Trees: our Autumn environment

Trees: our Autumn environment

This animated Power Point asks the audience to consider ways in which trees are important to us. Pupils are asked to consider the changes that are happening in trees during Autumn and why we see such beautiful colours in the environment during this season. Poetry about Autumn is introduced where pupils count the syllables and spot patterns in the lines and then a descriptive paragraph about Autumn is displayed and the audience is asked to contrast how the author feels about the approach of Winter. Pupils are shown a poem about the wind and are invited to discuss how the wind is personified. Finally they are invited to write a sensory description about their favourite season. I include word documents which support the PowerPoint which could be used for homework or further investigations/creative writing. Suitable for ages 8+

Rivers & Water Class Assembly script **Fully editable**

Rivers & Water Class Assembly script **Fully editable**

This class assembly was written for Year 6 but could easily be used in lower years. The script takes around 20 minutes to perform and has enough parts for any sized group. There are lots of speaking roles that can be shared or added to and plenty of non-speaking parts as well. The first scene opens with people around the world discovering all the water on earth is gone. It leads to news reporters following the story around the world to various famous rivers (including Amazon, Nile, Ganges, Yangtze, Mississippi and Mekong). We hear about some of the current environmental issues at each site including pollution and the effect on ecosystems and food chains, urbanization and soil erosion, global warming and flooding, animal extinction, over population, deforestation, rain forest destruction, People finally come and demand their water back but the rivers ask for certain promises from the humans. The play offers suggestions for 'viewers' to help out our environment in general. There is a very effective demonstration of water waste from leaving taps on while brushing teeth that leaves the audience thinking about their actions. The document is written as an open and editable word document, so you can edit and adapt for your group. We hope you enjoy!

3D Biomes Project

3D Biomes Project

This project is a great addition to your habitats or ecosystems unit. It can be used as a supplemental learning resource or as an alternative assessment. It includes 8 vibrantly colored biome posters in addition to the cube biome pages. Detailed step-by-step assembly instructions are also provided. This resource includes eight different biomes. When assembled, each 3-D biome cube contains four biomes. It is at the teacher’s discretion to make this an individual or group project, and whether students pick the biomes they want to work on or if they are assigned. The biome pictures contain enough details to show students the main features of each, while leaving room to draw in additional plants and animals to demonstrate an understanding of each biome. On the front of each cube side, students write a description of the biome as well as listing plants and animals found there and the locations where the biome exists. And, these finished resources will look great when displayed in your classroom! The following biomes are included: ★ Rainforest Biome ★ Grassland Biome ★ Marine Biome ★ Desert Biome ★ Freshwater Biome ★ Tundra Biome ★ Deciduous Forest Biome ★ Taiga Biome (Boreal Forest) Four biomes go on each "cube." They actually form triangular prisms, but I'm counting the air inside each where kids can add pop-up animals, modeling clay, etc. so I call them cubes. :) Enjoy! ~ SunnyDaze on TPT
