A collection of photos of shadows I have come across on my adventures around Great Britain. I originally put this collection together for my students for our primary science sessions, and will add to it as I row my boat around the coast of Great Britain. Ideal for students to use in their projects and presentations. Please leave me a review and I will send you any other resource of your choice for free (contact me: office@oceansproject.com).

Japanese Gardens Literature & Composition

Japanese Gardens Literature & Composition

Here are six pieces of writing about Japanese Gardens, and six different writing assignments to go with them! Themes include: a general description, a master plans a garden, Haiku about gardens, three types of Japanese garden, ‘cleaning’ a tea garden, and Zen stone gardens. Writing assignments vary – from describing a beautiful place to writing a Haiku about nature, from planning sentences in your mind to summarizing what you’ve learned about stones in Zen gardens. An image of a Japanese painting of a miniature garden in a bowl is included to be used as decoration on the student’s notebook. Literature & Composition collections are suitable for students who are ready to read and study different types of literature in small quantities. For example, instead of an entire novel or scholarly work, a small sample of each (which can stand on its own) will be presented. This way, the intermediate student has an opportunity to stretch their reading abilities without being discouraged. Each book contains six different writing samples that share a common theme. The writing assignments vary in length and are intended to inspire the student to try writing in different forms and styles.
