Please leave a review if you download this resource.Differentiated resources used for some atlas skills lessons. The crosswords were used for 'treasure-hunting' in the atlas to find answers to clues. The children LOVED this activity!Crosswords were put together using this website: http://worksheets.theteacherscorner.net/make-your-own/crossword/The UK features documents were used to introduce the children to more advanced maps in the atlas - those involving resources, AONBs, nature reserves, transportation etc. They also informed the children about the UK.These resources were aimed at Year 6s (who had had only limited experience of using atlases before).
Students are to investigate the location and climate of the following four countries: Iceland, Australia, India and Chile. They use atlas skills, create climatic graphs and evaluate what they have learnt and the comparison of climates according to the location on the globe.
Student friendly achievement levels for various sports. Can be used for a display or for use with students as an expectation handout for unit evaluation. Some of the sports are British if you are looking for a variety.
A lesson on 'show, don't tell' to up level speech and vocabulary, thereby making work more interesting to the reader. Uses the concept of paint charts to encourage students to make more interesting word choices for said as the the colours get darker. This is then applied to a series of settings where students need to show what is happening rather than just tell. Includes models of what students can aim for.
Paint charts with alternatives for said (asked, whispered, cried, shouted, begged, laughed)
Presentation with modelled examples at different levels.
A blank postcard that can be used for a variety of purposes. Blank on one side, the other side has stamp, franking mark, bar code, lines for the address, vertical line through the middle and the word POSTCARD. Nice as a back to school activity to catch up with what students did over the summer
Two sets of dominoes for some of the difficult language in The Raven - each card has a word on one side and a definition of a different word on the other side. Students start with START card and first word and then try to find definitions to help them access the poem on a deeper level.
A series of labels that can be used to encourage students to find better vocabulary. Each resource is a sheet of the same word that can be printed on labels and stuck in books for students to find alternative vocabulary either with a thesaurus or by themselves.
Always a successful starter activity.
