This exciting new series of practical and easy-to-use ideas have all been tried and tested by teachers in their own classrooms, and selected to enhance your classroom activities - most can be used with little or no preparation. The activities are grouped according to age appropriateness, and the clear layout shows the skills required and aims of each activity, along with preparation and running times, as well as any materials needed. However, all activities can be modified to meet your own needs - use the series as a favourite group of recipe books to be adapted as you see fit. This series will quickly become a quick and essential reference that you will refer to time and again. The activities are designed to help pupils understand concepts and build skills through a variety of approaches. And remember - if the activity is in the book, it is because another teacher has used it successfully! These practical resources are suitable for both trainee and more experienced teachers, as well as classroom assistants. This collection of handy classroom activities covers citizenship, geography, history, culture, community and current events.
The ideas are presented in a concise recipe format that includes age group and skill targeted, prep and activity time required, materials and set-up necessary, extensions and variations. The activities are designed for individuals, for small groups, and for large groups, but all can easily be adapted. There are cross-curricular tie-ins and projects that could easily blossom into term-long projects.
