Fighting Pollution From Outer Space – Free Printables for Teachers/Parents

Fighting Pollution From Outer Space.

 

 

I’m going to present the information I have researched in fairly simple and child-friendly terms, since my aim will be to provide teacher/parent resources at the bottom of this lens page for parents or educators who would perhaps like to share the information with their students/children.

You will have seen by the title that this lens is about pollution – and trying to combat the problem -> from outer space!

Not all types of pollution are easily seen. For example invisible plumes of gas may drift over our towns and cities; they can cause asthma and a variety of other chest and respiratory problems.

Pollution can kill trees.

Pollution can kill animals.

Pollution can damage the air that we breathe.

Pollution can damage the very earth on which we live, the very earth that without which, we will not be able to survive..

loads of free printables on this page!

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.

Squirrel Thematic Unit Study, Free Homeschool Printables

Squirrel Thematic Unit Study.

 

 

In compiling unit studies, the intention is not only to introduce little folk to these courageous (and oh! so very cute) creatures, but to educate future generations about conservation and how, if every one person did just one thing to help, it would go a very long way to conserving the natural habitat and indeed preserving the species

This book is on the topic of ‘Bugs’ with the target audience being those who are 8-12 years old. The project will cover many bugs that children have heard of, or that may be particularly interesting to them.

Because of the vast amount of information available and the huge variety of insect species, the entire topic has been covered in alphabetical order and in Parts 1, 2 etc.

Each book contains basic information on the insect, as well as written exercises, revision, teaching notes and research activities. Vocabulary exercises are included; so too are drawings, crosswords, word searches, action rhymes and fingerplays,, lesson plans and lots of activities for younger learners, making this an ideal book for all ages.

Some of the subjects contain literature unit studies and handwriting activities.

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.

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 🙂

Anyway on to the reason for this post:

Ants, a Comprehensive Unit Study & Teaching Guide/Activity Book – #StAiden’s Homeschool, #CurrClick

Ants, a Comprehensive Unit Study & Teaching Guide/Activity Book – St Aiden’s Homeschool, South Africa | CurrClick.

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. It is compiled in US Letter format but UK English, please adjust printer settings.

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.

In the search for a study which will give unlimited scope for independent thought and observation and which will lead the child to understand better the forces of nature that affect agriculture, nothing is so readily available and attractive to the child as nature study, an elementary study of the natural sciences. In fact agriculture is primarily a course in nature study where we study how plants and animals struggle for existence.

There is a period in the life of every child when he is especially susceptible to the “call of the fields” when he roams through woods or by shady brooks gathering flowers, fishing for mud-cats and cleaning out bumble-bees’ nests. It is often compared with the life of the savage and is merely the outward expression of an inward craving for a closer relation with nature and her creatures. If one can reach a child while at that age he has a ready listener and an apt learner. That is the time to guide and instruct the child along the line of nature study.

The most important questions confronting the average educator/parent in the grade schools are: “What material shall I use and how shall I proceed to direct the child along this line?” First of all use that material which is most readily available, which is most familiar to the child and which will attract and hold his attention. There is nothing so readily available and so generally interesting to both boys and girls as are the thousands of fluttering, buzzing, hopping and creeping forms of insects. They are present everywhere, in all seasons and are known to every child of the city or farm. They are easily observed in the field and can be kept in confinement for study. Many of them are of the greatest importance to man; a study of them becomes of special value.

Learners should not be encouraged merely to make observations, but they should be required to record them as well. Brief descriptions of the appearance and development 0of 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 educator/parent should therefore require each learner to provide himself with a notebook for keeping brief, but accurate notes and careful drawings.

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.
