Endangered species plant pots

Endangered species plant pots

This creative and practical activity is aimed at primary school children, who will require the help of an adult for scissor use. Children will select an endangered species from Arkive.org, to recreate in plant pot form. They must read about the habitat where the animal lives and recreate this using another plastic pot as a drip tray for excess water. The students will then fill the pots with soil and plant their seeds. As well as teaching students about the environments in which endangered species live, the importance of reusing or recycling plastic can also be highlighted throughout, as an additional educational element. Students can also learn about the life cycle of plants while their seeds grow into seedlings, then fully grown plants. Find out more about endangered species: arkive.org/endangered-species/ Find out more about plastics and their effect on the environment: www.arkive.org/c/marine-plastics Find out more about plants: arkive.org/education/teaching-resources-7-11#resourcePlants

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Wordsearch  Cartoon Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Wordsearch Cartoon Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'. 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.
