Science: School Subjects: Colouring Page

Science: School Subjects: Colouring Page

This colouring page is deliberately minimal so that students can use it to add their own knowledge, style, or design to make it personal to them. It can be used to test prior knowledge or to introduce a topic, or as a revision activity or to see what new knowledge students have acquired. The picture could be stuck to the front of a student's notebook, file or folder at the start of term, to help them get organised with all of their new subjects. It could also be used as part of an English as a foreign language course to talk about the subjects students might study at school, and which are their favourite or least liked subjects.To follow my world first solo row around the coast of Britain and daily life as an explorer:* Free educational videos: YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/sarahrowssolo or Amazon Video: http://amzn.to/2jno3v8* Free virtual field trips: Skype in the Classroom: https://education.microsoft.com/vikingquest* Paid school speaker bookings: http://www.schoolspeakers.co.uk/speaker-listings/sarah-weldon

Information Gap 1 - Looking for a Job

Information Gap 1 - Looking for a Job

Information Gap 1 - Looking for a JobGet the students working in pairs.Give one person of each pair the Student A page and the other the Student B page.There are four different jobs being advertised in the local paper. However, there are ten gaps on each page.Students should ask each other questions to find out the information that is missing from their page, then write it down, asking for spellings as necessary.Encourage them to communicate verbally to get the answers, rather than letting each other look at their pages!When all the students have finished, bring the group back together and ask checking questions to elicit the answers, as well as to find out how much the students have understood about the other material in the adverts.

Debatable

Debatable

These sheets are very much aimed at year 5/6 pupils. Over a number of years I created 'aids' and 'answers' for SATS questionsThe aim of the 'aid' was to give children ideas of the type of the vocabulary to use when answering a 'debate/ persuasive' style question and what type of information to include in their answers.Colleagues having seen the 'aid' sheet suggested I added some answers!! I have not given answers to all the questions.

Study schedules and lifestyle habits in different countries

Study schedules and lifestyle habits in different countries

This discussion activity is designed to raise intercultural awareness in classes comprising of students from different countries. It can be used as an icebreaker at the beginning of a course when a class first meets, or as an introduction to the theme of culture in a class who know each other well. It can also be used to develop vocabulary relating to daily routines, personalities and food. For young children, this activity could be used in conjunction with telling the time and ordering daily activities. For older students, it could be an introduction to cultural aspects such as attitudes towards time in different countries and could lead on to learning about, say, Hofstede's cultural dimensions theory.The resource consists of one handout designed for students to use in class. It contains a series of discussion questions to prompt conversation in pairs or small groups and leads on to an activity where students design their own schedule for the school/college/programme they are attending. The personalised schedules could just be discussed verbally or they could be realised in the form of a poster or using a planner on the computer before being presented to the rest of the class.
