Descriptive Writing - Rated Outstanding: Unconventional, New and Unique: A Magical Lesson of Wonder

If you are interested in something that is a different yet meaningful cross-curricula learning experience with elements of: wonder, awe, descriptive writing, poetry, philosophy, science, nature, geography, team work, art, appreciation of nature and so much more, then this is for you. This lesson is called the magical lesson of wonder because that is the desired outcome. A cynic may think that this is just observing nature through microscopes but it is so much more than that in part due to the fascinating web resource used for the lesson and the inspirational writing that is produced by all the children who participate. Suitable for any age or KS (but designed for KS2 or KS1) as the element of wonder and magic is something that never tires. You will need microscopes or magnifying glass (USB microscopes ideally) and access to objects from nature or a selection you provide. Other teachers have used this for their performance management observations and got outstanding too - just read the reviews! This is a hidden gem of TES that is beyond conventional categorisation - so why not treat your class to it today? Turn down the lights, roll down the blinds, play the music and begin the magical lesson of wonder.
