Home Study - Dorset Coast - A Geography Project

(0)
This is a Power Point Presentation about Poole, Dorset and the Jurrasic Coast. Within the commentary boxes each slide offers fairly simple writing or sketching challenges for students from Year 6 through to GCSE level. The study is presented in such a way that individual students can work through each challenge from home on a PC or lap top. The geographical skills involve drawing of maps, field sketches and analytical writing that will give each student familiarity with common geographical terminology. Working for between 1 and 2 hours per day, this project should last for about 7 session but may last up to 10 one hour sessions in total. There is potential for extension work using the many images that lend themselves to field sketch drawings. This resource is offered at a minimum price of £3 and all income will be forwarded to homeless charities in 2021. It is also offered at this time especially for parents and teachers who are providing children at home with appropriate educational challenges during the Covid crisis.
Adolf Hitler - His Early Years - 1889 to 1918

Adolf Hitler - His Early Years - 1889 to 1918

(0)
This Powerpoint Presentation is specifically targeting 13 to 16 year old students of History. There are 22 slides with a selection of appropriate pictures, fact files and maps included. It is an introductory part of a wider document about “The Development of a Dictatorship – Adolf Hitler”. The resource documents the early years of Hitler up to the end of World War One and it looks more closely at the experiences that shaped his life. Who and what influenced him as he was growing up in Austria and how did being part of an Infantry Regiment in WW1 mould his character. The critical question is asked, how and why did Hitler take his chosen path to infamy? In terms of historical understanding, many National Curriculum prerequisites have been covered and include evidence, continuity, change, cause and effect, perspectives, empathy, significance and contestability. However in short, the most important content is evidence of how and why Adolf Hitler turned into a cruel demagogue. A key element in the presentation is the chronological nature of the study. The World War 1 years also offer an ideal opportunity to learn more about the advances in technology. There are 22 slides with images that are followed by suggested challenges for students to complete. The slides containing maps are available for printing and use in lessons. Slide 25 offers suggested ways in which the presentation can be managed in the classroom. Slide 26 to 38 contains sets of quiz questions that are differentiated for a wide range of abilities. Slide 39 offers writing challenges that are aimed at helping 13 year old students to extend their writing skills from a basic level to advanced levels in preparation for higher examination targets in the future. Slides 40 to 45 are script notes for use by students who can take part in the presentation if directed by the teacher. This unit of work is ideal for between 3 and 6 hours of commitment in the classroom and possibly for use as a homework challenge.

World War One From Start to Finish.

Children at Home can learn about the time line of events during WW1. Teachers can offer this resource to children who are studying WW1. Younger students may need to watch alongside their parents. What is included … 2 Presentations, 4 Quiz Challenges and information pages. and how to use this resource: This resource can be used for students between the ages of 9 and 16 years. It contains 2 power point presentations that cover the first and second half of WW1 in a chronological continuum. Each presentation has 25 slides with detailed notes included below. The commentary is most suitable for 14 to 16 year old History students but it can be easily adapted for children who are 10 to 13 years of age. Both presentations are offered as thumbnail and note pages that can be printed and used as revision sheets for examination students who are studying WW1. Other pages on offer include two relatively easy quiz pages with 25 questions for all age groups and two picture quizzes with ten related images (The quizzes can be attempted** with or without** the fact sheets). Finally there is a page with 25 short writing projects that are offered as challenges for developing historical writing in preparation for examinations. How to Use the Power Point Presentations: Part 1 - Show as a brief introduction for various topics about WW1. The presentation can be concluded by an easy quiz (using the resource to find the answers). Testing from memory - Students can mark their own so that they can note facts and concepts that they did not learn during the presentation. The quiz pages can act as a script for the main discussion topics whilst the presentation is being given. The second presentation can be used in the same way. Individual slides can be used as lesson starters for initial discussion and then lead into writing challenges. I envisage this resource being used for perhaps up to 6 lessons with 9 to 12 year old children. Examination students might use this resource as a foundation for studying all aspects of WW1. The picture quizzes can be used as standalone challenges using the information sheets or as an internet challenge. Another option would be to use certain pages as Homework material. Target groups are … GCSE History and Key Stage 2 and 3 studies.

HOME STUDIES  - NINE USA CITIES

HOME STUDIES - NINE USA CITIES

(0)
All 2021 income on this resource will go to Homeless Charities. Learn at school or at home about USA Cities. This presentation can be used for children between the ages of 9 and sixteen. There are fifty five slides and thirty nine pages of additional resource materials. I have selected the following cities because of their contrasting site, situation and geographical locations. They are: Boston, New York, Washington DC, Chicago, Detroit, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco and New Orleans. This selection of cities offers extended studies in both Physical and Human Geography. Included in the slide notes and the resource file are suggested work challenges involving on line work, historical links, geographical writing skills, discussions and other map drawing exercises. The presentation can be targeted at nine and ten year old students but it will be necessary to use the shortened version of the script. Children between the age of eleven and fourteen should be able to cope well with most of the challenges. Key Stage 4 (fourteen to sixteen years) students involved in examinations will be able to link this resource with a large range of the exam topics. Some examples include: Boston and New York - Settlements, site, situation and geographical location. New Orleans - Flooding, Mississippi Drainage Basin, River features including deltas. Detroit - Industrial and population change. Chicago and Detroit - Location, Waterways and Trade, Glaciation and the Great Lakes. Los Angeles and San Francisco - Environmental Hazards and Tourism. Las Vegas - Desert environment, Water resources and the Entertainment Industry. Washington DC - Capital City, history, location, population, government and tourism. There are several IT challenges on offer that involve constructing a quiz word grid, following the course of the River Colorado by using on line maps, developing knowledge of site, situation and geographical location with a starting point in Downtown Chicago. The whole project is aimed at developing a wide range of geographical knowledge along with IT skills and the opportunity to improve writing techniques in preparation for higher level studies. I personally would use this resource for Year 9 groups in preparation for Key Stage 4 Geography. The History content makes it just that little bit more interesting.

Home Study - Geographical Project based on The Yorkshire Dales National Park

(0)
**Home Studies - 2021. All income for this resource will go to homeless charities. ** I believe that this project is perfect for Key Stage 2 and 3. The children will reap the benefits in their geographical studies when they progress to examination level in Key Stage 4. The Project offers an insight into the characteristics of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and it encompasses a taste of the History and the Geography of this diverse area of Northern England. There is a mix of written material, diagrams, maps challenges and photographs. The main target area is the subject of Humanities but in particular it is best suited for studies in Geography, Travel and Tourism and some aspects of History. Throughout this resource there is an offering of tasks for students to attempt. These challenges involve discussion, descriptive and analytical writing, drawing skills, numerical assimilation and all aspects of the requirements for satisfactory coverage of the National Curriculum in the UK. Sub topics include: Glaciation, Geology, Industrial Roots, Roads and Railways, Town and Countryside, Limestone Scenery, Farming, Mapwork Skills and a few others. In total there is enough work for at least 10 lessons that will encompass the full range of geographical skills within the one project. I believe that this resource would be best suited for children between the ages of 10 and 16 years and it can be adapted for a wide range of abilities. The work offered to the children can be carried out in the classroom and some sessions could make use of the IT room in order to extend the project. I would start by using an atlas and looking at its worldwide location as part of the bigger picture and then zoom in on its site and situation within the UK National Parks organisation. At this point I would introduce the children to one of the maps on offer within the project (Page 25). From this point onward the project can make full use of the 61 page resource document. I hope you enjoy studying this wonderful part of Northern England as much as I have both on the ground and under the ground over the past 35 years.

Throughout this resource there is an offering of challenges and tasks for students to attempt.

It is suitable for students with a wide range of abilities from the age of 10 to 16 years. I would introduce this project by looking back at the history of the National Parks. My second focus would be the wider pattern of parks within the USA and then lead into the project which is based specifically on The North Yorkshire National Park in the United Kingdom.
Story & Short Drama Sketch - Diego the Parrot

Story & Short Drama Sketch - Diego the Parrot

(0)
Advice and a Warning … Please note that this play makes use of sound effects like irate animals, a rather mad parrot and a deaf old lady who breaks wind!! If you use this resource, I recommend using it in the final lesson of the day. It is not for use by teachers who are faint hearted or do not have a good rapport with their students. Read on if you are interested. This is both a short story and a short play about Diego the Parrot. The title of the play is “My Neighbour Has A Parrot”. I used to enjoy interactive lessons with my students and in partnership with my classes we used to produce plays, drama sketches and pantomimes. These were the most memorable experiences in my career as a teacher. This resource targets English and Drama or it can be used as a platform for a short stage production. Acting out plays has always been a winner for me. There are lots of sound effects included in this production and it affords the opportunity to have lots of fun with your students. As a play it would last between 10 and 15 minutes. The main characters in this production could include a narrator, old man, old lady, parrot and possibly a sound effects expert! I would target this resource at Key Stage 2 and 3 (Ages 8 to 14 year old). Initially I would read the story to the class (with the sound effects) and then develop the production as a whole class exercise and then, perhaps, in groups of between 4 and 5 children. The main aim of this classroom activity is 1) Building inner confidence and 2) Having fun in the classroom. Further developments can involve creative writing about Diego the parrot. One in particular that I have used in the past would be “Diego and the Ventriloquist”. Each child can have a go at performing and writing a small individual sketch for fun. A toy parrot strapped to the shoulder would be a useful extra. I hope you have fun with this resource. My shop supports the Berwick Youth Project. This charity helps to keep young people safe and tries to prevent them from ending up on the streets or homeless.

Adolf Hitler - 1889 to 1918 (His Early Years & WW1)

(0)
Adolf Hitler 1889 to 1918 – His Early Years and WW1 - This resource comes in the form of a fact file and a selection of classroom exercises that are aimed at 13 to 16 year old students of 20th Century History. In addition to this there is a small section (images) that would be suitable for the PSHE programme especially in the month of November. The material in this 21 page resource documents the birth of Adolf Hitler through to the conclusion of WW1. It contains written information, pictures, maps, quiz questions and research challenges. The research challenges are ideal for perhaps two internet sessions where students need to search for extra information. The contents are best suited for Key Stage 3 and students in Key Stage 4 preparing for History examinations, particularly the topics “The Rise of Adolf Hitler”, “Development of a Dictatorship” and “The Events of WW1”. The resource materials offered should satisfy between 4 and 8 hours of work in the classroom. As an alternative it may also be offered as a home research project in preparation for GCSE examinations. This resource can be linked and used alongside - Adolf Hitler - Early Years (Powerpoint Presentation created by this same author).

Reign of the Tudors - A Timeline of Events.

(0)
This resource is a Tudor timeline covering the main people and events that took place between 1485 and 1603. It is ideal for teachers delivering information about the reign of the Tudors. The resource covers a little more than 118 years of History and would be an ideal support for teachers of History in both the Primary and Secondary sectors. Included are 90 images of people, documents, castles, maps, battles and many other connected visual aids that can support the delivery of History lessons. Throughout this year (2020 - 2021) all of my resources support homeless charities and I hope that with your help we can give a few people on the streets much needed support in getting their lives back on track. Good luck in your Schools and Colleges this coming year 2020 - 2021. Ian Patterson (IanPCostaDelSol).

Salvation Army (Homeless Charity) Quiz + 10 Extra Free (Nos. 11 to 20).

(0)
This Salvation Army Charity Quiz targets children between the ages of 10 and 16 years but may also be suitable as a pub quiz. The Charity quiz includes general knowledge questions, pictures and a few puzzles. The file also includes 10 free general knowledge quizzes also targetting young school students. For a small donation of £2 toward the Salvation Army Homeless Charity, I hope that with your help we can make a difference to a few people who have fallen on difficult times. Perhaps some of the Primary Schools out there might consider running a Family Charity Quiz Social Evening using this resource when the World gets back to some kind of social normality. Thank you for your support. Ian Patterson (August 2020).
PTA-QUIZ NIGHT RESOURCE
IanPCostaDelSolIanPCostaDelSol

PTA-QUIZ NIGHT RESOURCE

(0)
PTA - QUIZ NIGHT RESOURCE. This resource would be ideal for an organiser of a PTA social evening and targets both the Primary and Secondary sector. In my opinion it is perfect for a family night out courtesy of the PTA. I am adding an extra resource with higher level quiz material about WW1. This includes 4 quizzes and 2 power point presentations about WW1, worth £3 in my TES Shop (Times Educational Supplement). My TES shop can be found on a TES search with “IanPCostaDelSol”. All my resources will support charity this year and beyond. In total there are at least 650 quiz questions and all with answers and fact sheets to support the content. Content includes: General knowledge, people, places, History, Geography and a host of other topics, too many to mention. The target age group was 9 to 16 but I am sure they would be ideal for a family quiz night in a school hall. More detail about the offer follows: 2020 has been a challenging year and perhaps when we get to 2021 the Schools and Colleges will get back to having social functions in support of all of the young people in the UK and around the World. This resource is everything in the way of quizzes that I have created over the last 6 months. I offered them free of charge during the Covid crisis specifically for home learning. This time I ask that you donate £2 for my Homeless Charity Appeal so that you may download this sizeable resource. My chosen charities include Crisis, Salvation Army Homeless Fund and the Berwick Project. The latter helps keep young people off the streets and gives the children much needed support, hope and ambition for their future.

Poole and Dorset - A Fieldwork Project About The Service Industry, Tourism & Other Associated Topics

(0)
This resource is aimed at giving Geography, Travel and Tourism and Business Studies students from Years 9 through to 11 the experience of handling data related to service industries. The work serves to satisfy the type of work associated with field studies and research. The data is presented on a spreadsheet that highlights the Service Industry of Poole in Dorset. Using the information, students will be able to propose a hypothesis and then attempt to prove or refute the chosen statement. Within the folder there is a powerpoint presentation that can be used independently as a collection of Geography topics about the English County of Dorset. Specifically it addresses the concepts of Site, Situation and Function of a settlement. The powerpoint presentation alone can be used to support up to 10 contrasting lessons. The photographs can be used for introductions to a number of Human and Physical Geography topics including the following specifics and links: Poole Port, Service Industry, Tourism, Shopping Streets, Spreadsheet statistics, Bays and Headlands, Lulworth Cove, Lulworth Village, Swanage Bay, Groynes, Stair Hole, Durdle Door, Corfe Castle, Dorset Geology, Settlements, Site, Situation, Function and finally a number of excellent photographs that can be converted to field sketch diagrams.

Germany 1918 to 1933-The Rise & Fall of the Weimar Republic (A 2 lesson Powerpoint Presentation)

(0)
This resource is a two lesson powerpoint presentation that tracks the developments of the Weimar Republic from its conception (1918) to its final demise (1933). In particular it features the political rise of Adolf Hitler from Lance Corporal to Fuhrer. It takes the form of a timeline of events and the frames can be reduced to create a pack of 48 revision cards. This presentation is ideal for students of History between the ages of 14 and 16. Frames 52 and 53 can be printed for students to compile brief notes on the two presentations. This is a quick fix exercise to help students to put the key events of the Weimar Republic into chronological order. All abilities can learn from the images and discussions inspired by this resource.
