Ancient Sumer: Design an Instrument

Ancient Sumer: Design an Instrument

Children will participate in a short study of the importance of music in Ancient Sumer as well as the instruments used. Aligning with the 2014 National Curriculum of England’s Key Stage 2 History objective of studying one of the first civilisations, children will have opportunities to look at instruments uncovered by archaeologists studying Ancient Sumer. They will then learn about the science of sound before designing, making and evaluating their own instruments. A digital copy of the file for editing and sharing on Google Classrooms and Seesaw is available with download. More on Ancient Sumer coming soon!

Teams & Athletes: Sports Equipment Design (Explanation Text and Persuasive Text BUNDLE)

Teams & Athletes: Sports Equipment Design (Explanation Text and Persuasive Text BUNDLE)

Great to tie in with the 2018 Olympic Games! Children will look at how sports equipment has changed over time before making a modification of their own. Children will follow the DT process outlined in the 2014 National Curriculum of England, designing their own prototype, making their prototype, and then participating in peer- and self- evaluation of their prototype. When finished the design process, there are also resources included for writing an explanation text (of how their sports equipment has changed over time or how their new sports equipment modifications will work); and writing a persuasive text including an advert about their product. A link to digital files for editing and sharing on Google Classroom or Seesaw is available with download. ------------ You might also like: Teams & Athletes: Design a Team Jersey (with Explanation Text) Teams & Athletes: Design a Team Jersey (with Explanation Text)

STEAM: Middle School NGSS LS Save the Cacao Plant, Engeerin: Invent a Candy Bar, Art: Wrapper Design

STEAM: Middle School NGSS LS Save the Cacao Plant, Engeerin: Invent a Candy Bar, Art: Wrapper Design

This is a STEAM unit for middle school science that contains template pages for a "Save the Cacao Plant (NGSS LS3.A, 3.B, 2-4), an engineering design process to invent a candy bar and an art project to create a candy wrapper based on the science of color in marketing. This STEAM unit contains templates for three distinct, integrated projects. The first is science - where students will use the NGSS scientific method to read research (two pages included as well as vetted links to more research) and work to save chocolate from extinction. There is also a PowerPoint to help demonstrate how the scientific method process works - with differentiated student templates for students to follow along. In the second section, students are engineers and their task is to use the engineering design process to invent a candy bar. In the last project, students use the psychology of color to create a candy bar wrapper. This section contains a PowerPoint on the Psychology of Color. All three projects/labs can be done individually or in groups. This is an engaging way to teach NGSS - as it uses topics students can relate to. • NGSS Save the Cacao Plant - Middle School Standards LS3.A, LS3.B, developing and using models, LS2.4. • NGSS Engineering: Middle School ET-S1.1 and ET-S1.2 • National Art Standards - Anchor Standard - 2.3.7A for middle school The student pages are template based and include a lesson on the scientific method NGSS-style. This packet contains: • 41-page handbook with teacher pages • A ten-page PowerPoint on the NGSS scientific method • A 20-page PowerPoint on "The Science of Color" • Plus, various links to other research sites
