MESSALINA FLASHCARDS WITH DEFINITIONS. WJCE GCSE LATIN LITERATURE: NARRATIVES 9542

MESSALINA FLASHCARDS WITH DEFINITIONS. WJCE GCSE LATIN LITERATURE: NARRATIVES 9542

There are 10 packs of flashcards one for each paragraph of the prescribed text. I have made flashcards for every single word in the text. This is perfect for ensuring that you or your class know all the latin, so the literature test runs as smoothly as possible. Knowing the latin is essential before the exam and you will not have the time to look up the translations and for the majority of the trickier words, WJCE does not give the translations in the exam. All of the latin words I have included are in their conjugated form and appear like they do on the actual test so no brain power is needed when doing the exam. It is an extremely value resource and will certainly save time and boost your grade.

Timeline Ancient Greece Poster

Timeline Ancient Greece Poster

This timeline shows the history of the Ancient Greek Civilisation, divided into the most common periods. Above the timeline you will find a short description of the highlights of each period in the same colour as that period on the timeline. Below the timeline, important events are added in the colours of each period. The specific events that marked the transitions between the different periods are added with thicker borders and fading colours.I refer to this poster almost every lesson when I'm teaching Greek or ancient history! It is very useful to allow the students to keep an overview in their mind when we're talking about a specific historical event or person. My students have gotten so used to my poster that they for example say that Plato of course lived in the "yellow"; period, that Homer's texts are from the "blue" period and that the story of Theseus and the Minotaur is situated in the "pink" period. The file is large and detailed enough to print on an A1 format as a poster. I have a Dutch version available too.

Ancient Civilizations Inventors Extraordinaire IB PYP Unit of Inquiry

Ancient Civilizations Inventors Extraordinaire IB PYP Unit of Inquiry

Take the children back in time. Be the Miss Frizz of your classroom with this complete IB PYP unit of inquiry. Where We Are in Place and Time: Ancient Civilizations contributed to today’s society. This is one of my favourite social studies units of inquiry. By delving back in time, thousands and thousands of years, the children can explore the concept of time and exactly how life was like back in time, how the ancient inventions brought change to society and how they have impacted our life today. I have taught this unit of inquiry for 5 years, with both 3rd grade and 5th grade. Each time, I find that it is one of my favourite. There is so much to explore. With over 100 pages of interactive, hands on , engaging, inquiry based activities, this transdisciplinary unit will take you through math, science, geography, reading for information and, of course, history. As we travelled through time with our toilet paper timeline, we explored the cradle of civilization: The Mesopotamians. From there, we travelled into North Africa to visit the Ancient Egyptians. The inquiries came flooding fast and furiously as we learned more and more about how people lived way back then through hands on technology experiments, design experiments, research, communication and much ,much more. How do they sail back up the river?How did they move such enormous rocks to build the pyramids?How did the wheel begin?How do scientists come up with ideas?Who invented math? How did our writing evolve from their symbols of writing? Why do they have different gods? What happened to their gods?Learning how to read clues from artefacts and also from evidence in the text, helped us to become incredible historians as we had to figure out the source of ancient artwork. This involved a lot of reading for information, analysing text and recognising non fiction text features. Through explorations within math, reading, writing, geography, history and art, the children gather knowledge of how ancient civilizations developed and contributed to societies today. If you enjoy this complete unit of inquiry, you may also like my others: Revolutionaries, Rainforests and Food Chains, Adaptations of Living Things, Exploring poetry, Exploring Explorers and many more found in my blog store.Enjoy!

Ethics Case Study #1: Dinosaur X

Ethics Case Study #1: Dinosaur X

In this provocative exploration, students will determine who rightfully owns a dinosaur skeleton straddling public and private land. What percentage does each actor own of the skeleton? Does the discoverer of the skeleton own it, or should it be divided between the owners of the land where it was found? Once ownership rights are settled, where will this prehistoric gem be displayed? This resource is a launching point for small group and whole class discussions, analytical/persuasive papers, and an introduction to creative problem solving and ethics. Students sift through seemingly equivalent choices and are forced to take a stand by ranking and defending different positions..PDF and .PAGES versions included.

Britain in the Iron Age

Britain in the Iron Age

LESSON OUTLINE• A map with the legend 'here be dragons' will be displayed on the IWB.• Students are to discuss their own ideas about what those words mean, and share with a partner, before it is ‘unpicked’ as a class. • Explain that, for the Romans, Britain was on the very edge of the world - because it seemed so far away, it was portrayed as savage and dangerous, similar to the 'here be dragons' legend used on later maps to signify the unknown.• Students are to read through three accounts of Iron Age Britain - Julius Caesar, Strabo and Herodian. They will then attempt brief drawings of the bizarre inhabitants described by the Roman authors.• With the Roman view established, students will now look at information around the room, displaying archeological evidence, in order to disprove the claims made by the Romans.• Students will stand along a continuum at the front of the classroom to answer a question posed by the teacher, thus demonstrating their newly acquired knowledge.DIFFERENTIATION• Three versions of the Roman writer sources - HA, MA and LA - depending on levels of literacy and reading.• Also, three versions of worksheet for activity using archeological evidence, again depending on ability.AFL• Questionning and sharing after students have read the Roman accounts and completed their drawings.• Teacher circulation and questionning as students complete task by going around the room.• Whole-class discussion as plenary.
