Debate the Issue: Oil Drilling in Alaska<br />
How can we balance economic development and environmental protection?<br />
Background of the Issue:<br />
The goals of economic growth and environmental protection are often in conflict. For example. Power plants provide energy, but they pollute their air. Dams supply water, but they destroy natural habitats. Finding a balance between growth and conservation may involve trade-offs. Use the timeline and the quotes by former President George W. Bush and Defenders of Wildlife to help you answer the questions and better understand the issue.<br />
This is a creative and engaging game. <br />
There are 15 timed questions - they are all linked to the main slide. <br />
The purpose - if the class get 12 or more correct, they win the reward. If they get less than 12, they get the punishment!<br />
Be careful - each questions has a countdown timer!<br />
This is adaptable to any subject, for any age by simply over-typing the questions. <br />
This is the easiest and most engaging way to have a revision quiz!!<br />

Africa Day happens every year on May 25th . It is a day to remember the creation of the African Union, and in particular, a day to celebrate African unity. <br />
Jesuit Missions has designed two resources in celebration of Africa Day. Both for primary and secondary school students, the resources aim:<br />
• To deepen students’ understanding of the continent of Africa<br />
• To experience African school culture<br />
• To be aware of the work of Jesuit Missions in Africa<br />
The resource contains:<br />
• A Scheme of Work and Lesson plan<br />
• A PowerPoint<br />
• A PDF with example African playground games<br />
NB: This resource has been designed for Jesuit (and Catholic) schools in particular, however, it is perfectly adaptable to suit the needs of any school.
A 'how to write' PPT using the silliness of the Film Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus but with an actual undercurrent of seriousness. I made it trying to show ESL learners the reasons why animals adapt, in order to survive. <br />
The cards mentioned are from another resource under the title Animal Threats.<br />
In 2015, world leaders agreed a goal to get water and toilets to everyone everywhere by 2030 as part of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development.<br />
WaterAid’s latest campaign - Toilets Saves Lives - petitions the UK government to ensure that plans are put in place for this goal to be achieved.<br />
This term, help your pupils learn about why toilets are so vital with our fun and engaging Super Toilet animation series, lesson plan and activity sheet.
Exploring energy saving, this activity flows from the story book Fair Days Pay.
It can also be done as a stand-alone activity to explore the cost of energy in the home. A Saving
Energy Factsheet is provided for use in the classroom and at home.
Using the click and pop-up pictures, children explore the the ways in which they can contribute to
saving energy around the home (and even at school). Each pop-up offers advice on how they can
make small changes that all add up to a big saving.
This is a must for all budding eco-warriors.
Conduct the quiz as a baseline for unit, using the activity to identify gaps in the children’s
knowledge and understanding and to set the agenda for learning. Record scores for children on
scoresheet (this is in the teachers area).
Repeat the quiz as a follow up for unit - record follow up scores for children on scoresheet to
evaluate their improvement over the unit.
We suggest that the children revisit the Costing the Earth click-on activity and boardgame at home
with their family if this is practical and appropriate. Alternatively the downloadable storybook
has a paper version of the activity included. This will familiarise the family with the unit and it’s
content and promote discussion on the issues raised.
Saving Energy Factsheets to take home
Storybook (pdf version) to take home
I Pledge plan taken home to add family contribution (see I Pledge lesson plan).
Children will consider individual actions they can take to reduce energy waste around the home
and the school environment. Children will work collectively to create an energy saving action plan
for the class or whole school.
Numeracy and Literacy extensions are included
