10 x Famous Cartoon Characters Wordsearches Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Wordsearch

10 x Famous Cartoon Characters Wordsearches Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Wordsearch

10 x Wordsearches on the theme of ‘Famous Cartoon Characters’. Wordsearches are: Aladdin Angry Birds Frozen Looney Tunes Ninja Turtles Pinocchio Snow White Wacky Races Wombles Woody Woodpecker 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!

British Science Week 2018 - Powerpoint/Assembly

British Science Week 2018 - Powerpoint/Assembly

This is a powerpoint I have created to use in assembly during 2018 Science week based on exploration and discovery. This powerpoint can be edited and extra slides added to share your schools activities for the week, but saves time preparing why science is important and some cool discoveries made in 2017.

This is a space-based KS2, KS3, GCSE matchup activity. Pupils consider and then rank relative altitudes of Earth features, satellites (natural & artificial) & stars. Pupils will match up and order the images, numbers and written information about each object. A good real life ordering task or use as a prompt to introduce scale and scale models. Includes plenty of information to inspire as well as aspects to prompt questions and thinking skills. As well as math and space science, can also be used as a literacy resource. Tried and tested in the classroom with various groups and ages (Yr5, Yr7, Yr8, Yr9 PGCE students). This download includes pdf files as well as the original powerpoint and word documents for easy editing.

Kirchhoff's whispers (a circuit building game)

Kirchhoff's whispers (a circuit building game)

Put pupils into 6 groups at 6 stations round the room. Pupils are given a card with a circuit diagram on it, they must build the diagram and then flip over the card. At the next station, they have to draw the circuit diagram and then take apart the circuits. At the next station they have to build the circuit based on the diagram they see, then throw away the diagram. They game continues for as long as you want it to! This assesses and develops their circuit building and drawing skills. It also shows them why it's so important to draw circuit diagrams carefully. I've printed this double sided, then laminated so that they can draw the circuit on the back in whiteboard pen. Enjoy! Please review!

The Industrial Revolution

The Industrial Revolution

A simple website research/inquiring challenge - students use the Ducksters website to help answer the questions. First I introduced the topic of the Industrial Revolution (Our unit of study is on Technology so I felt this is an era of history that needs to be taught as it changed our World). I had my class (Grade 3) do this using one Chrome book between 2 but it would work just as well as an individual research activity. The questions were written to not only improve reading skills, but also encourage some deeper thinking of the impact of this significant era in history.
