This is a timeline I've made to go around the top of the wall in my classroom. Laminate it, stick the red strip together into one long line, and the small rectangles to &'branch&'; off times/events. I've then included times from 2000BC to current day, as well as cards to stick on with historical events including the birth of jesus and mohammed, building of the pyramids, ancient greek history, and a lot of british history. Hope it saves you some time :)

Inspired by Pokémon Go's use of maps, this curriculum gets students coming back to school this fall outside observing nature. The curriculum activities can be used at all grade levels and for all abilities. It includes school activities, as well as flipped classroom activities at home.
To teach observation, investigation, and presentation skills using integrated curricula to become more aware of natural phenomena in neighborhood and school environments and how to use science, math, geography, and oral/written descriptive language to study, record, and share environmental information and understanding.
1. Students will observe natural phenomena (birds, trees, and in SchoolZone and MyZone).
2. Students will record information collected and synthesize through scientific thinking based on observation, research, inquiry, and presentation.
3. Students will work in pairs/groups to record, assess, and synthesize data, using research and observations made during investigations of their natural environments.
SEPTEMBER - a make and read small book
Print a single A4 page for each child to trim and fold into an 8-page book. There are 5 pages with text only, and 3 pages with illustrations and text. The book is about the ripening of fruit and seeds in the autumn, the migration of some of our summer birds, Quarter Days and Michaelmas still being heard in a flower name. Each child can complete the book with drawing and colouring.
The guide (Fold the September book) suggests activities for a mixed ability group: reading (8y Reading Age); finding further information about the nature notes and talking about their own experiences. Each child can prepare a cover which will wrap round the book and give space for adding decoration, a title, author, date, contents/index, author’s notes and blurb. There is the opportunity to master some of the language of giving instructions. Children (and adults!) will like the small size and the ‘magic’ of making a book from just one sheet of paper.
