This could work if the fair test aspect was removed and replaced with an observation sheet. then the children could look for plants that are providers, small insects that are feeding off the plants then any evidence of predators (spiders or birds). Not every science investigation is a 'fair test' with variables that need to be identified.
A Power Point presentation one of the first I have made with a little help from my son.<br />
To introduce food chains and the technical vocabulary around the objective such as producer, predator, prey, consumer and decomposers.<br />

This is a detailed session plan for an observed literacy lesson relating to the poetry ‘Silly Stuff’ unit. I have attached the Smartboard file that links to the session plan. I hope someone may find this useful. My class really enjoyed this unit. Please leave feedback.
This is a Smartboard file together with two session plans.
The first session plan labelled Tuesday does not relate to the smartboard. However, the session plan called Wednesday does relate to the Smartboard.
I used worksheets appropriate to my class, as some children were only able to do on the hour and half past.
Smartboard notebook with giving change activities to use as a whole class.
This works alongside the session plan, which is detailed. My class varied from a level 1b to a level 3a in a year 2 class of 29, inc. three EAL.
I was observed and assessed for this lesson and achieve good with outstanding features.
I used baskets of items on the children's desks for independent activities so they could choose an item and work in pairs to find the correct change.
Tasks were differentiated by: resources, TAs, and amount that children had to find change from.
This activitiy worked over four days. Children enjoyed the role play element.
The ICT maths resource referred to is in a Maths Pack. I have details, if required.
Year 5 and 6 lesson plan and smartboard file relating to coasts, coastal erosion and sea defences. Lesson encourages children to find out about different sea defences using ICT and hands on activity using sand and water. Worksheets and sand activity are attached within the session plan.
The videos used can be found on Primary Espresso.
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 />

Please note; If you are a teacher who uses text books and placemats then this resource is probably not for you. However if you are a teacher who thinks out of the box, relishes in motivating, challenging, engaging and seeing your student progress, then these resources are indeed for you. They are stimulating and so engaging that your students do not realize how hard they are working. <br />
Lesson Overview <br />

A edgy take on lab safety and equipment review. Many times we repeat the same lab safety and equipment reviews every year. Make it creepy with the Asylum Lab Safety and Equipment Memory game. The students will need to match 25 pairs of cards. One card has a description and the students need to match it with a picture or explanation. The game allows the students to continuously review lab safety and equipment while having fun and being competitive.<br />
The cards are square and saved as a pdf. By adjusting your page count per printed page you can adjust the size of your cards. I suggest laminating them and keeping them year after year. I use one set per lab table. You can have the students compete within a single table or between groups.
