Do you spend hours scanning the internet for resources to teach like I do? I happened to stumble across this website today and it's FANTASTIC because it has a variety of resources for all age groups for FREE. If you don't use ARKive Education to teach with, at least download the videos for your students to watch in a technology workstation! They are high quality resources! I'm going to post one below because it relates to the curriculum here in Ontario. I'm trying to find some neat stuff for next year - and this looks fantastic!
This activity has come from the 11-14 year olds, but as you see when you visit the link for ARKive Education, you will see a wide range of resources for 5 to 18 year olds!
So as you can see in the picture that I captured above, each topic comes with teacher's notes, a powerpoint presentation and an activity pack zip file. In the Teacher's notes, there are links to videos. The video below comes from this lesson plan. As you can see from watching the video below, these are high quality video resources! In this particular video, students dissect the birds to see what kinds of items they have ingested! This video can be downloaded as well so you can keep it for future use!
I have posted the teacher's notes below so that you can take a look at what kind of material you get and then the powerpoint will follow. I hope that you can use these resources :)
The worksheets that accompany this lesson plan must be in the downloadable activity zip file! I didn't actually open it up to check them out as I'm not a big worksheet gal!
When you open up this powerpoint, you will see notes that you can use while you are teaching to provide more information - it is absolutely fantastic!
I hope you enjoy this cool resource! I haven't checked out the younger student activities yet but I know that I will be using this one with my kiddos next year!
