Many of our garden birds look the same (to our human eyes at least) whether they are male or female. But some can be told apart. Use this spotting sheet to see if you can tick off both males and females of these birds!
I will print these back to back on A4 card and laminate and cut them (Sheet 1 has the front and Sheet 2 has the back). Put the eggs in one bag/pouch/box and sperm in another (pupils should not be able to see what they are picking out). Pass each bag/pouch/box around the class and ask pupils to pick out one card from each bag. XX is female, XY is male - This activity is to emphasize that sex is determined randomly - and also that it is the sperm that determines the sex of the baby. I am planning on having a pink pouch for mum and blue for dad if anyone else wants to use the same idea....
Great resources to have in one document.I use this alongside a magic bag with objects from the rhymes. <br />Appropriate for Early Childhood Education (Pre-K and younger). ECE-LT, ECE-LT-al, ECE-LT-pc
Pet cards and skin texture boards. Children to sort the cards onto the correct board, depending on which skin type they have. Can provoke discussion around why animals have certain skins (temperature regulation, protection, sensory needs). Could also introduce camouflage.

“ The cell theory poster postcards activity” is design to help you teach and reinforce the concept of the development of the Cell Theory. Your students will have the change to read the informative, list the scientist’s contributions in a graphic organizer, write-down the information in the postcards, cut out and glue the postcards in the cell theory timeline template and create a Timeline poster showing the chronological order of these scientists and their contributions to the cell theory.
Main contributors to the Cell theory: -Zacharias Jansen
-Anton van Leeuwenhoek
- Matthias Schleiden
Materials: - Copy of this handout
Check out this well-organized Microscope label and describe worksheet. Part I is a visual that students will label and it corresponds with Part II where they will describe the function of those parts. This is a great worksheet that can easily be used for classwork, group work, homework, assessments and more!
