Library Activity Pack: Super Space Resource Book

Library Activity Pack: Super Space Resource Book

The Super Space Resource Book is an excellent resource for any library.Humans have been mystified about outer space since prehistoric times, when ancient people noticed asteroids crashing to Earth and stars lighting up the night skies. With the development of new technologies over hundreds of years, scientists have been able to unlock some of the mysteries of the universe, such as determining the size and origins of the universe and how the solar system works. The Hubble Space Telescope has provided thousands of clues as to the mysteries of the cosmos.Featured also in Super Space Resource is information about the ongoing search for life on other planets or other solar systems. While discovery is the key, the search for extra intelligence is still a top focus of many exploration missions. The truth is out there.This is a Photocopy Master ebook (28 pages) and activity pages may be photocopied for use in the classroom.

'Space, Space Exploration, Aliens & The Universe' [Philosophy Boxes] KS1-3 (P4C) (Astronomy)

'Space, Space Exploration, Aliens & The Universe' [Philosophy Boxes] KS1-3 (P4C) (Astronomy)

The Philosophy Boxes Method is a new approach to P4C designed for students in KS1, 2 & 3: it is graphically stimulating, engaging, and fun. This download is also suitable for older students: but the format was designed with younger students in mind.The topic of this Philosophy Boxes download is 'Space, Space Exploration, Aliens & The Universe'.The download comprises a P4C lesson/session that can be used 2-3 times with the same group.The aim of Philosophy Boxes is to bring philosophy and critical thinking into every subject at every level: we believe that any subject becomes philosophy when students are asked the right questions and when they think about a topic hard enough and on the deepest (most fundamental) level. The Philosophy Boxes Method presents students with a set of 'mystery boxes', when a student selects one of the boxes they are presented with 1 of 21 discussion/debate activities [that use 1 of 8 different formats].The presentation has integrated AfL so that teachers can test knowledge at any point in the lesson. There are 10 different AfL slides to choose from. The design is colourful, animated, fun and engaging: all activities require movement and teachers can decide whether students are expressing their ideas purely verbally or by using post-it notes.The nature of the design is that it can be used for short sessions (5-10 minutes) or much longer sessions (up to 2 hours!) - it allows for classroom practitioners to be flexible and adaptable. It can, therefore, be used in lessons or as a tutor-time activity.The download includes a PowerPoint Show; if you would like an editable PPT presentation so that you can make your own 'Philosophy Boxes' presentation you will need to download the template here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-the-philosophy-boxes-method-template-for-creating-your-own-philosophy-boxes-lessons-p4c-p4k-11463227A complete selection of Philosophy Boxes lessons can be found here: https://www.tes.com/resources/search/?&q=philosophy+boxes+godwin86You can also save money by purchasing lessons as bundles.
