Parts of an Apple

Parts of an Apple

Montessori 3-Part Cards for Parts of an Apple Suggested by a teacher client, I created the Parts of an Apple cards for your Botany area. There are actually two sets of cards in this file. One set features the common terms for the parts that the child may already be familiar. The second set features the scientific nomenclatures. You will also receive cards with all of the nomenclatures written in cursive. If you use cursive in your classroom, the children can match the cursive label to the proper cards to help with writing. Finally, I have included two different types of apple illustrations for booklet making… The first is black and white line, but does not match the photo. However, it may be easier for the children to discenrn the parts. The second is the grayscale photo that I used for the cards.

Dartmoor UK National Park Wordsearch Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Geography Cover

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet of keywords on the theme of ‘Dartmoor National Park’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

The Great Big Food Cycle Event

The Great Big Food Cycle Event

The Great Big Food Cycle Event is for groups of 45-60 pupils from P6-S1 and uses practical activity to explain the different aspects of the food cycle, their environmental impacts and how we can make more sustainable food choices. 7 stations are set up using the activity resources which include full instruction and equipment lists; icons for each station and additional materials can be found in display and poster resources. There are a large number of additional resources required such as soil, seeds, empty packaging, wrappers, unavoidable waste items, worms, sand etc. and the event requires a some preparation. Red worms can be ordered from the internet or found in most long-standing, soil contact compost heaps. The large group of students is split into 7 groups of appropriate numbers and each student issued with a booklet (in display and poster resources) that should be filled in as they move around the stations. Each group should visit each station for 15-20 minutes before moving round the room, depending on time availability. The Smoothie Bike station can be adapted to use a regular blender, though if a smoothie bike is available to hire locally it is worth the experience. The Incredible Inedibles station can be adapted to use any of the waste products listed in the activity appendix in a practical manner. While the message of the event is best delivered as a whole, each activity is suitable to deliver individually with a small student group. Previous students have shown a high level of engagement and increased appreciation for the impacts associated with the food cycle. At the end of the event, ideal give-aways to issue to the students include; seed potatoes and potato grow bags, packets of seeds, pasta portioners etc. The Great Big Food Cycle Event was conceived by Belville Community Garden in Inverclyde Scotland, as part of their Climate Challenge Funded project ‘Connecting Food growing Across Inverclyde’, which aimed to tackle community carbon emissions arising from our food purchasing and wastage habits.

Just as an aside, my first set of houseplant cards were made from four copies of a book on houseplants. I cut the pictures out, rubber cemented them onto index cards and hand wrote the labels. That was long before personal computers and the internet! Those cards lasted a very long time and I’m sure I have a few left somewhere, but I had a much better time making these. Do be careful about potentially poisonous houseplants. Thanks so much for considering my work. Mary
