Fun with butterflies: co-ordinates, symmetry, life-cycle, cloze procedure

Fun with butterflies: co-ordinates, symmetry, life-cycle, cloze procedure

This PowerPoint is based on Spring time and in particular, butterflies. Pupils will use their knowledge of timestables to produce co-ordinates on a grid. If plotted correctly they will produce their own pixelated butterfly. More scientific diagrams show the parts of a butterfly and the life cycle of a butterfly. Pupils are asked how they can add features to the pixelated form to make it more life like. Finally there is a cloze procedure about Spring where pupils are required to put in appropriate adjectives from a list.This resource is intended for revision purposes and will test numeracy, literacy, scientific and artistic skills in a cross curricular approach.Suitable for ages 7+

Crocodiles , Alligators  ...  Crocodilian !

Crocodiles , Alligators ... Crocodilian !

Crocodiles and Alligators are intriguing subject matter! This product contains a lesson plan, 2 Powerpoints, a two-page worksheet, and a graphic organizer. Also included is an activity for students to draw what Crocs might look like in 200 million years. Students will discuss: What do Crocodiles eat? What characteristics have helped them survive while other species have become extinct? What would you name a crocodile? (although this is more of a creative "brain break," I've included names of crocs at our Texas zoo- in 2014.)How can a crocodile breathe and look around while submerged? How many species are there? and much more. Many crocodile body parts are discussed (teeth, eyes, tail, etc) as well as habits (inability to sweat, sounds, buoyancy, etc.)This 2 day lesson gives the option of allowing to use the graphic organizer to further research certain species and note findings. Teachers in grades 4-7 may choose to delete some of the more academic slides and keep the presentation simple. The PowerPoints are editable for that reason. (Originally, this lesson was created for an 8th grade class.)Thanks!!
