Geography Endangered Animals

Geography Endangered Animals

This lesson explains why some animals are endangered, what this means and how to help. The 'Top-Trumps' style cards are for the children to use (with their research from computers and books) to draw and write about endangered animals of their choice. I cut the cards out ahead of the lesson and stuck as many as the children completed in thetime into their books. (This resource uses ideas and images from a resource by TES author ghfrdsa)

Qatar History and Desert Bundle

Qatar History and Desert Bundle

I lived and I worked in Qatar for a year. I know that while you need to teach about Qatar History, the books you are given are not easy to use and certainly won't last you a whole year and so I took the books I was given and I extended the tasks to produce a more interesting and more supportive learning environment, ideal for both the teachers and their students to get a lot more out of this topic.
