Volcanoes Lesson

(0)
A Geography/ Natural Disasters PowerPoint lesson and 3 Activity Sheets on the topic of Volcanoes. The 16 Slide PowerPoint teaches pupils about what volcanoes are, how they are formed, their main types (shield, cinder cone, composite), the ring of fire and reasons why people choose to live near them. A lot of opportunities for active learning; questioning and discussions; links to amazing footage. All the text is editable so that you can tailor it to the needs of your class! Suitable for KS2/ lower KS3 I welcome any suggestions! My email address can be found on the last page of each resource. Please consider leaving a review if you enjoy the resource. Thank you for your interest, Hoppy Times :)

Volcano: Create a Labelled Diagram

(1)
A differentiated resource for producing a labelled diagram of a volcano. There are two main versions of this activity, but both of them require the information cards. These can be printed out and placed around the room. The first version is an all in one A4 sheet that has the diagram and labels that can be cut out and stuck on. This is better suited to lower ability students, they can find out where the parts are by looking at the information around the room. The second version requires the diagram with no labels. Students have to collect the information from around the room and write it on their diagram. I run this as a memory game, giving students two rules: they can only write on their diagram at their desk, and they cannot move the information sheets.

Plate tectonics - Earthquakes and volcanoes

(1)
A brilliant selection of resources I have created to teach plate tectonics. I have included easy to follow PowerPoint's for each lesson and attached the relevant worksheets/printouts. The students loved the diversity of the activities which includes maps from memory, desk mat tasks, market place, card sorts, earthquake proof building design, timelines, cartoon strips, a mid unit test and lots more interesting tasks. I have included starter tasks for each lesson, learning objectives using what, why and how, main tasks and consolidate/plenary tasks. They are really easy to follow. I have included lessons on the following topics: The structure of the Earth Japanese earthquake and tsunami Earthquake hazard management Supervolcano What are earthquakes and how are they measured? Pompeii 79 AD What are the hazards associated with volcanoes?

Volcano Poem Planning lesson

(0)
As part of our Y4 topic on natural disasters we looked at poetry and this was particularly looking at figurative language. This pack includes: Smart Notebook on the lesson including a starter, AfL activity, input for main activity then a page you might use on following day related to the other resources. Volcano worksheet (Publisher) with 2 versions, the harder version extends to personification. Worksheet based on a poem 'City Jungle' which asks the children to look for the key features using my thermometer system. Copies of the thermometer - I use this for self and peer assessment to see which of the features they have included in their work. (Thermometer is used as we go from cold to hot write). I used the main lesson for an observation which went well and the work was great quality.

A creative music project for Key Stage 2, to run alongside any classroom geography project about volcanoes or earthquakes. This resource consists of: * a medium term planning overview * 4 easy-to-follow weekly music lesson plans * a pupil composition planning sheet * a teacher's informal assessment/observation form Musical instruments required are standard school percussion instruments (tuned and untuned), although electronic instruments (eg. keyboards) and children's own instruments (e.g. guitars, violins, recorders etc.) can easily and successfully be integrated into this project. Some of the other resources mentioned are youtube videos, best displayed on a Smartboard (please check with your school whether you are allowed to access youtube). A digital audio recorder or video recorder (or mobile phone with those facilities!) is also required to record the final compositions.

This resource contains an overview sheet and a full planning pack. Problems downloading? Click here for download help This is a ten-lesson unit of work based around the book 'Escape from Pompeii' by Christina Balit, designed for Year 3 and Year 4. The ten lessons in this unit aim to give children the opportunity to read and listen to the Escape from Pompeii story a number of times. In the first week, children will engage with the text through discussion, drama and even creating a parachute volcanic eruption in order to increase their familiarity with the story. They will have the opportunity to articulate ideas about the text using an increasingly varied vocabulary. There is a grammar focus on using powerful verbs and a chance to develop thesaurus skills. In the second week, pupils will plan their own story based on the structure of Escape from Pompeii and they will then have the opportunity to draft, edit and present their final narrative. The literacy objectives covered in this unit are: To use sensory descriptions To use a thesaurus to improve my writing To perform a poem as a group To use powerful verbs To prepare a short drama piece based on a text To write a descriptive recount To make a story plan To write my own narrative To edit my writing To make decisions about how to present my writing The PDF file contains ten full lesson plans and all pupil worksheets/resources.

Volcanoes Assembly or Class Play

(0)
Volcano Assembly or Class Play This class play can best be described as ... explosive! It is highly recommended that you purchase a pair of ear plugs before agreeing to sit through this performance! Even the Roman god of fire cannot control these forces of nature. ... though no one is about to try and control him! This script covers the questions what, how, where and a few examples of when - though ‘Pompeii up’ provides a far more comprehensive historical account of what happened in those two Roman cities destroyed by Mount Vesuvius (available off www.plays-r-ussell.com) Duration - around 10 minutes reading time but this does not include music (or explosions!) Cast of 30 - easily adaptable up or down. Sample Text: Music 1 Mars – The Planets – Gustav Holst (Children file in, seating themselves in speaking order, along two rows of fifteen seats facing the audience) Narrator: Good morning and welcome to our assembly on Music 2 Fire – Arthur Brown (See Production Notes) (Vulcan strides onto stage) Vulcan: (Pounding his chest) Me! The mighty Roman god of fire, Vulcan! Narrator: (Irritably) But its volcanoes we’re doing today! Not Roman gods! Vulcan: (Sighing) So, where do you think the word volcano comes from? Narrator: (Sarcastically) Oh, now. Don’t tell me. (Pauses) Oh, that wouldn’t be you would it? Vulcan: It most certainly would! Nothing to do with that Mars you were just playing. Narrator: No! No! That’s the planet Mars – from The Planets by Gustav Holst! Vulcan: But I thought you said this assembly was on volcanoes? Narrator: Correct! But we thought that music was just right to set the tone – of high drama! Vulcan: Oh! Is that what we’re getting this morning? Narrator: I hope so! There’s nothing dull about volcanoes! (Sound of loud snores from ‘Sleeping Giants’) Vulcan: Er, it would seem not everyone agrees with you! (Exit Vulcan) (Sleeping Giants all raise their heads, wipe their eyes, blinking at the audience) Narrator: Oh no! We haven’t woken you, have we? Sleeping Giant 1: Nah! Don’t worry! Sleeping Giant 2: We’re dormant volcanoes! Sleeping Giant 3: Little chance we’ll erupt! Sleeping Giant 4: (Yawning) In fact, if you don’t mind, we’ll just go back to sleep again! Narrator: No, no! Not at all! Please be my guest! (Sleeping Giants put heads down and resume sleep)
