Canadian Rivers Wordsearch Geography Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Canadian Rivers Wordsearch Geography Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Canadian Rivers'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Cold Environments

Cold Environments

This is a bundle of 11 lessons and covers the "Cold Environments" option from the new AQA GCSE. Includes Homeworks and an end of unit assessment. Also included is a lesson on Sir John Franklin's mission to discover the Northwest Passage. It's not in the spec, but I've always wanted to plan and teach it. This unit took well over 50 hours to plan, so please save yourself some time... (and buy me a beer). My lessons are planned and taught using Smart Notebook, but PDFs are also included. The Case Study used for development opportunities and challenges is ALASKA. Please note: A couple of these lessons require the Arctic with Bruce Parry DVD. (£6-7 from Amazon). It's excellent. Thanks for looking.
