Expedition Route Card System (Auto-Calculating)

(0)
Anyone who has ever working with DofE group knows the pain of getting participants to create quality route cards, after 15 years of working with School and Youth Groups, I decided to create a tool to simplify the process. The spreadsheet looks near enough identical to the standard DofE Route Cards, your participants need to fill in some basic info like Speed, and Start time, and then add the start point and finish point for the first leg. The sheet will then copy the information from the finish point of the previous leg to the start point of the next leg - so no messing around writing everything twice. Participants will need to add distance, height climbed, and planned breaks for each leg, and the sheet will calculate the timings element for you - which can be a real pain in the bum when working with decimals etc. You can also amend start time and speed to update the timings. Which is useful as a teaching tool. This is a good partner for an electronic mapping systems, since many cannot produce good quality route cards, but do make the job of measuring distances much easier. There is instructions on the first page, and detailed instructions with each cell that requires user input, any cells not requiring user input are locked. Enjoy!

Google Expeditions - AR - Introduction to Genetics - DNA and RNA #Google Expeditions

This is for any teacher that is introducing genetics to their students. You could also use this to introduce students to parts of a cell. Another use would be an introduction to the different domains of life and an example would be the Domain Eukaryota. There are so many uses for this Google Expeditions AR lesson. If students don’t understand about DNA and chromosomes when learning about life and the cell, then they kind have missed the most important part. #GoogleExpeditions

Lessons focus on where tropical rainforests can be found, their characteristics, how plants and animals have adapted to the rainforest, the goods and services the rainforest provides, what impact deforestation is having and how Madagascar is trying to sustainably manage its rainforest. The lessons reflect the requirements for the EdExcel 1-9 GCSE.

Starter article gives details of a failed Arctic expedition with some literacy style short questions. Details of the task also given. Groups then work on planning the individual elements of the expedition (When I used this the class had also studied diet - if you haven’t done this, that part could be omitted) on the relevant work sheets (I would recommend printing on A3).

Addition and subtraction within context of a Rainforest Expedition

(0)
A set of 4 differentiated booklets that we created for year 4 within the context of our rainforest topic. The opening letter inside each booklet sets the budget that the group had. Lower ability and very lower ability had prices in pounds, leading to multiples of 10p for the luxuries. Middle and higher ability had pounds and pence. The idea was that, within their budget, they had to buy 1 of each essential and spend any leftover budget on luxuries. It prompted such good engagement and enthusiasm within my class that the lesson was graded Outstanding (in old Ofsted terms). It could easily be edited but as it took us ages, I feel others should get some use of it too.
