You are what you eat! Learn about healthy eating habits.

You are what you eat! Learn about healthy eating habits.

This beautifully illustrated book and the song that accompanies it were originally written for my ESL programme about agriculture & farming. The text serves as a great base for teaching kids about healthy eating habits, looking after ourselves and making choices that help our communities and our environment. A great base for any project which asks kids to reflect on what we eat and where it comes from. Illustrations by Maria Tarrago and design by Eva Morell.

Beast from the East. Snow day work on Weather & Disruption

Beast from the East. Snow day work on Weather & Disruption

The video can be used by students from KS2 to KS5. It is Geography focused but can be used for critical thinking (for the second task option). The video asks the questions of how have we ended up with so much snow and also about who is affected. For the latter question students are asked to give an analysis as to the impacts. This can be an open-ended task for home/snow work or as a class task with more guidance from the teacher. Tasks: Choose ONE or BOTH questions to investigate and present your findings. How has this weather occurred? Use diagrams and chains of reasoning. (Note the plurals!) What are the consequences of the weather for the people of Britain. Again use chains of reasoning in your analysis. The cold weather seems to have affected the microphone. Apologies for the sound quality in places. #BeastFromTheEast

MEKONG DELTA SERIES - PART 2  LAND USES AND SURVIVAL

MEKONG DELTA SERIES - PART 2 LAND USES AND SURVIVAL

The Mekong delta ranks second in the list of the area of world deltas. The scaled map on the title page provides an opportunity for students to recognise the area (almost 100,000 square kilometres. This unit has a focus on the major land uses which are the basis for the survival of just over 18 million people. The main activity is growing the staple crop of rice. This is carried out by thousands of farming families on small areas. Rice is marketed within the delta but Vietnam is a major exporter of rice. Rice is milled within the delta and moved out of the delta via road to Ho Chi Minh City or by ship from the delta distributaries to overseas markets. Linked with the two large delta urban areas (My Tho over 800,000 population and Can Tho 1.4 million population) are market gardening areas producing a range of fruit and vegetables. These larger urban centres ara also areas of light industry.Vietnam also exports quantities of fish caught in the fresh waters of the distributaries or in the brackish waters of the mangrove swamps. Of particular significance is the raising of shriimp either in the water cannals and ponds of the rice fields or in the saline waters among the mangroves. The attachment is provided to promote class discussion. It could be handed out as a worksheet. This unit can standalone but it is also part of a series which, when completed, will give a broader understanding of this significant area.

Mackie's Dairy Farm: From Farm to Scoop || Understanding Food Miles and Their Impacts

Mackie's Dairy Farm: From Farm to Scoop || Understanding Food Miles and Their Impacts

This lesson aims for all students (2-6th grade) to understand the concept of food miles, how they impact our health and the environment. By viewing how Mackie's Dairy produces their ice cream from cow to scoop, students are able to see this process first hand. The lesson also allows for flexibility and creativity, providing opportunity for a taste test of local vs. store bought products, inviting a local gardener or farmer, and tracking food miles using math.

THE CASE OF FARMER PHY'S DISAPPEARING SAND  ISLAND - MEKONG RIVER - CAMBODIA

THE CASE OF FARMER PHY'S DISAPPEARING SAND ISLAND - MEKONG RIVER - CAMBODIA

Rivers erode, transport load and deposit material. This is a study of a situation which illustrates the interrelationship between the Mekong River and the need for human adaptation the changing situations. To make the situation clearer this unit has a focus one one small sand island about 100 kilometres north of Phnom Penh - the Cambodian capital. Annual flooding from the Mekong River is embedded in the farming calendar and under normal flood levels farmers look forward to the time when flood waters cover some of their land. It brings the gift of added soil nutrients in the layers of sand and silt left on their land as the waters recede. However, for reasons explained, 2006 and 2011 brought more intense floods. The local farmers were given flood warnings as the Mekong floods entered the sand island areas. Many were evacuated and despite warnings there were casualties and significant damage. Join farmer Phy as he travels back to his sand island 6 years after the 2011 and see via maps what 2011 did to his sand island and his way of life. The attachment maps and the fill-in activity page are provided. Your students may well enjoy the journey to the island - but hopefully they will gain some understanding of farmer Phy's disappointment.

Sheep Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Farm Animals

Sheep Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Farm Animals

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of 'Sheep'. 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!
