Going for Goals - 'Fill the Sky with you Biggest Dream'

Going for Goals - 'Fill the Sky with you Biggest Dream'

Beautiful colouring/sheet sheet and text from the book to encourage to children to think about what their dreams maybe. Extract from the book reads; ‘Dreams are precious things. They are worth more than silver or gold, yet they are free. Everyone can own a dream, no matter who they are or where they are from. Dreams must be loved, treasured, nurtured and encouraged to grow strong and blossom.’ Text creates a wonderful discussion point on the beauty, and the importance, of having a dream in their life, something they work towards hope for, something that is just for them. This could lead into their own poem about dreams. Share children’s finished work with the author, by getting in touch with me on here, I would love to see their work and maybe share on my website. See other colouring sheets and colouring bundles in other listings. Illustration by Lisa Buckridge, all Images and text Copyright and cannot be reproduced or sold on.

Moral issues: Introduction to animal rights and animal welfare issues

Moral issues: Introduction to animal rights and animal welfare issues

This lesson is specifically for young adults to encourage debate - would work well as part of critical thinking, philosophy & ethics and getting students to develop essential skills in debating key issues. Whether we are aware of it or not, animals are a huge part of our everyday lives. From the food we eat to the pets we keep, it’s important that kids today understand what happens to animals and how best to treat them. The rise in veganism and vegetarianism is bringing up a number of issues and causing rifts in society. Both present a number of pros and cons. In this lesson plan, you’ll be taken through what animal rights and animal welfare mean, what they stand for and generally encouraged to push debate with your class.

Understanding Earth's Water Supply

Understanding Earth's Water Supply

Through a classroom demonstration, students will calculate the percentage of fresh water available for human use and explain why water is a limited resource. Students will choose appropriate units of measurement for  volume. With guidance, students will pose questions to clarify practical problems or inform a scientific investigation, and predict what the findings of an investigation might be. Students connect volume and capacity and their units of measurement. Students will be able to physically represent percentages using 100 pieces of paper and articulate how smaller volumes of water represent the Earth’s total water content.
