Shackleton and the Endurance - Keynote

Shackleton and the Endurance - Keynote

Keynote is presentation software similar to Powerpoint that is produced by Apple Computer and can be used on a Mac or iPad. Be aware that this is the latest version (2014). Please download the preview if you are unsure if it will work on your computer. This lesson is an overview of the story of Ernest Shackleton and the crew of the Endurance during their two years trapped in the wilderness of the Antarctic. The story is told with the aid of a timeline of the expedition in the medium of a Keynote - similar to a Powerpoint presentation but a lot more versatile! There is a need in literature and social studies classes to evaluate content presented in diverse media and formats including visually and aurally. This Keynote Presentation is an engaging way of reaching this standard. The lesson contains; 1. A Keynote which contains 21 slides that tell the story visually, with humorous speech bubbles, and full narration. There is also a short quiz and the last part contains a short online video of a journal entry from a fictional member of the crew. The Keynote can be used by a teacher using a computer or iPad connected to a TV, electronic blackboard or projector. Alternatively, it can be used directly on student's iPads as a self study resource similar to an e-book. 2. A pdf file of materials to use with students, including a one page text outlining the story as well as learning materials for new vocabulary, listening and reading comprehension quizzes and a journal writing exercise. 3. A full set of teachers notes and explanation on how to use the Keynote along with a contact e.mail for enquiries. If you have any questions about using Keynote, please feel free to contact me through TES. An alternative version of this product using a 'Prezi' can be found on my store here; Ernest Shackleton Prezi

Reading, Writimg and Colouring Workbook

Reading, Writimg and Colouring Workbook

Do you have students with a range of abilities in your class? This is a purposeful activity that could be used for teaching the names of colours, clothing and some body parts. The worksheets could be used for the whole class or by those who quickly complete their given work. There are two types of worksheet. The first involves reading the given specific colours to be used when colouring particular parts of the picture of either a girl or a boy. The second worksheet allows the student to choose the colours to be used then write the colour word as a sentence completion task. If students are encouraged to use as many colours as possible, they will then be writing the words for the maximum number of colours. In total there are 24 worksheets. The use of colouring pencils or felt tips rather than crayons is suggested as there is some fine detail which might be difficult to accurately complete if using crayons. Reading, writing, the development of fine motor skills and increasing unknown English vocabulary are enabled by completing the worksheets. The vocabulary includes : pinafore, jumper, trousers, laces, shoes, pocket, collar, top, jacket, button, clasp, hair, skin, eyes, name, bow, socks, sweatshirt, T shirt, shirt, cardigan, dress, skirt, heart, stripe, hairband and belt A colour reference sheet is provided for use when writing the colour words if the correct spelling is unknown. A front cover is also included and can be used if the worksheets are being made into a booklet. This resource is suitable for all students, including those who are learning English as an Additional Language.

Present and Past Tense Irregular Verb game

Present and Past Tense Irregular Verb game

The objective of the game is for players to become familiar with past and present tense irregular verbs. The winner of the game will have matched up the most present and past tense verbs. It is a mixture of knowledge, luck and good memory skills. This resource contains two files. A word document (so that it can be edited if necessary) and a pdf document. 1. Print out the pages with the irregular verbs on them. (laminate to preserve if you want) 2. Keep piles separated (past tense verbs are underlined). 3. Have learners work in pairs or groups 4. Place the present tense verbs face down spread out in one area and the past tense verbs in another area. (Keeping them in rows and columns is best). 5. Player 1 turns over one card from the present tense and then tries to find the matching verb from the past tense area. 6. If a match is not made, they turn the cards back over and the next person has their turn. 7. When a match is made the learner keeps the two cards. 8. The winner is the player with the most cards at the end of the game. 9. Optional – learners to then make up sentences with the verbs for extra points.
