This Alien message decoding activity works well as a lead in to the PPT.
Create messages for your students written in alien code and print them out instantly.
Alien message decoding can be a fantastic activity to engage students with a topic, or to introduce a task. This tool will allow you to type in any message in any (roman alphabet) language, and print out the message in alien code, along with a key.
I love to leave these messages for students to find and watch the children's excitement as they try and decode.
Lesson objective :Begin a poster containing facts about Australia.
This is a class designed to lead students to create a fact sheet about Australia, which will then be adapted to be a non-fiction text later.
It begins with True/False questions with fun facts. This then changes to Fact/Fiction.
Students then do a pair reading activity to find out some more facts.
They then set to work on their posters about Australia.
In a 45 minute class, they will just have time to begin the posters, so they could finish it for homework or in the next class.
Communicative or individual activity including 3 different sheets of Alien code, the answer key, and a key to help students with the decoding.
3 sets of Alien code with a key. Leave the code or messages in a 'space ship' for students to find and let them find the other part elsewhere or simply explain that you 'found these strange messages at home'. Students either communicate to decode the messages or work individually, depending what you want them to do the activity for.
Sheet 1 are motivational 'fortune cookie' style messages.
Sheet 2 include a treasure hunt based on 5 clues. Sufficiently generic to work in any school.
Sheet 3 is a letter from the aliens requesting help. Students decode the message and then the teacher produces a list of whatever the students need to do in order to help them (for example, complete their maths homework, or find the answer to a difficult question.).
The children (grades 2-8) I've done this activity with have loved it!
