A Harvest Story

A Harvest Story

This PDF File and presentation will be very useful to KS1 as an assembly idea or as a class story linked to fables as there is a moral in the story. The two characters in the story are a spider and a little bug, the setting is in a cornfield. The bug warns the spider that the farmer will be coming soon to gather the crop. I won't tell you the rest as I don't want to spoil it for you! The story is adapted from one I read and I have rewritten it myself in child friendly vocabulary. There are a set of discussion questions which will be good for talking and listening sessions after the children have either read or heard the story.

100 Question PowerPoint Biology Quiz and Amazing Biology Facts Presentation

This resource a highly visual, fully editable and interactive, 100 question biology quiz and 100 amazing biology facts. These are ideal resources for biology week. Quiz This is a 100 question quiz with varying degrees of challenge. It can be administered in a variety of ways - to individuals or teams. The answers can be found by clicking on the question mark image on each slide. Answers can be given either as you go through the quiz or at the end.

How many pairs of chromosomes are in found in most humans? 8. What is the largest internal organ of the human body? This resource contains a highly visual, fully editable and interactive PowerPoint on 100 amazing biology facts. Sample facts: 1. The human mouth produces 1 litre (1.8 pints) of saliva each day. In a lifetime, the average person produces about 28413 litres of saliva; enough to fill two swimming pools! 2. Our eyes are always the same size from birth. 3. If all the DNA in a human body is stretched out, it would reach to the moon 6,000 times. 4. The power generated by our brain when we are awake is enough to light up a bulb? 5.
