Introduce children to bacteria, viruses and fungi as micro-organisms. They are living organisms and are very small. Investigate how the numbers of bacteria grow by simple division and gain an understanding of their size compared to a metre.
Suitable for Y6 pupils.
A good summary of the topic of Micro-organisms including matters such as the defintion and micro-organisms, descriptions of bacteria and viruses and other engaging techniques for children including education games and links etc that are beneficial in the course. Higher tier material is used in comjuction with key objectives to identify the purpose of the lesson.
A selection of resources that i produced for our recent Year 6 leavers prom.
This year it had the theme of The Oscars. After spending a long time tryiing to find suitable resources, i drew a blank.
I then decided to create my own. This involved the children coming up with a selection of funny award categories to be handed out on prom night.
It also involved the children taking part in a film and movie quiz.
All resources are easily adapotable to suit the users needs
A selection of classic board games that I have adapted for independent use by children to practise or test each other on their 'weekly spelling words&' in a fun and interactive way. I laminate the rules and game boards back to back so they last for a long time. The only other equipment required are counters and spelling words to be written on the spelling cards sheet and then photocopied and cut up for each playing pair
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.
This colorful set of Science (Atoms) clipart papers include 8 high-resolution (300 dpi) PNG files. They are 12" x 12". These clip art backgrounds may be used for personal and small commercial use.
“ 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
