NATIVE AUSTRALIAN WILDLIFE ADAPT TO THE ENVIRONMENT OF THE SOUTHERN LOST CITY

NATIVE AUSTRALIAN WILDLIFE ADAPT TO THE ENVIRONMENT OF THE SOUTHERN LOST CITY

The dissected sandstone plateau of the Southern Lost City of Limmen National Park provide a distinctive habitat for a range of native wildlife. This unit has a focus on survival and adaptation to this area. The Limmen National Park was proclaimed in 2012 and research is in its early years. Those with an interest in the natural environment who ventured into the area when it was used as for cattle raising (pastoral leases) made lists of wildlife observed. In the environment within and around the Southern Lost City they began to record that certain native species were increasingly difficult to sight. Coinciding with these observations were the increasing sightings of intruding feral animals such as cane toads, feral cats and feral pigs. Their conclusion was that the feral intruders were having an affect on the survival rates of native wildlife by habitat modification and food resource reduction. Future research into this situation will shed further light on these impacts. Of particular concern were the reductions of 3 species covered in this unit. They have reached the "endangered" list and were heading for extinction within this area. Of particular concern were sightings of feral cats. Though not yet numerous in this park their numbers were likely to increase and their efficient hunting and killing skills would place native bird and small mammal species under threat. The feral cat situation is covered in another unit entitled "The feral cat menace - impact on Australian native wildlife". This unit can stand alone as an introduction to the impact of feral animals on native wildlife. It cat be used to introduce the topic of tha considerable problem caused by the increasing population and spread of feral cats which are regarded as the top predator affecting native Australian wildlife. That unit will also consider programmes carried out by the AWC (Australian Wildlife Conservancy) to conserve and protect native wildlife of Australia and avoid (if possible)adding names to the list of species that have become extinct. The worksheets (colour and black and white) are included so that hard copies can be distributed.

Australian Homework Project

Australian Homework Project

Students choose from nine homework tasks linked with the topic, Australia. They choose at least one activity from each section (English, Creative, Investigative). Designed to be completed over a period of a half term. There are a wealth of open ended tasks that encourage the student to take ownership over their homework, with the option of completing more tasks if they wish to. The other benefit of the projects are that they allow for independent learning and encourage parents to get involved if they wish to.

Australia booklet

Australia booklet

This was created for our Australian Day we had in Y5. You need to use this resource in conjunction with the ticket resource. I placed information sheets around the class on 4 tables alongside books about Australia. Then, on two tables I had artefacts I made myself - with information to explain it. I had a range of artefacts stuff. The children loved it and thought it was all for real. They used this booklet to gather information (from the sheets/books), they could draw images of the artefacts and write about it. This is why you will see the different sections. I kept if small as the activity was only for about 20-30 minutes - after a discussion about locality, climate, etc. I had a suitcase with a variety of clothes for different seasons and we had a little discussion about the current season and what type of clothes to pack (for the flight activity that was due after the museum activity). I hope you find it useful.

Australia Day - Museum Tickets

Australia Day - Museum Tickets

We had an Australian Day and different ‘activities’. One activity was the ‘museum’ whereby children had to research artefacts and other information. To make it more fun, they had to present their tickets before they could enter the ‘museum’, which was a class set up with everything around the room. They had a little booklet (see booklet resource) and had to complete the booklet by using the resources in the ‘museum’.

CONSERVATION IN AUSTRALIA'S LIMMEN BIGHT MARINE PARK - DUGONGS AND GREEN TURTLES

CONSERVATION IN AUSTRALIA'S LIMMEN BIGHT MARINE PARK - DUGONGS AND GREEN TURTLES

The coincidence of major fishing grounds with the feeding grounds of the dugong and the nesting grounds of the green turtle provided challenges for the creation of the Limmen Bight Marine Park. The purpose of the Park was to protect and conserve the natural elements of the ecosystem. Another concern was to accommodate if possible the concerns and interests of others who had an interest in the attractions of the Marine Park area. This study has a focus on fishing - both recreational and commercial. The major sea grass meadows - the main source of food for the dugong - lie within the proclaimed area of the Marine Park. Along the shoreline the sandy/muddy beaches are a nesting ground for the returning green turtle. Globally the green turtle, once plentiful, has suffered significant population decline. The Limmen Bight area is a major egg laying area for the turtle. As a consequence this area is a focus of efforts to protect and conserve numbers. Australia has joined the world wide programme. By map, photograph, graph and description you can take your students to Limmen - a very recent Marine National Park and see why these two animals in particular are in need of protection. The attachment sheet provide opportunity for discussion and completion.

Places Unit of work 7 lessons including test

Places Unit of work 7 lessons including test

This unit of work has been written for the start of Year 7, but could be used within any of KS3 or even adapted to Year 6. It starts off with what a place is and describing where we live in the world. It then uses local fieldwork to investigate places and moves on to improving knowledge of the UK, Europe and the World. You will need to adapt the fieldwork lessons slightly due to the local surroundings to your school, but this will only involve a localised google map and a couple of images. There is a test at the end of the unit.

THE EPIC 1844-45 EXPLORATION EXPEDITION OF LUDWIG LEICHHARDT ACROSS THE AUSTRALIAN SAVANNA

THE EPIC 1844-45 EXPLORATION EXPEDITION OF LUDWIG LEICHHARDT ACROSS THE AUSTRALIAN SAVANNA

The German explorer Ludwig Leichhardt joins the group of European explorers who made long and arduous journeys across the “Great unknown” interior. Well - unknown to Europeans and colonists with settlements along the coastline. Join his epic exploration from Moreton Bay (Brisbane) to the very remote colonial settlement of Victoria on the shores of Port Essington. Follow his progress by map and description. Assist your students to become aware of the dangers faced. Understand why this long journey which was expected to take 4-6 months ended up taking nearly 14 months. Find evidence along the route by photographic inclusions. Recognise the challenges faced by members of the exploration party. Find out why the ultimate success of this exploration depended on the skills of two aboriginal guides in the group. Find out how Leichhardt contributed to the naming of features within the Australian Savanna. Work out why this expedition has been given the title of “epic”. The description, maps and photographs provide a record of the journey that had been labelled as “a failure” was to be praised as “a success”. The attachments are provided for the provision of hard copies. Your students can develop their own expedition map and the screens are numbered so that answers to the set questions can be located and filled in. You may decide to use the attachments as you screen the pages in class or you may used them as check questions when the unit has been completed. Ludwig Leichhardt is generally less well known than Burke and Wills and McDouall Stuart but this expedition places him alongside them in terms of length, difficulty and achievement. Find out why. This unit can lead on to one of the great mysteries of Australian European exploration - the mystery surrounding the disappearance of all members of Leichhardt’s exploration group on the 1848 exploration attempt to reach the Swan River Settlement from Moreton Bay (Brisbane).

Paired Texts - Australasia - Literal, Inference, Meaning and Summary questions

Paired Texts - Australasia - Literal, Inference, Meaning and Summary questions

This guided reading resource includes a pair of texts about Australasia with four comprehension skills sheets to complete, providing reading passages and questions that are challenging and engaging. Using the ‘LIMS’ approach, students work through Literal, Inference, Meaning and Summary questions to ensure that in the course of a week, they have practised skills in reading right across the Common Core. Text is differentiated and an answer scheme is provided. Suggested itinerary: Day 1 (30 mins) – Read both texts as a class. Highlight key parts. Discuss together. What have we learned? What do we want know more about? It is worth asking the students to write down any questions they have about the texts and putting them on display. Day 2 (30 mins) – Literal sheet Day 3 (30 mins) – Inference sheet (or meaning sheet if you prefer) Day 4 (30 mins) – Meaning sheet (or inference sheet if you prefer) Day 5 (45 mins) – Summary sheet and looking back at questions from the start of the week. This is the second in a series of Paired text resources looking at the seven continents of the world. Keep an eye on my store. Differentiation: All questions are the same, which should make marking easier! However, the texts differ, with asterisks in the bottom right corner indicating the reading level.

OUTSTANDING TRF Debate lesson- 'Should we contact the last remaining tribes on Earth?'

This lesson is always enjoyable as the students are fascinated by the content and are always up for debating each other! Depending on the group, this usually involves 1 prep lesson, with lots of videos (links in the ppt) and discussion and then the debate lesson 2- which I usually finish the biosphere/TRF topic with. Works really well if you choose the mediators/judges based on their personalties and abilities and ask senior staff to join you for it and be a part of one of the teams/judges. This lesson works for various ages as the question is very open to their own views and your role is to facilitate their ideas. Enjoy & please review if you download :)

OCEAN PLASTIC- 3 whole lessons with IT based pairs activity- fully scaffolded & engaging!

This resource could be used as part of an Environmental Issues SoW. The aims are to reduce the amount of plastic used in your school through the class creating persuasive adverts encouraging their peers to buy reusable bottles. Each lesson uses a variety of learning techniques based on enquiry and all video links are in the notes section of each slide. I will then display the students work around the school and see if it has any impact! Water consumption is incredibly important for concentration and should be encouraged within the school environment. These lessons could also be used to create cross curricular links in DT and Art and potentially provide the design for school merchandise! Please review if you download! Enjoy :)

Intro to COASTS- Ideal for assessing independent learning ability. Diverse and lengthy tasks!

Intro to COASTS- Ideal for assessing independent learning ability. Diverse and lengthy tasks!

I created this for my students as a more engaging alternative to textbook activities. It introduces the coast, key vocab, types of waves, true/false quiz, and discusses pebble vs sans beaches using beaches in the UK. The tasks are extremely diverse and tackle a range of geography skills. Every task is differentiated with a challenge task and examples. Should be printed on A3 in colour and given 1 per pair. Will take at least one full hour, if not two! The second worksheet is matched to the video which is about the South Australian coastline and contains a series of questions matched to the video and the tasks slowly get more difficult, ending with a persuasive exercise about species management. -FULL LESSON Please review if you download!

World Traveler Social Studies & Math Research Project Continents Elapsed Time

World Traveler Social Studies & Math Research Project Continents Elapsed Time

This is a research-based learning project that integrates social studies, math, and writing. To complete this project, students will go on a world tour of six different countries around the world. Through their travels, they will learn the location of these countries along with important facts. To get to each destination, students must use their budgeted money to buy plane tickets. They will use subtraction to calculate how much money they have left after each purchase and determine the length of each flight (elapsed time). They will also mark each location on a world map and label the continents. After traveling to all six destinations, students will use 3-digit addition to calculate the total money spent. They will also write a descriptive paragraph about a landmark of their choice and an opinion paragraph about the location they would like to visit again. Includes: ✓ Teacher instructions ✓ World map in color and black/white ✓ 12-page passport booklet ✓ Customs stamps for each country ✓ Boarding passes/airline tickets ✓ Travel book to hold tickets and stamps ✓ Answer keys The passport book is where students will record their work. They will research each location to complete its page in the passport. They will find the country, continent, capital city, official language, currency, climate, and important landmark. Kid-safe website suggestions for conducting research are included. The first page of the passport is the travel budget. Students will use this page to keep track of their tickets and calculate how much money they have left after each purchase. The last three pages of the passport include a landmark matching activity, a page with addition, subtraction, and elapsed time questions, and the descriptive and opinion writing activities. The countries students will visit include: • Australia • Brazil • China • Egypt • Germany • Russia
