Ebola 2 lessons

Ebola 2 lessons

This is 2 lessons about Ebola the more recent outbreak and clean up efforts. It looks at development indicators along side the disease. The second lesson focuses on a TED talk by TV's doctor Javid who worked for MSF on the clean up. The teacher reads the story and the students draw what is being said to them. They really connect with the story in this way and have very positive results.

All the Way to Havana - Guided Reading

All the Way to Havana - Guided Reading

All the Way to Havana, by Maragarita Engle, is a wonderful introduction to Cuba, its village and city life. The pictures tell as much about Cuba as the words, making this book very accessible to all students. The cars are the main focus of this book. They are old, and fixable by the families who own them. Each has its own special noise, an introduction to ONOMATOPOEIA. A family travels from a small village to Havana to celebrate a baby’s birth. What this little boy sees from his car window is the essence of Cuban life. I have created a packet with the best of reading comprehension strategies and questions that lead to a “quick” understanding of Cuba’s culture. The illustrations in this book are riveting.

10 x Day of The Dead IDEA Analysers Keyword Starter Settler Wordsearch Art RE PSHE Cover

10 x Day of The Dead IDEA Analysers Keyword Starter Settler Wordsearch Art RE PSHE Cover

10 starter-style I-D-E-A (Identify, Describe, Explain, Analyse) starters covering 10 topics and themes. Students complete the ones they are comfortable with (eg lower ability complete 'Identify' where they simply can list their thoughts, higher ability complete 'Explain' and 'Analyse' where more detail and sentences can be used. Some of the next one can then be completed based on what they thought, to push them a little further. Themes are: 1/2. Keywords 1&2 3. Art 4. Makeup 5. Beliefs 6. Skull Art 7. Danse Macabre 8. Food and Drink 9. Food Ideas 10. Origins There's actually more than 10 altogether on the ten themes as some have more than one sheet, enough to print out for a whole class and each student to have a different one to aid in differentiation as some are easier to generate words from than others. Also included is a powerpoint with images related to Day of The Dead for printing as handouts/inspiration. 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!
