Impacts of Tourism- DRAMA based activity- Fully Differentiated Lesson for SEN/Mixed Ability

Impacts of Tourism- DRAMA based activity- Fully Differentiated Lesson for SEN/Mixed Ability

The students always love this lesson as it involves them taking on Tourists or Resident roles in 5 different countries. The students get to explore how tourism impacts different people across the world using coloured role cards ( that you must laminate!) and discussing the various types of tourism and positive/negative effects that the industry has. All the cards have been made specifically for this lesson and are differentiated so that you may choose to give the higher ability students the resident cards and the lower ability the tourist cards as they contain slightly less complicated vocabulary and you can target your questions much more easily. The lesson contains a variety of assessment techniques and the student assessor roles always work particularly well- if you have a large group then use 4/5 student assessors. The exit cards only take 2/3 mins and I always insist on complete silence so the students can leave what was a high energy lesson very calmly. Ignore the homework slide at the end! Was made for a low ability group that couldn't cope with any more demanding homework. Enjoy!

10 x Countries Wordsearch Geography Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

10 x Wordsearches on the theme of 'Countries'. Countries are: 1. Australia 2. Austria 3. Canada 4. Croatia 5. Egypt 6. Greece 7. India 8. Italy 9. Lithuania 10. Spain 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!

Survival Invention BUNDLE (STEAM with Explanation Text)

This resource has been designed to be done alongside Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo, but can also be done independently of the novel study.

They will investigate different weather patterns in a specified area of the world before deciding on what they will need to survive. Children will be encouraged to use different diagrams (annotated, cross-sectional and exploded) to show their ideas before making and evaluating them. This bundle also includes the Explanation Outcome where children will explain their inventions according to the 2014 National Curriculum English Standards for Year 6. Link provided to digital resources for editing and sharing on Google Classroom and Seesaw.
