Christmas: activities. Based on saving Christmas from Santa's evil brother! Fun Xmas activity.

Great fun Christmas activities, complete and ready to use. Lots of engaging and fun activities and a primary activity of building and firing straw air powered rockets in the classroom (no need to go outside). Please don't stop reading! This is not a lesson only for science teachers... A story is woven and as part of the lesson the learners build rockets to save Christmas from Safcut - who is Santa's evil brother. All instructions are included and the lesson teaches the learners almost automatically, this is NOT a lesson only for our friends the science teachers (although it's excellent for them too!) - any of us can use this fun and imaginative lesson. Who is Safcut? What's his plan? Can your class save Christmas? The length of the lesson is very flexible, there are activities you can miss out and on the other hand there is a Christmas cracker based extension. So, the lesson can easily last anywhere between 1/2 hour and 1 and a 1/2 hours depending on your needs. This is definitely not a Christmas quiz, it gets the learners out of their seats, keeps them focused and engaged as they work in teams building and creating. It's a great lesson you can use with all ages from 6 to 16 and it won't go out of date so you can use it for years to come, which makes it excellent value at this price ! As well as being great fun and entertaining it is also educational and it includes: literacy, SMSC, team working skills, cooperation, physical building skills, questions with answers, activities with answers, play ball game, what engineers do, identify parts of a rocket, joke telling etc High quality lesson, great for Science teachers, and all other teachers too!

Can be used for all age groups from 8 to 18 Please consider purchasing this lesson and leaving a positive review, and advertising it to your colleagues using facebook / twitter. Thank you for your help ! PERSONAL UPDATE: I would very much like to thank all the people who bought this fun mega quiz last Xmas. Those of you who did buy it will know that last year I was diagnosed with cancer. I then started a grueling 7 week course of radiotherapy and chemotherapy, and so last year all monies earned from sales of this Christmas mega quiz went to charity, specifically the hospital where I was treated. (I have uploaded to tes the certificate from the hospital which shows that the money did go to this very good cause - type barclayfox charity into the tes resources search engine to find it). At the moment I am recovering from the sharp 3 pointed trident of the cancer itself, the radio and the chemo and so I am not currently teaching full time. Clearly this causes some financial issues for myself and my family and so, regrettably, this year I’m not using this fun pack of activities to raise money for the hospital – although I very much hope that by next Christmas I will be able to return this excellent and fun resource to its ‘for charity’ status ! My treatment is complete and I am assured it has gone as planned, my recovery from the effects of the treatment is well underway and so I hope to be able to share positive news with you in the future. Happy Christmas, and most sincere best wishes of the season to you all !!! :-) Happy teaching, Barclayfox.

This lesson is 1 in a series of 5 that expertly and fully delivers all the points within the NEW KS3 specification SoW on the “light” topic. I find that this powerpoint and the interesting activities keep lower level students engaged during the lesson while allowing differentiation for higher achievers. I’m sure you’ll find it useful. :-) For more lessons designed to meet the new KS3 and KS4 specifications please type Barclayfox into the tes resources search engine to see all my lessons. STARTER Pupils will start the lessons by thinking/working in pairs to solve a picture puzzle and discovering what the lesson is about. After revealing the title and lesson outcomes students self assess against their current understanding of this topic. Next there is a student lead laser light demonstration as they begin to identify the key properties of light. MAIN The slides then move on to lead the students in comparing light and sound. They will delve a little deeper into this by watching a video, discussing it and answering key questions. MAIN Next, the lesson focuses on numeracy questions based around the speed equation and the speed of light. Once this has been completed they can self assess their work using the answers provided. MAIN Students study a slide which shows the sun, an apple and a girl and asks them, how is it that the girl can see the apple? This leads to a discussion and the revealing of how rays of light move and reflect off the apple and into the girl’s eyes so that she can see the apple. MAIN The next activity involves the students grouping objects into luminous or non-luminous. There is differentiation via an activity sheet that can be provided to less able students if required. MAIN Students consider what a shadow is and how it is formed. This leads into a practical where students investigate how the size and position of shadows depends on the position of the light source and the distance to the object that creates the shadow. PLENARY In the plenary activity pupils complete a quiz which will uncover how much they have learnt during the lesson. Students who need further support set themselves homework to enhance learning of today’s lesson. EXTENSION ACTIVITIES These are provided just in case any group requires them. All resources are included in this great lesson, there is nothing for you to do but order the equipment for the demo and class practical (simply hand your technician the printed off kit list.doc) and if necessary photocopy the activity sheet. Thank you for looking, any feedback would be much appreciated :) Lesson 1 in a series of 5. Happy teaching, Barclayfox.
