FREE SOCIAL STUDIES LESSON - “Industrial Revolution Vocabulary Cut & Paste FREEBIE”

by Unitedtoteach
5th - 8th Grade


This is a free cut and paste vocabulary activity related to the Industrial Revolution. Give students the background vocabulary they need to better understand what happened during the Industrial Revolution. You could also use this vocabulary as you cover a unit on the Industrial Revolution &/or to review at the end of the unit. This vocabulary activity differs from simply having students find definitions and match them with a pencil. This is a great activity for kinesthetic learners because it involves their hands staying busy as they learn! If you would like to see my full Industrial Revolution product you can go to this link:

FREE SCIENCE LESSON - “Careers in Biology Mini Posters For Classroom Display”

by Amy Brown Science
3rd - 12th Grade


Careers in Biology: A set of mini-posters for classroom display
Many of my high school biology students are interested in pursuing a career in the biological sciences, but they are very unaware of all the possible job opportunities available to them.
I created this set of 26 mini posters to display in my room to help my students realize the vast array of jobs that are available in biology. I plan to add to the collection as I have time, to include many more career options.
Use these for your bulletin boards or for a display for career week at your school.
Enjoy! Biology Rocks!

Gameboards!


Gameboards
https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/No-Prep-Gameboard-Pack-3314095
Easy!  Fun!  Flexible!

Don’t forget to teach the basics!

Many students come to school without knowing how to play boardgames.  Students are enamored with the many game pieces, bright colors, special spaces, and fun of boardgames!  To Guarantee a learning environment in your classroom and to get the most out of game playing teach the behavior and expectations you require.  Before you offer the exciting practice of boardgames to your students remember to teach routines and procedures for the basics.  Here are some suggestions:


Introduce the game board. Explain what students see on the board. This includes any graphics or writing on the board. Identify the start and end spaces on the game board. Show where the gamepeices line up and where to put the gamepiece on each space.

Introduce the game pieces. These include items such as a spinner, a die (or dice), and game pieces. You may have to explain the function of what each game piece is by describing its function. A fun classroom rule when passing out game pieces is to chant, “You get what you get and you don’t throw a fit!” J

Practice moving the game pieces around the game board in the correct direction.  Practice rolling the dice.  In my class we have a rule that if the dice goes off the table, the player loses his/her turn.   Explain to students that game play goes in a clockwise direction. 

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/No-Prep-Gameboard-Pack-3314095Encourage students to talk about what it means to play fair.   By sharing specific examples such as taking turns and waiting patiently while another player makes his or her move will set the tone in your classroom.  Use students’ responses to form the basic ground rules around playing gameboards.  Talk to your students about winning and losing.  Give them the phrases to use at the end of the game”congratulations on your win, but watch out next time, I am on your heels” or “It doesn’t matter if you win or lose as long as you have fun!”


Present the vocabulary of gameboards.  Make a word wall and include words like die, dice, spaces, spinners, board, clockwise, etc.


Read the game directions. Have the child repeat the directions back to you to make sure he/she understands how to play. Remind students that game play is a privilege.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “Folktale Writing”

by Growing Smart Readers
1st - 3rd Grade


Folktale Writing is a writing activity in which kids are able to take a format and add in their own parts of speech to create a little folktale. 

This is meant to be a supplemental activity to go along with your folktale unit. It's not a true folktale (one that's been around for generations), but it has the "tone" of a folktale.

My students enjoy making up these kinds of stories, and then rereading them, which are similar to "Mad Libs". They write their own title, too. This activity is targeted for grades 1, 2 and 3, but it can scaffold your hesitant readers / writers in grade 4 so that they can write and read their stories independently. 

*Student pages include:
-2 fill-in-the-blank story pages
-1 page word bank page for nouns, verbs, adjectives
-2 pages to organize writing, and brainstorm
-Lined stationery/writing paper
(NOTE: Some words can be used as either noun or verb.)

This printable is suitable and versatile enough for varied learning opportunities. Students could work independently, in pairs, or in small groups--for ESL students, homeschoolers, too. It's also great for a homework assignment, or to use as a substitute lesson plan.

CCSS: This activity addresses several of the Common Core Standards for Reading {Literature and Foundational Skills}, Writing {Narratives}, Language {Conventions and Vocabulary}.
