TRADITIONAL CORMORANT FISHING IN YUNNAN CHINA - CAN IT SURVIVE

TRADITIONAL CORMORANT FISHING IN YUNNAN CHINA - CAN IT SURVIVE

This unit stands alone. It is provided to assist teachers with a unit that has a proven student interest level. It can support UK Curriculum Key Geography stage 3 locational and place knowledge or Australian Curriculum Year 10 Place and inland water study. It can also add to the study of sustainability/impact of change affecting traditional lifestyle. As a traditional lifestyle/culture cormorant fishing has be mainly an activity carried out by family groups. The training and and ownership of cormorants have been handed down through generations. In more recent times younger generations have, at times, been enticed away from this activity. Other larger fishing operations using different methods have intruded. This unit takes students on to Lake Erhai, Dali in South-west China to witness this traditional lifestyle and to find possible answers. Flexibility of approach is possible as you project and discuss the visit by photographic evidence and text material. Realising that you may not be able to provide hard copies of the descriptive pages it is suggested that you project the colour pages on screen and use these as a resources to promote class discussion. The final question/summary page is provided as an attachment page in colour and in black and white. Join the excursion on to the lake but don't stand up in the boat.

Science words and activities for Chinese students learning English as a second language (14-18 yrs)

Science words and activities for Chinese students learning English as a second language (14-18 yrs)

Thank you to all those who have bought this resource. Please leave feedback as it helps me better align the material to student needs. This resource bundle (85) combines material from multiple resources focused on Science for Chinese students learning English as a second language. The purpose of the bundle is to provide material for teachers who have native Chinese speakers in their class. The students are regularly put into other subjects (eg Science) as part of the experience yet often with limited material that targets both language and content knowledge. This material has been trialed on 20 students over 12 months and refined over the year. This bundle includes material in biology, physics, chemistry and astronomy. Specifically, * A list of translated general science question phrases typically asked in worksheets and exams * A list of useful describing words when filling out worksheets and exams * Chemistry: translated list of words (fill in Chinese or English versions), works sheets covering periodic tale, electron configuration, acid/base, PT trends, fun worders, cross word puzzles, cloze-style activities, short answer questions, True/False activities, 15-20 minute tests, PT, who am I activities and a metal-non metal practical activity. * Biology: translated list of words (fill in Chinese or English versions), anatomy diagrams for labeling, plants/flower diagrams for labeling, short answer questions, ecology x-wrds, poster activity, classification activity. * Physics: translated list of words (fill in Chinese or English versions), light and sound x-word, graph w/s, calculation w/s, forces w/s, pressure w/s and power w/s, mechanics w/s * Astronomy: translated list of words (fill in Chinese or English versions), short answer questions, word finder. Admittedly, there is slightly more chemistry resources than physics. The students told me that chemistry and biology (and the associated terms) were their biggest issue. Please leave me feedback to let me know what and how I can improve the bundle or tell me of material you are searching for.
