From Plant to Plate: The Journey of the Banana {Lower KS2}

From Plant to Plate: The Journey of the Banana {Lower KS2}

Looking at the connections between food, health, society and the environment, students can begin to imagine how what we eat determines how the world is used.Food takes a complex journey from its origins on farms, ranches, rivers, oceans and other sources to consumers’ plates. Along the way, it passes through the hands of producers, processors, transporters, warehouse operators, retailers, consumers and waste handlers.This pack will help students understand that most of the food that is bought in stores and eaten by them, comes from farms. They will explore the food to table process.This resource is part of a larger integrated unit of The Story of the Banana.**********************************************************CONTENT• Cover• Fact Book Teacher Notes• Fact Book• Discussion Cards Teacher Notes• Discussion Cards, plus group activity• Choice of 3 styles of related comprehension text questions• TOU/CreditsPAGE COUNT: 24**********************************************************RELATED RESOURCES**********************************************************Teacher's Toolkit Thematic

Thinking Skills Think Outside of the Box Series ~ Quick Starts

Thinking Skills Think Outside of the Box Series ~ Quick Starts

Today’s students are the problem-solvers of the future. If they are taught factual knowledge only, they tend to respond with conventionally correct answers rather than exploring creative solutions. All students can learn to think critically and creatively.Students need to be able to judge, analyse and think critically in order to participate fully in a democratic and technological society. This can be achieved if the teacher recognises the value of thinking skills and provides opportunities for the thinking processes to be modelled and developed.This ‘Think Outside of the Box’ series provides teachers with straightforward ideas and activities to help students develop these skills.In this pack you will find 80 quick start task cards – 4 cards per page. I have provided 3 options for printing.These ‘quick starts’ are ideal warm-up activities for the beginning of a lesson. They should be used flexibly and can be used in any order at any time. As these task cards are intended for repeated use, I would suggest laminating them for durability.When to use: (10-15 minutes group/class)• at the beginning of a lesson• during circle time**********************************************************CONTENT• Cover; Teacher Notes• Brainstorm Task Cards x 8• How Could You?

CVC Word Games

CVC Word Games

CVC words are usually the first words children learn once they know their consonant sounds and short vowel sounds. In CVC words, all the letters are pronounced, and they are pronounced the way children expect.Although many words in English do not follow rules of phonics, most of them do. So teaching children patterns that work most of the time builds confidence to figure out words that are new to them.******************************************************CONTENT• Cover• Follow Me/I Have, Who Has?

Learning English The Fun Way! - Bundle

Are you learning English as a second language (ESL)? Are you looking for a fun way to learn English as a second language? I have developed a way to learn different languages based on my experience as an ESL teacher. This pack has 57 different settings for students to talk about in English as a second language. The worksheets themselves are in English and the students do need to translate the places and objects they see into English as a second language. At the end of the session, the students can play a fun game of word bingo to show they have mastered that day's vocabulary. Try it, it is a lot of fun for everyone!
