The codes include ciphers, Morse code, cryptograms and a final 4 digit code based on the decoders/clues. Each clue and code is different. The codes require students to think differently to decipher or decode them. Some codes are easier than others. Some codes require critical thinking to determine what a letter/symbol stands for. Each code will reveal interesting facts about Susan B. Anthony. The use of secret code will keep your students engaged while competing to find the final code.

(Animal Agriculture) Egg Industry Predicts Cages won't go away by 2025

(Animal Agriculture) Egg Industry Predicts Cages won't go away by 2025

The egg industry is under high pressure to go to cage free shell egg production by 2025. Producers don’t think this change will happen. Read about current hen housing and examine hen numbers. Read this article and complete the student guide to consider this topic in more detail. The article is 2 pages long with lots of charts and good graphics. The guide is a 3 page PDF and has students look at the graphs, as well as read the article for more information. Finally, students write an opinion reflection on the topic, which addresses several key questions the article raises. This would take about 25 minutes. Thanks for looking! See my other animal agriculture products! ☀☀☀ PLEASE FOLLOW ME FOR NEW PRODUCT UPDATES ☀☀☀

Princess Anne Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson British Royal Family

Princess Anne Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson British Royal Family

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘Princess Anne’. 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!
