Endangered species plant pots

Endangered species plant pots

This creative and practical activity is aimed at primary school children, who will require the help of an adult for scissor use. Children will select an endangered species from Arkive.org, to recreate in plant pot form. They must read about the habitat where the animal lives and recreate this using another plastic pot as a drip tray for excess water. The students will then fill the pots with soil and plant their seeds. As well as teaching students about the environments in which endangered species live, the importance of reusing or recycling plastic can also be highlighted throughout, as an additional educational element. Students can also learn about the life cycle of plants while their seeds grow into seedlings, then fully grown plants. Find out more about endangered species: arkive.org/endangered-species/ Find out more about plastics and their effect on the environment: www.arkive.org/c/marine-plastics Find out more about plants: arkive.org/education/teaching-resources-7-11#resourcePlants

Autumn Slow Cooker Soup

Autumn Slow Cooker Soup

I used this recipe with my classes regularly at various times - the slow cooker used was at the back of the room safely. Sometimes for various themes including Harvest, bonfire night, autumn or winter, literacy instruction writing and sequencing, measuring and counting and sometimes linked to the story 'Stone soup'. It was great for Healthy eating PSHE links and DT links with cooking as well. It makes enough for all the kids to have a taste (1/3 of a cup each....some obviously loved it and some didn't but gave them a chance to try something new. I used to send a copy of the recipe home too so parents knew what we were cooking and also the kids who liked it had a copy.
