The Egyptians (Embedded/Alternative Education)

The Egyptians (Embedded/Alternative Education)

This resource has been created with hard to reach young people in mind. These resources have been used at The Island Project as part of vocational learning as a way of engaging young people who struggled with ADHD, Autism, SEMH and challenging behaviour. Most learners who attend our project are also struggling academically and therefore these materials are designed to allow tutors to scale the difficultly as desired. This bundle contains 6 project plans and is aimed at giving young people the opportunity of learning about Ancient Egypt in a less academic way through more hands on activities using arts and crafts, social play, woodwork, Lego and more. This range of sessions was delivered over a 6 week half term, each session being focused on per week.

KS3 Chemistry: Bloodhound SSC: How to make a Carbon fibre Cockpit for a 1000mph car.

A 3 min video with animations and actual footage to describe how we made the carbon fibre monocoque for Bloodhound SSC. The BLOODHOUND Project is not only about building a car to go 1,000mph, but it is also a perfect vehicle for education of STEM subjects. Over the life of this project we’ve been able to inspire over 2 million young people!

Chess Set Classroom Game Board

Chess Set Classroom Game Board

Imagine a game where the challenge and skirmish is governed based on experience and knowledge of the game without using luck as its driving source. Yes, a game played that is not determined by the roll of the dice, swiping up or down, or flipping a card. This game is called chess. Since before the 6th century AD, chess is considered to be one of the oldest games ever invented. Today your students probably think chess is old and boring, right. A game that has best left in the dark old days before PlayStation and Angry Birds? But wait! This chess set is like none other. This chess set is large-scaled, highly visual, and even glows in the dark. Each piece has its own light embedded which illuminates the entire game board in complete darken. This chess set will look great in your classroom! All you need to do is watch how your students flock towards it. In this package you will receive the templates for each chess piece even the board in which they lie. This is a great chess set to learn how to play the game and in style. Looking at each piece in detail, on their backside, you can see a brief description of how it moves as well as an illustration. This is very helpful for new players. With the lights turned off, the instructions can also be read even more so. On the top of each piece shows a side view which makes it very helpful if you want to play looking down at the board. All you have to do is cut, laminate and hot glue a LED light to each piece and you are ready to go. This project is fun especially if you work with your students to build it. Assembling the game board is self-fulfilling and even therapeutic if you like DYI projects. The quality is amazing and you will never find a chess set that is so innovative and unique!

Research & Build a House - Architectural Styles & Their Creators

In this lesson, students learn more about architecture as they research the history of different architectural styles, and learn about the creators of those designs. The lesson starts with a whole class Microsoft PowerPoint presentation (editable) to view the styles and start discussion. Next, students choose one of the styles to research further and create a presentation with that information. Optionally, these may be presented to the class. In the next part of the assignment, they design a house of their own (to scale) in the style they researched using Sketchup (a free CAD program that can be downloaded at: https://www.sketchup.com/ or used as an online tool). After completing the drawing, students build a model of their house to scale using chipboard, cardboard or other materials. Finally, students answer questions to reflect on their learning for this unit. This lesson was designed for middle school (grades 6-8) but could be used in upper elementary grades or high school as well.
