SaleGeographical Enquiry Skills Crossword (and more)

Geographical Enquiry Skills Crossword (and more)

KS3 Geography begins with a topic on Geographical Enquiry Skills. Geographical questions. Media. Bias. Accuracy. Beliefs. Values. Reports. etc. This simple crossword reinforces the skills involved in simple geographical enquiries and reinforces the way in which the language of the topic is used. This resource includes three more crosswords: European countries and their capitals, Asian countries and their capitals, and African countries and their capitals. Of course, the solutions are also included.Crosswords are simple, easy, and effective for reinforcing language skills, spelling, problem solving and of course they help students with handwriting issues. Best of all, the students enjoy the challenge of crosswords, whether done in small groups/teams, or as an individual activity. My preference is to use them as a small group activity because the students learn from each other and the whole activity becomes a competition. Look for new KS3 Geography and History crosswords each week. Print them off and store them away for homework activities or for when colleagues are absent.

SaleClassroom Management ~ Talking Tickets!

Classroom Management ~ Talking Tickets!

This packet is a great idea for classroom management! In this packet, you will find six sheets of “Your Turn To Talk Tickets!” Students might place two or three tickets at the top corners of their desk during a direct instruction activity. When a student has a turn to talk in response to the activity, after speaking that student can give you one of his/her tickets. When the student’s tickets are gone, he/she can not talk again until the activity is different. You can make many, many variations for these tickets! Additionally, there are six other pages of “You Owe Me” tickets. These tickets might be issued to students when they forget and interrupt instruction and other students’ learning. These tickets state that they will owe you time! These tickets suggest that time is taken in increments and not all at one time!
