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.

Earth's Seasons through Inquiry - Creative Thinking

Earth's Seasons through Inquiry - Creative Thinking

This is my version of how I used to teach about seasons, with a focus on an inquiry through the use of photographs and data. (read notes on powerpoint for further guidance). Without teaching it directly or showing a video or doing the standard demo with a small tennis ball that no-one can see what is going on, use this alternative idea for teaching about the seasons. Use a demo/video at the end to consolidate the learning.
