Battleships (4 and 6-figure) Grid-Reference Activity
SherwenSherwen

Battleships (4 and 6-figure) Grid-Reference Activity

(0)
Through the classic game of Battleships, this activity will help reinforce the concept of (coordinates), specifically 4 and 6 digit grid-references in a fun way. There are two pages to this download. The first contains a 4-digit grid-reference game and a separate 6-digit game. The second page is the same setup, except their are more ships available to place on the board. Instructions: The idea is that each student in a pair gets a copy of the worksheet. They then place the designated ships on their grid using the letters. They may also colour them as well. Tip: Make sure they place all their ships on the grid and that they don’t split them up into pieces. Once the ships have been positioned, the first player will give a grid-reference to ‘bomb’. If they get a direct hit on one of the other players ships, the other player must say so and also tell what type of ship they hit. The first player can then mark on their own sheet whether it was a hit or miss. The first player to destroy all the enemy ships is the winner. My children really loved this game and it really does help them remember how to read grid-references and get quick at doing so! If you enjoy this activity, please kindly leave a review. Thank you.

Code Breaker Challenge - Subtraction

Code Breaker Challenge - Subtraction

(0)
The Challenge This Code Breaker Challenge is made up of 4 challenge sheets, each containing three sets of questions about subtraction as well as an instruction section written in code. There is also a final challenge sheet for obtaining the master lock key. The Setup Ideally, the Code Breaker Challenge requires a box which can be locked with four three digit combination locks and one padlock. See the attached picture as an idea for the setup. It could however be done without this, but wouldn’t be quite as fun for the children. How to Use Fill the box with treasure, for example some sweets and then setup the combinations on each of the locks and lock the box with them and the master lock. Split the class up into four teams and provide each team with one of the challenge sheets. Start a timer of approximately 30 minutes (depending on the ability and age of your class). Each team works together to solve the challenge and tell the teacher the three digit code. If they got it correct, they may open their lock. If not, then they will need to check their answers. Once all four combination locks have been opened, or even after the first team has finished, provide the master lock challenge. If they complete it correctly and within the time, they can then have the master lock key to open the treasure box. Great Fun! The children absolutely love the Code Breaker Challenge and we repeat it at the end of every major maths unit. They really need to work together and check their work carefully if they are to succeed in opening the box and retrieving the treasure within. The documents is fully editable so you can use it as a template to create your own challenges if you like. You can also use it for other subjects as well, but it definitely lends itself to maths the most. I hope you and your children enjoy it as much as mine do! This challenge is one in many. Please take a look at my shop for other units. Thank you.

Code Breaker (Break Out Style Activity) Blank Template
SherwenSherwen

Code Breaker (Break Out Style Activity) Blank Template

(0)
This is a fully editable template for a break out style activity that I call Code Breaker. Pre-requisites: You will need at least 1 numerical combination lock and one regular lock (the master lock) and a box or even multiple boxes that you can use these locks on. I made my own ‘Mystery Box’ which has 4 latches for 4 numerical locks. Then the whole thing is wrapped up with a chain and locked with the master lock - a key padlock. I mostly use it for reviews in maths but it could be adapted for other subjects. There are so many possibilities with this. It does take a little time to setup but the children go wild for it every time! The Setup: a) Write questions which have a numerical answer. b) Decide on which numbers will be part of the code for that numerical lock. For example, add all the answers together and the last three digits of that result are the code. (This is for a three digit numerical lock). c) Change the code on the numbered lock to match. d) Write a short phrase for the master lock using numbers. Usage: a) Fill the box with random treasures. I usually put in some cool erasers and other stationery as well as several packs of crisps or sweets and a whole bunch of fake money. b) Split the class into teams and provide each with a sheet for a lock. Start the timer. c) Children then solve the code and then and open their particular lock. d) Those that solve their lock first can start working on the master lock phrase. After telling you the correct phrase, you can provide the key. *Sometimes I don’t let them get the master lock sheet until after all the other numerical locks have been opened. * Notes: The master lock page has a large image of a lock on it which obscures parts of the code, thus making it a bit more difficult. Also, each letter has four potential numbers to choose from which also adds to the difficulty in cracking a code. You can also make cracking the codes for the numerical locks more difficult by adding more operations on the end. For example, you could use an equation for the letters of each question and then depending on the result you could say that the code is only made up of odd numbers. You can also make questions which don’t have numerical answers by having a simple text to number cypher. The most basic would be to correlate the letters of the alphabet to the number in which they appear. For example, A=1, B=2 etc. If the answer is say, Holland, you could write a short note saying second letter so the children know what to look for and convert into a number. *I hope my explanations are clear, but if not, please feel free to message me or comment. It’s very worthwhile setting this up and once you have the templates filled in, you can reuse them each year as I do. *

Drawing Electric Circuit Diagrams

Drawing Electric Circuit Diagrams

(0)
This worksheet is made up of pictures of 5 real electric circuits. The main idea is for children to look at the photos and then use the provided symbols to draw the corresponding electrical circuit diagrams. The symbols are provided in a table at the beginning of the worksheet and there are questions after each circuit. Questions probe children’s observation, connections with real life, problems with the circuits and ways to improve them. This worksheet can word as a nice introduction or even a follow-up to children building circuits for themselves. They could even build them along side completing the worksheet. I hope this helps your children to draw electrical circuits properly as well as improve their general understanding of electronics.
A Country in Africa Fact File
SherwenSherwen

A Country in Africa Fact File

(0)
The idea for this worksheet is that the children select a country from Africa to research and fill in the geographical facts. For example, population, capital, languages, land area, currency, religion etc. There is also a space for drawing and colouring in the flag and the background of the worksheet is a map of Africa, so children can also draw an arrow and/or colour in their chosen country. The worksheet helps children gain a broader perspective of the world and a chance to compare to their own country. It’s also a great starting point for a more in depth study of a particular country. The document is fully editable so you can change any information you please.

Google Earth - Mystery Puzzle
SherwenSherwen

Google Earth - Mystery Puzzle

(0)
This fun puzzle involves children using Google Earth to find a specific letter of the alphabet. All the letters are made-up from different features on earth such as buildings and rivers. Each coordinate leads to a different letter. Once the children have recorded the letter, they can zoom out to find out and record what country it is in. Once they have all the letters, they have to rearrange them to make up the mystery word. You can see all the answers by selecting the text in both the country and letter columns and changing the text colour. They are hidden in plain sight, so don’t forget to remove them if you are setting this as a document online. This could either work as an individual competition - see who can find all the places in the quickest time. Or it could be done as a collective effort - the whole class working to find the different places before the time runs out. Children and adults alike really enjoy this activity! Extension ideas: a) Have the children find their own letters around the world, or for more difficulty, in their local area. b) Use the snipping or Print Screen (PrtSc) tool to copy images of letters and spell out a name or even a phrase.
