Y3/4 Polar Environments - Locate the Coldest Places and Compare to Others

Y3/4 Polar Environments - Locate the Coldest Places and Compare to Others

This is a Y3/4 topic (geography) lesson on polar environments. The lesson teaches pupils how we measure temperature, how the celcius scale works and what temperatures you would typically expect to record in given scenarios. If your school has access to a class set of thermometers, you could add an extra section where pupils measure temperatures around the classroom/school premises. The main activity involves researching the winter and summer average highs/lows in different parts of the world, including one location each in the Arctic and Antarctic. It is intended that pupils work in mixed ability pairs and they will need an ipad and an atlas in each pair.

Rivers and the Water Cycle 'WOW'/'Launch'/Topic Introduction day Y3/4 - ENTIRE DAY'S RESOURCING!

Rivers and the Water Cycle 'WOW'/'Launch'/Topic Introduction day Y3/4 - ENTIRE DAY'S RESOURCING!

This is a topic introduction day (‘wow’ day/‘launch’ day) for a Y3 or 4 class about to start a topic on rivers and the water cycle. The morning involves lots of new learning - including an introduction to the key content of the topic. There are two practical experiments (obviously you will need to source the items for these beforehand) - one a simple evaporation/condensation demonstration and the other is the well-known ‘shaving foam cloud’ experiment! The afternoon is more art/music based, featuring a look at the inspiration French impressionists took from rivers/water and the inspiration many classical composers took from this topic. Finally, if you have a copy of Wind in the Willows to hand, this is an ideal topic-themed way to round the day off. Alternatively, look up the 1983 animated version on YouTube!

Why is Las Vegas so thirsty? (L1)

Why is Las Vegas so thirsty? (L1)

This is a lesson that I have created for a unit titled ‘Impossible places’. The lesson starts with allowing students to guess what the lesson is about through various clues followed by objectives. The students then locate Las Vegas and outline some of its key features. The lesson is then divided in to two sections, physical and human causes for Las Vegas’ water shortage involving some climate graph work. A very enjoyable lesson to teach!
