Rivers & Water Class Assembly script **Fully editable**

Rivers & Water Class Assembly script **Fully editable**

This class assembly was written for Year 6 but could easily be used in lower years. The script takes around 20 minutes to perform and has enough parts for any sized group. There are lots of speaking roles that can be shared or added to and plenty of non-speaking parts as well. The first scene opens with people around the world discovering all the water on earth is gone. It leads to news reporters following the story around the world to various famous rivers (including Amazon, Nile, Ganges, Yangtze, Mississippi and Mekong). We hear about some of the current environmental issues at each site including pollution and the effect on ecosystems and food chains, urbanization and soil erosion, global warming and flooding, animal extinction, over population, deforestation, rain forest destruction, People finally come and demand their water back but the rivers ask for certain promises from the humans. The play offers suggestions for 'viewers' to help out our environment in general. There is a very effective demonstration of water waste from leaving taps on while brushing teeth that leaves the audience thinking about their actions. The document is written as an open and editable word document, so you can edit and adapt for your group. We hope you enjoy!

Soft engineering Borth Case study with Exam homework

Soft engineering Borth Case study with Exam homework

This is the second lesson in contrast to the Medmerry Hard Engineering lesson that follows a similar format for the students to compare. Students have a starter match up activity followed by looking at the case study in detail and applying information from their resource packs to complete a variety of AO1-3 questions. Homework is an exam question to check their understanding. All resources attached and lesson. The case study sheets always work best on A3 so there is more space for students to complete extended writing.

Rivers and Lakes Wordsearch Geography Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Rivers and Lakes Wordsearch Geography Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Rivers and Lakes'. 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!

A Warming Arctic can Actually make Our Winters Colder- Article Guide

A Warming Arctic can Actually make Our Winters Colder- Article Guide

" As the Arctic warms due to climate change, it’s causing shifts in what’s called the polar vortex—a large area of low pressure and cold air surrounding both of the Earth’s poles." Have students read the article (included as a PDF) and fill out the reflective reading guide. The reading guide is in PDF, Word and a fillable Word form. This way you can print the handout for students to write on or share it for them to easily fill out on their devices as a Word form. Afterwards you can reflect on the article as a class. Should take about 35-45 minutes This article pairs well with the following other resources of mine: 1. COWSPIRACY - The Sustainability Secret 2. Regenerative Agriculture -- A Solution to Climate Change 3. No Simple Solution to Livestock and Climate Change - Article Guide 4. The Impact of Global Meat Production- Article and Worksheet Thanks for looking! Follow me for product additions.
