The World News Crossword - July 15th, 2018

The World News Crossword - July 15th, 2018

In this week’s puzzles… (1) A crossword based on events in last week’s news. A search & cloze puzzle detailing Part 2 of the amazing rescue of the 12 boys and their football coach from the flooded cave in northern Thailand, A crossword about NATO, and there are no clues, and A crossword all about Belgium (which achieved 3rd place in the FIFA World Cup). In last week’s news… All twelve boys from the Wild Boars football team and their coach who were trapped in a cave in northern Thailand were rescued. The US president said NATO member countries aren’t contributing enough to NATO (even though countries don’t contribute anything). Britain’s Foreign Minister resigned because he didn’t like the state of Brexit negotiations. Nestlé products are banned from zoos in Melbourne and a man has taken Monsanto to court alleging its weed killer caused his cancer. George Clooney fell off his motor bike while in Sardinia. Justin Bieber got engaged, maybe. An American tourist shut down Vienna airport because of a live artillery shell in her luggage. Scorpions invaded Brazilian cities, sort of. And after 66 years, an Indian man finally cut his finger nails. Angelique Kerber and Novak Đoković won the Women’s and Men’s Singles at Wimbledon. France won the FIFA World Cup, but the most loved and most successful football team during the World Cup was The Wild Boars of Thailand.

World Cup Geography Skills Lesson

World Cup Geography Skills Lesson

To embrace the World Cup 2018, this document is to get the students to think about where the players in the England team play when they at home but also to improve Geographical skills that can be used later in their education. There are a series of tasks to get the student to improve how they use an Atlas, then improving statistical skills (mean, median, mode and range), creating bar and scatter graphs and then going back to the Atlas to find out about the teams that were in the quarter-finals of the 2018 World Cup. This is great for students in Year 7 to 9 and is a great opportunity for a display. With Year 7-8 students work in pairs, Year 9 are able to this by themselves. I would really appreciate feedback on this resource as it is the first one I have uploaded. Also I would like to know if people have adapted or included anything else! Thank you

Ideal for KS3 or KS4. The worksheet deals with land use in the Indonesian rainforest and asks pupils to read about the standpoints of different groups including miners, farmers, local council members and others and make a decision on how to use the rainforest most effectively.

Rainforests (Kho Yai National Park in Thailand)

Rainforests (Kho Yai National Park in Thailand)

A 6 lesson scheme of work planned for Year 7 students using photographs from my own trip to the rainforest in Thailand as a more unusual case study. The scheme of work covers location, climate and adaptations of plants and animals to the rainforest. Lesson 4 was my particular favourite as we cleared all the chairs and tables to the sides of the classroom and (using the photographs in the presentation as inspiration) took a virtual field trip to the rainforest together. Lesson 5 and 6 are based on the Making Animals activity from the original Thinking Through Geography book by David Leat. A copy of this would be useful for these two lessons. You will also find a copy of the Geog.2 textbook useful.

SEN friendly carousel featuring 4 different habitats of  CHINA. Fully DIFFERENTIATED.

SEN friendly carousel featuring 4 different habitats of CHINA. Fully DIFFERENTIATED.

Students consistently enjoy this lesson and enjoy learning about the unique animals and plants of each region. Depending on the class, this carousel could last 1-2 lessons and involves each student travelling to different habitats and completing a range of diverse and engaging tasks indepedently. You will need to set up the classroom into 4 large tables which can seat 1/4 of the class. I usually blue tack the sheets to the desks and surrounding walls and double print so that everyone can choose which tasks they’d like to complete at each station. Lots of potential for PA of answers and I usually put this work on display and talk through the IUCN red list/show them videos of the animals in China.

Y3/4 Polar Environments - Locate the Coldest Places and Compare to Others

Y3/4 Polar Environments - Locate the Coldest Places and Compare to Others

This is a Y3/4 topic (geography) lesson on polar environments. The lesson teaches pupils how we measure temperature, how the celcius scale works and what temperatures you would typically expect to record in given scenarios. If your school has access to a class set of thermometers, you could add an extra section where pupils measure temperatures around the classroom/school premises. The main activity involves researching the winter and summer average highs/lows in different parts of the world, including one location each in the Arctic and Antarctic. It is intended that pupils work in mixed ability pairs and they will need an ipad and an atlas in each pair.
