Space travel problems and difficulties, gravity, temperature, oxygen, cosmic radiation. Full lesson.

Complete lesson looking at the difficulties associated with space travel, how they can be overcome and NASA's project to launch a manned mission to mars. This 18 slide lesson contains: theory, questions, answers, paired work, gap fill, carefully selected video, literacy, high quality images throughout etc. Good lesson and great value for money. Objectives: 1) To understand some of the problems with putting people into space. 2) Explain how these problems can be overcome. 3) Form your own opinion on whether it is worth sending people to mars. PLEASE NOTE: The preview images are poor (this is an issue with the tes preview creator software) but the PowerPoint images themselves are all good. Best wishes, Jack Wiseman

Fictional Planets Wordsearch Science Physics Solar System Starter Settler Homework Cover Lesson

Fictional Planets Wordsearch Science Physics Solar System Starter Settler Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Fictional Planets'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Shadows - Game, Vocabulary and Visual Story Prompts + 31 Fun Teaching Activities For The Classroom

Shadows - Game, Vocabulary and Visual Story Prompts + 31 Fun Teaching Activities For The Classroom

You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different shadows being shown in each of the photos. I have collected together some of my best teaching resources about shadows and I think they would make a lovely lesson. There is the game of guess the shadow, followed by reviewing the key words about shadows and a creative writing task to complete. In addition, I have added a teacher guide which explains how to complete another 31 different fun tasks using these resources. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching set of story prompts. The students could also take five of the laminated photos and create them into a story . The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.
