Representing Data: choosing the best graph

Representing Data: choosing the best graph

(13)
Maths Activity suitable for KS3 and KS4. Just because Excel can create a graph, it does not mean it is the right graph to use. This lesson shows students how to choose the right graph for the right situation and exercises for developing those skills. If you are kind then you can let students use the Excel file.
Secret Body Language Exercise

Secret Body Language Exercise

In this exercise two people have to say the same script, but try through body-language to convey different messages. Hilarious and really shows how much people communicate through non-verbal communication.
Revision Techniques (Jedi Mind Tricks)

Revision Techniques (Jedi Mind Tricks)

(58)
This little lesson was designed to show students different ways that they could revise for exams. As well as the main lesson it also includes a Diamond 9 which could be used as an extension or follow up. There is also an assembly version, which the link takes you to. I've also included a link to a blank lesson plan, because with the template each plan took about 15 minutes to do and could be useful for teacher trainees.

Design a Game Cover

This package has everything you need to teach how to make a CD / DVD / Games Design lesson. This was originally done as part of ICT, but crosses over nicely into Design & Technology or Art. It CAN be done without PCs. There is one Publisher file, but if you don't have it then use the PDF alternative file.

Mindmap of all the English Tenses

Mindmap of all the English Tenses

(29)
I really just put this together to show off just how capable the Mind Mapping Software could be, but I am sure it must be useful for showing tenses. It was originally part of a series of lessons on learning 2 learn and how Mindmaps could be used to help with revision. The resource uses shortened English, because when I made the original materials I was teaching speaking rather than formal written documents. (For the British Council in Kuala Lumpur)

Factors of Production

Factors of Production

This gorgeous introduction to the factors of production shows you in detail how Economics divides Labour, Land, Capital & Enterprise. The video shows the factors of production in a quite nostalgic way, which my students really enjoyed spotting the references to. (If you have a bell or buzzer you can make it even more fun!)
