Summer Photos + Creative Writing Visual Story Prompts + 31 Fun Teaching Activities For The Classroom

You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different locations being shown in each of the photos. I have combined a summer photos presentation, with a set of creative writing prompts and 31 fun teaching activities linked to these photo flashcards to try in the classroom. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching set of story prompts. The students could also take five of the laminated photos and create them into a story . The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.

What's The Weather Bundle Integrated Unit

What's The Weather Bundle Integrated Unit

SAVE 20% BY PURCHASING THE BUNDLE! 'What's The Weather?' bundle is an completely integrated unit for teaching the topic of weather. My aim was to make this unit as wide-ranging as possible to suit varied ability levels. The pack content should give teachers enough element of choice to suit students' needs. Children are often scared of thunderstorms, but they love jumping in puddles of water and looking at rainbows after a storm ends. Making observations about the weather and discussing climate are great ways to teach children about science, especially since weather is something children can easily relate to and understand. Whether it's clear and sunny or rainy and windy outside, weather and climate affect children's lives every day. It dictates our wardrobe, sometimes affects our moods. It can bring us together as a community. If students have an early curiosity in weather, not only could it help them in their Maths and Science studies in school, it may even inspire the next generation of forecasters or meteorologists! ******************************************** FILE 1: CONTENT • Cover • Weather and Climate Presentation • Weather Vocabulary Display • Weather Instruments Posters • TOU/Credits ******************************************** FILE 2: CONTENT • Cover/Contents • Thinking Maps • Weather Discussion Cards • Weather Phenomenon Research • Weather Recording Sheets • Weather Experiments & Reports • Weather Forecasting • TOU/Credits ******************************************** FILE 3: CONTENT The following activities use key weather vocabulary. • Cover/Contents LITERACY STATIONS • Compound Word Match • Syllable Sort • Parts of Speech Sort MATHS ACTIVITIES • Greater/Less Than Rainbows • Weather Patterning GAMES • Matching Games SIMPLE WORKSHEET ACTIVITIES, GAMES AND PUZZLES • Discussion Weather Wheel • Scrambled Weather Words • Word to Picture Match • Weather Words Missing Letters • Seasonal Weather Drawing • Alphabetical Order • Wordsearches x 2, plus keys • Weather Words Shapes • Weather Words Opposites • Favourite Weather • TOU/Credits TOTAL PAGE COUNT: 127 ******************************************** RELATED RESOURCES What's The Weather Part 1: Presentation and Display What's The Weather Part 2: Activities What's The Weather Part 3: Literacy and Maths Activities ******************************************** Teacher's Toolkit Bundles

Cloud Types - 5E Lesson Bundle

Cloud Types - 5E Lesson Bundle

Product Description Cloud Types - A 5E Lesson Bundle for both middle and high school students. This bundle will fit your classroom whether you're teaching middle or high school as you can choose between two lessons, each geared towards a certain grade range. Everything you need in one tidy package. This fully-editable, no prep bundle follows the 5E model and provides step-by-step instructions on how to implement it in your classroom. Each included resource is either completely or almost completely self-contained meaning little to no classroom materials are needed. This bundle contains a mix of digital and paper-based resources and encourages collaboration and creativity at every turn. Since 5E lessons provide differentiated instruction in their very nature, your students will complete the unit with a deep understanding of: • Cloud Naming • Three Basic Cloud Types • Ten Fundamental Cloud Types • Rare Clouds • Lightning • Clouds and Weather Your students will also confront and overcome the following misconceptions. • Clouds form because cold air doesn’t hold as much water as warm air • Clouds are made of water vapor • Clouds always predict rain • Rain falls when clouds become too heavy and the rain drips out or bursts the cloud open • Rain comes from holes in clouds, sweating clouds, funnels in clouds, melted clouds • Lightning never strikes the same place twice • Thunder occurs when two clouds collide • Clouds block wind and slow it down • Clouds come from somewhere above the sky • Clouds are made of smoke How does the 5E model facilitate learning? • It emphasizes inquiry, critical thinking, and the process of science • Its success is backed by countless scientific studies that demonstrate its effectiveness • It’s built around the idea that humans construct knowledge and meaning from their learning experiences. That they build upon their prior knowledge and to be effective, learning needs to be active and allow the participants to construct new knowledge from their experiences
