, children are then challenged to match eight features of river systems to photos, satellite images and maps. This activity can easily be differentiated by giving groups different numbers of cards. Finally, the worksheet activity asks children to identify the same features on a simplified drawing of a river system. It is differentiated three ways. LA – Children identify river features and complete fill in the blank definitions. MA – Children identify river features and write their own definitions of four simple features. UA – Children identify river features and write their own definitions of four more complex features. If you like this resource, please review it! I will happily send you a free resource of your choice in return for a review or useful suggestions/feedback. Contact me at eddiebray@yahoo.co.uk.

Winter Write About the Picture {also editable}

Winter Write About the Picture {also editable}

This Winter Write About The Picture has been created for emerging writers, with the goal of enabling students to achieve success with independent writing. Students have been provided with a word bank to help with spelling and encourage ideas for writing. To begin to extend sentences students have also been provided with colour words. They should first colour the picture with the ‘best’ colour, then use the finished coloured picture to enable them to begin to write longer sentences. This is the core of this resource. Teaching Points: • Students will need some prior knowledge of what it means to extend a sentence and the role that adjectives can play in this • Students should be encouraged to use as many colours as possible to colour their pictures I have added some extras to give students and teachers an element of choice- Differentiation: • Alternative handwriting lines • A second bordered page for students who wish to write at length • The photo section provides more difficult vocabulary and could lead more able writers towards a 'what happened next' story writing style, should the teacher wish to lead them in this direction • An editable version of all content has been provided for the teacher to make vocabulary choices. Just type your chosen words in each box! This resource will work equally well as a ‘grab and go’ resource or as a small group activity where students are encouraged to verbalise their sentences first. ********************************************************** CONTENT • Cover/Teacher Notes/Contents SECTION 1 • Color the Pictures • Guided Handwriting Lines • Extra Writing Template SECTION 2 • Photo Images • Guided Handwriting Lines • Extra Writing Template SECTION 3 • Color the Pictures • Alternative Handwriting Lines • Extra Writing Template SECTION 4 • Photo Images • Alternative Handwriting Lines • Extra Writing Template SECTION 5 Editable PDF: as above, but teacher can add own vocabulary {fillable boxes} • TOU/Credits PAGE COUNT: 173 ********************************************************** Teacher's Toolkit Writing

Hurricanes Wordsearch Sheet Keywords KS3 Settler Starter Cover Lesson Geography Weather

Hurricanes Wordsearch Sheet Keywords KS3 Settler Starter Cover Lesson Geography Weather

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Hurricanes'. 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!
