Ready to use, team-building exercise for the classroom. Discussion and decision making skills.

This is the classic "Lost at Sea," exercise where students are presented with 15 items that they should rank in order of importance on their life raft having been "Lost at Sea." It comes with a power point presentation that details the task, gives tips on completion and shows the correct answers. Also it has a written sheet with the directions on for the students on, an answer sheet for them to complete and an answer sheet for the teacher with rationale for each ranking. It is entirely up to you how you run the exercise but, for me, the most important part is how the students come to a decision and end up agreeing as opposed to getting the correct answers. I have done this and the post-mortem discussion is always the most valuable and where one sees the best responses from students.

Ready to use, GCSE PE, AQA spec. on sposnsorship with Tour de France focus.

(0)
This resource is ready for immediate use and is aimed at GCSE PE students, however it would also be useful in a variety of other subjects. It has the Tour de France as it's main focus, utilising imagery, video and examples to help students understand the importance of sponsorship within sport. The powerpoint prompts debate and asks questions of the class for students to answer both verbally and in their books. Access to the internet will be needed as there are youtube clips to link to. Also included is a worksheet for less able students to complete instead of writing notes and copying out. This allows for differentiation as they will get all the correct information down whilst also doing the work required of them. Any feedback, positive or developmental is greatly appreciated.

Athletics spreadsheet for saving results and running a competition. KS3 boys ready for immediate use

(0)
This is a spreadsheet I used to create greater interest in athletics with my KS3 boys. Simply fill in your students names and info. and then when they complete an athletics event, their score can be recorded and points are allocated based on their performance. The spreadsheet will add up all their points and rank them so the best all-rounder should accumulate the most points IF they complete all the events. Also, a colour is given to some scores: Bronze, Silver or Gold, utilising the scoring system from the ESAA Award Scheme. These 'medals' are hard to achieve in Year 7 but by year 9 there should be a number of students achieving these scores. This is why it's such a good resource to create interest year after year as students attempt to beat their previous scores/times/distances. Any feedback, positive or negative, is greatly appreciated. Please note, for girl's, the standards are different and would need to be inputted into the spreadsheet.
