Back to the Future Activities / Futuristic/  Newspapers / Comprehension / Robots

2020 UPDATE

2015 was the year that in the Back to the Future films they visited the ‘future’. October was the month of ‘Back to the Future Day.’

I have designed a unique set of resources designed to engage children in Literacy. Also excellent for a futuristic topic. Please note this is a set of unique resources, not a unit plan. It is designed for teachers to use as they wish or even as part of a whole school topic. There is tonnes of material and this took many hours to assemble.

The resources could be used as part of a thematic unit or within other units of the curriculum. Excellent for Newspapers and Non-Fiction writing opportunities in particular.

Included in this resource pack…

  • Multiple sets of Newspaper articles (edited by myself and made highly visual in worksheet form) with comprehension and activity worksheets I made for them.
    -Additional extension activities fitting the articles
    -Punctuation activity
    -Original trailer and Poster from the movie with activities I designed around them
    -The stuff the film got wrong!
    -Punctuation activity
    -Ideas for a Back to the Future week / day.
    -Display materials
    -Movie clips ‘making of’
    -Hover Chase Video
    …and much more!

Due to the popularity of this resources I have added some futuristic robot activities which tie in well with the topic!

An up to the minute and current set of resources that children will love, especially boys and a brilliant way to encourage creative writing / comprehension skills as well as looking at the features of Newspapers.

Designed for KS2 but could be easily differentiated for lower KS3.
