Crickets, Unit Study and Activity Book

Crickets, Unit Study and Activity Book

via Crickets, Unit Study and Activity Book.

 

 

Not all the tiny creatures you see creeping and crawling and flying are truly bugs. When somebody says, “Ooh, look at the bug!” he might be pointing at a beetle with six legs, or a spider with eight legs, or a centipede with many legs. Or he might be pointing at a stink bug, which belongs to the only family scientists call bugs. But in this book we call them all bugs to make it easier.

This book is on the singing bug called the cricket, and also talks about the cricket’s cousins, the grasshopper, cicada and katydid.

This activity unit is suitable for early and more advanced learners, and for a theme within your homeschool classroom.

You may not care how much I know, but you don’t know how much I care.”

The information is presented language that can be geared towards older or younger students. The language and terminology as is is thus suitable for around Grades 4-5, but with discussion and explanation it is suitable for younger learners. Older learners will be able to study the information and complete the activities with a minimum of assistance. The Activities, Comprehension and Revision exercises are ranged from young learners to older learners.

To cover all elementary age groups I have also included crossword puzzles, word-searches, lesson plans, crafts and activities for the range Pre-K upwards. Particularly for the kindergarten/grades 1-2 age groups I have included squirrel thematic printables that can be used in a classroom theme or Homeschool room setting.

Teaching Guides, Lesson Plans and ideas, as well as the geography, history & location of the very many species of these beautiful creatures, many of which are endangered, have been included.

Simple & healthy snacks and recipes are sure to delight any child (and adult), while riddles, songs and finger plays, Squirrel Games complete the early learning thematic unit. A special section on learning/teaching Haiku is a fun inclusion in this unit.

This book is on the topic of ‘Ants’ with the target audience being those who are 6-13 years old. The project will cover many species of ants, (and a few other bugs), that children have heard of, or that may be particularly interesting to them. A comprehensive unit study, this book comprises lessons, activities and guides which will assist in providing a complete study of ants in their various forms.

Learning about ants is fun! With a little creativity there is no end to the learning opportunities which may be based around the theme of ants. Maybe it’s their amazing societal structure, feats of strength or ability to survive almost anywhere on the planet that have caused children (and many adults!) to be fascinated by ants.

Learners should be encouraged to record observations. Brief descriptions of the appearance and development of insects, the injury they do, and remedies for the same, will help fix in mind facts which otherwise might soon be forgotten. Drawings, whenever possible, should also be required. The learner who can record observations accurately with drawings will not soon forget them. The pages of this book may be printed and kept in a file-folder together with any notes, drawings or observations made by your child. Pages have been included within this unit study for the recording of such information. By making use of a file-folder you will be able to make use of the unit study for reference purposes and also as a gauge in assessment at a later stage.

This book has been compiled as a result of extensive research and from my own learning experiences and homeschooling journey with my beloved children. Please be sure to familiarize yourself with the requirements of homeschooling in your area as each country/State has different requirements. At the end of the book you will find a selection of reports, registers and logs that you can make use of in your homeschooling schedule. I wish you and your family the very best and applaud your decision to home educate your child. After all we, as parents, we around a lot longer than the man-made public education system and who better to teach our children than their parents? May you be blessed in this decision and remember that learning is fun!!

Our gift to you: With this book you will receive a download link for a zip file containing additional mini unit study Notebooks. All files are in PDF format. You will require Winzip (or a similar programme) to unzip the files. The Gift Books are all between around 54 & 70 pages in length.

From Plastic Bags to Soccer Balls #worldcup #southafrica #Eco #Recycle

In time for FIFA 2010 World Cup Soccer, hosted by South Africa

Plastic bags are so cheap to produce, sturdy, plentiful, easy to carry and store that they have captured at least 80 percent of the grocery and convenience store market since they were introduced a quarter century ago, according to the Arlington, Virginia-based American Plastics Council.

As a result, the totes are everywhere. They sit balled up and stuffed into the one that hangs from the pantry door. They line bathroom trash bins. They carry clothes to the gym. They clutter landfills. They flap from trees. They float in the breeze. They clog roadside drains. They drift on the high seas. They fill sea turtle bellies.

“The numbers are absolutely staggering,” said Vincent Cobb, an entrepreneur in Chicago, Illinois, who recently launched the Web site http://Reusablebags.com to educate the public about what he terms the “true costs” associated with the spread of “free” bags. He sells reusable bags as a viable solution.

According to Cobb’s data released by the United States Environmental Protection Agency in 2001 on U.S. plastic bag, sack, and wrap consumption, somewhere between 500 billion and a trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide each year. Of those, millions end up in the litter stream outside of landfills—estimates range from less than one to three percent of the bags.

The American Plastics Council said the industry works with its U.S. retail customers to encourage recycling of plastic bags, which are in high demand from companies  for use in building materials.

“We also feel it is important to understand that plastic grocery bags are some of the most reused items around the house,” the spokesperson said. “Many, many bags are reused as book and lunch bags as kids head off to school, as trash can liners, and to pickup dog”s droppings off the lawn.”

But like candy wrappers, chewing gum, cigarette butts, and thousands of other pieces of junk, millions of the plastic bags end up as litter. Once in the environment, it takes months to hundreds of years for plastic bags to breakdown. As they decompose, tiny toxic bits seep into soils, lakes, rivers, and the oceans.

Plastic Fantastic

The Film and Bag Federation, a trade group within the Society of the Plastics Industry based in Washington, D.C., said the right choice between paper or plastic bags is clearly plastic.

Compared to paper grocery bags, plastic grocery bags consume 40 percent less energy, generate 80 percent less solid waste, produce 70 percent fewer atmospheric emissions, and release up to 94 percent fewer waterborne wastes, according to the federation.

Robert Bateman, president of Roplast Industries, a manufacturer of plastic bags—including reusable ones— said the economic advantage of plastic bags over paper bags has become too significant for store owners to ignore. It costs one cent for a standard plastic grocery sack, whereas a paper bag costs four cents, he said.

Adapted from:  National Geographic

These bags are known as green bags in Australia due to their relative environmental friendliness and usual (though far from universal) green colour. Green Bags and similar reusable shopping bags are commonly distributed at the point of sale by supermarkets and other retail outlets. They are intended to be reused repeatedly to replace the use of hundreds of HDPE plastic bags. Most green bags are made of 100% Non-woven Polypropylene which is recyclable but not biodegradable. Some companies claim to be making NWPP bags from recycled material, however with current manufacturing techniques this is not possible.

A reusable shopping bag, sometimes called bag for life is a type of shopping bag which can be reused several times: this is an alternative of single use paper or plastic bags. It is often made from fabric such as canvas, woven synthetic fibres, or a thick plastic that is more durable than disposable plastic bags, allowing multiple use.

Reusable shopping bags are a kind of carrier bags, which are available for sale in supermarkets and apparel shops. Reusable shopping bags requires less waste of natural resources such as oil and less emission of carbon dioxide to produce than plastic bags.

Here we teach youngsters how to make soccer balls from plastic bags.

What You’ll Need:

Plastic shopping bags, carrier bags or plastic grocery bags  are a common type of shopping bag in several countries. Most often these bags are intended for a single use to carry items from a store to a home: reuse for storage or trash (bin bags) is common. Heavier duty plastic shopping bags are suitable for multiple=

  • Old Newspaper, cloth or sponge
  • Old Plastic Shopping bags, bubblewrap and a Burlap sack if you can find one (The strong ones used to carry compost)
  • Some string, sticky tape and/or elastic bands

What to do:

  1. Start by taking your newspaper, cloth or sponge and roll it up into a ball.
  2. Take the string or elastic and tie it around the ball.
  3. Place the ball into a plastic bag and tie a knot with the two ennds.
  4. Then tie some more elastics or string around the plastic bag.
  5. Repeat step 3 a couple of times until you are happy with the size of the ball.
  6. Lastly, place the ball into the surlap Sack, if you found one, to give it a strong outside layer and then securely tie it down one last time with your strong, elastic bands and sticky tape.

Many children living in poverty love soccer, but have never played with a real soccer ball. They make them out of rags or corn husks. This boy made one out of plastic bags. World Vision’s “Get a Kick Out of Sharing” project allows you to donate new or gently used soccer balls to bring joy to these kids. Contact Mike Lane at 1-800-642-1616, ext. 2, or www.WorldVision.org/SoccerBalls

Here’s AIDS orphan Paulo on how to make a Malawian soccer ball:

1. You take an old blanket.
2. Rip the blanket into strips.
3. Tie the strips together to make longer strips of fabric.
4. Weave the strips of fabric into a ball shape.
5. Wrap the ball with an old plastic bag.
6. Wrap the plastic ball with more blanket strips.
7. You will get a Malawian soccer ball.

Hmm, sounds like they could use sports equipment, too. Donations to Canterio International, the registered charity the Malawi Pangea Project is working with, here. Anyone who wants to donate supplies can contact the group via the email listed at the top of the Malawi Council’s most excellent and very active site.

Okay, not quite Jabulani, the official match ball of the 2010 FIFA World Cup – but hey, they do the job 🙂

Just as an aside I collected my daughter from what used to be Durban International Airport before 6 am Monday morning, it was pitch dark and since it is a trip I make more regularly than I care to admit, I thought it odd that it was dark, no planes, no traffic.. helloooooooooooo what’s happening.. only to be re-directed by security there (in the dark(head internally sceaming ummm SECURITY???) – 3 kids sleeping in the car) that uhh- noooooooo all flights have been re-directed to King Shaka International Airport -> some 80 kilometres UP the KwaZuluNatal North Coast – hyperventilating here #RunningOutOfTime… get to VERULAM/TONGAAT PRONTO!

On our way to King Shaka International Airport, which ranks amongst some of the finest I have seen in the world, and let me tell you there have been MANY – we happened to drive right beside the FIFA 2010 Durban World Cup Soccer Stadium as the sun was rising on our right… Could not stop to take pictures, but apparently Portugal (A favourite team my daughter from Dubai – and my reason for this ridiculously long trip – tells me – she says they’re HAWT – is playing there on Sunday… )

Pictures were taken of the stadium from moving car on freeway by Savannah (with cell phone) of Durban WC Soccer Stadium….  South Africa – even though we know these Stadiums are yet to be paid for and the problems that have gone along with getting them fnished – I can say this with all honesty – TODAY I AM PROUDLY SOUTH AFRICAN!!! Way to Go!!  Will post pics soon as I upload them 🙂

The Christmas Child Comprehensive Unit Study for All Grade Levels This is an absolutely delightful story of a Babe Born (or rather found) in a Manger on Christmas Day. Whilst set in old-time Wales it covers the cultural influences of those times, and the people who lived their lives according to The Book. The story takes a heart-wrenching and unexpected twist, whilst all the time two of the main characters keeping The Faith and their Belief in Christmas, more particularly the Birth of Christ or the “child in the manger”. I absolutely had to compile a Unit Study on this book. It is really quite a comprehensive Unit Study because although some of the phrases and wording will be far advanced for very early learners, the story is a beautiful one for parents or educators to read to …

The Christmas Dinner – An Activity Play for Children

BUNDLE PRICE: $1.00

This delightful play (in three parts) for children of all ages is intended, not only for acting, but also for reading and comprehension.

It is arranged that boys and girls can read it to themselves, just as they would read any other story. Even the stage directions and the descriptions of scenery are presented as a part of the narrative. At the same time, by the use of different styles of type, the speeches of the characters are clearly distinguished from the rest of the text, an arrangement which will be found convenient when parts are being memorized for acting.

What sort of a Christmas play do boys and girls like, and in wha…

The Christmas Story as Told in The Bible ~ Copywork & Activity Book

This 105 Page educational eBook focuses on the Story of the Birth of Christ as told in the KJV Bible.  This is a complete Unit Study  of the Birth , and included are fun exercises to take away any monotony that may arise (and often does) with copywork.  Standard fonts have been used for general copywork, and Tracing Fonts have been used for the younger learner.  Training lines and standard lines will be found throughout the book, which focuses on the entire passages of the Bible, but reinforces  certain aspects of the birth which will already be familiar  to your child when hearing the Sotry of the Birth of Christ.


Timeless Christmas Classics – Unit Studies & Reading Comprehnsion for All Ages
MSRP: $4.95
BUNDLE PRICE: $2.00

No greater teaching force has ever been discovered than the story and no one has ever lived who used that force so skilfully as did our Great Teacher.

It is not strange, then, that among all the stories that have ever been written or told none are so dear to us as the stories and legends which centre in His birth. Young and old alike delight in them and never tire of hearing them.

Unusual care has been taken in compiling this little volume and each story has its own sweet lesson. Each one is from the pen of one who has imbibed the real spirit of Christmas. They will prove attractive and helpful at any time during the year.

It is our earnest wish that this book may find its way into many homes and schools and Sunday Schools and that its contents may help to g…

Letter A – “Bossy R” ~ Alphabet & Phonics Picture Dictionary & Activity Book – St Aiden’s Homeschool, South Africa | CurrClick

Letter A – “Bossy R” ~ ~ Alphabet & Phonics Picture Dictionary & Activity Book – St Aiden’s Homeschool, South Africa | CurrClick.

Letter A - "Bossy R" ~ ~ Alphabet & Phonics Picture Dictionary & Activity Book

This book has been created with a focus on a specific letter of the alphabet, or in the case of “soft” and “hard” letters i.e. a, c, g etc. a specific sound. It is ideally suited to very early learners, those just commencing their educational journey
Since I am a firm believer in each child developing at his or her own pace I have not specified a typical age group within which to introduce this kind of activity book. Some learners will grasp concepts at a faster pace than others, while others will be comfortable with some of the exercises and may find others a little more challenging.

I have aimed to incorporate activities suitable for young children from very young to around Grade 3. Again there is no hard and fast rule.

This 53 page book includes Teacher/Parent notes, handwriting practice, letter, picture and word identification, dictionary work, wordsearches, puzzles, mazes, colouring in pages, rhymes, crossword puzzles and quizzes. The child will ideally begin to recognise both the lower and upper case letter, while recognising the sounds attached to pictures, such as in the exercise “Where’s that sound?” Sight word cards are included as per the Word List, as are training lines for word practice. Cutting and pasting pictures is another excellent way for your child to identify the sound that the letter makes. A section has been included for this purpose, as has another section where your child is asked to draw the picture that the sound (word) makes.

When the consonant R follows a vowel, the sound of the vowel changes. These are called R-controlled vowels. Children learn it as the “bossy R.”

This book focuses on words beginning with the letter A, whose sound is controlled by “bossy R”

Once all the Picture Dictionary Activity Books are completed and uploaded similar books will be uploaded with a focus on word families. New additions will be made to this series of activity books on a weekly basis. Each book may be previewed in its entirety prior to downloading.

With blessings for your educational Journey
