This is one of several powerpoint lessons that I have uploaded. The lessons are skills based and all cover war texts - from a variety of different wars. The lessons are contextualised in terms of the war period that the text originates from. The lesson is ready to teach, although you will wish to adapt and differentiate. The other lessons can be used alongside it, but all are suitable as stand-alone lessons. This lesson covers the context of World War 1.
This could be a lesson suitable for any language lesson at KS3. We used today as part of a World War 1 commemoration day at school and it formed the basis of some very thoughtful discussions with students across KS3.
Detailed planning covering the topic World War 2 which includes National Curriculum objectives and cross curricular links. Lesson plans 6-11 are also on TES.\nThe file includes planning, a topic overview, smartboards, activities and adaptable resources for KS2. I used these lessons with Year 6 but they can be adapted for any year group.\n\nPlease Leave feedback or comments. Thanks
A great lesson to use for an observation, I have planned this mobile phone contracts investigation to grab slightly older children's attention and demonstrate to them why maths is relevant and worthwhile, to avoid being ripped off in the future.
Children must read through the contract details for each handset and then work out which one-year contract is the cheapest and which is the most expensive. When I have taught this lesson all children have been rapt, even 'those girls' in the corner who never concentrate! 'THOSE' girls couldn't get enough of this lesson and having taught it to Year 5 and 6 I know it is easy to adapt to suit all ability groups.
The lesson is intended to teach children to be able to work through:
- multi-step word problems
- percentate increases/decreases
- all four operations
- working with money
- creating graphs
Goes from the dinosaurs through key periods of history to the present day. Use MS Word to adapt it.
I have added the Stone, Bronze, Iron and Middle Ages to the updated version. As well as the first public railway in 1825, England winning the World Cup in 1966 and the 2012 Olympics.
