Seating plan templates

Seating plan templates

(0)
These are intended to be viewed as the students see the room, so they’re suitable to display on the screen / whiteboard. They’re in a dyslexia friendly font and should be easy to edit to suit your requirements. Each table or group can be edited (colour etc.) for carousel / differentiation purposes. It’s best to keep a master copy of the template you use and duplicate it as needed. To duplicate a slide, simply right click on it and click ‘duplicate slide’. The final slide is a ‘build you own’ template. Drag and drop from the units provided, copy and paste where necessary to suit your own classroom layout. These are fully editable. If you have any comments then please let us know via Facebook, Twitter or e-mail.
Plenary phones

Plenary phones

(0)
Several phones/tablets to use in your teaching. These are fully editable and in a range of sizes. They’re great as a plenary or as part of a lesson. There are many ways to use these. They’re ideal for plenary activities where students can show their understanding. Choose a phone style and edit accordingly. Suggestions include: Students pass the phone between groups of 2,3,4 and fill in the messages to develop a discussion about their learning. Teacher displays a question / edits the phone before printing to have the question on the screen, students answer. Students could tweet their answer / post to some kind of social media on the blank phone. Students write their own question and find somebody else in the class to answer it for them. Students can draw a diagram / drawing to represent their learning (included). Stick into their books to show progress / understanding. Use to prompt discussion / students read their replies out. Use Blooms question stems to differentiate. These are full editable. If you have a great idea for the phones then let us know and we’ll add it to this resource.

Geography - Natural Hazards - Earthquakes - Mercalli Scale drawing activity

(0)
A whole lesson which will introduce students to the Mercalli scale, teach them the characteristics of each level and allow them to demonstrate their understanding in several different ways. Whole lesson: Starter/plenary with ‘Hinge’ element to show progress / demonstrate understanding. Photo analysis Group activity Varied individual activities Peer assessment Teacher notes & plan Lesson evaluation The main aim is… For students to create an appropriate drawing for each level of the Mercalli scale, based on the descriptions. For students to learn the main levels of the Mercalli scale. For students to recognise how the scale changes between impacts on humans and impacts on the build environment. To use / apply the Mercalli scale. Key ideas and content… The Mercalli scale has 12 levels. The Mercalli scale measures the effects of an earthquake (and not the strength / energy like the Richter scale). It is based on visual observations, and is split between effects felt by people and effects on the build environment. To differentiate… Help lower ability students by modelling some examples. Underline the key terms in each description, and focus the drawings on these. Encourage the use of thought bubbles and speech bubbles to add more depth and detail to the drawings. Complete the drawing activity first, and then ask more able students to highlight main differences between each level. To extend… Play a Pictionary type game. Give the student a level from the scale which they then draw on the board. The class must then decide which level it is. To assess… Peer assessment included. Check drawings for features unique to each level of the scale. Use the Pictionary type game as a whole class assessment. The photo analysis is intended as a Hinge for the learning, they come back to the original photo analysis and show / demonstrate their learning by filling in the post-it notes.
