Module: Workplace Skills
Get your future professionals working in teams as part of a college and career readiness lesson. Discuss times learners have been on teams. What worked and what didn't? How did they settle disagreements? There is a teamwork handout here which has scholars check off their competency with various teamwork skills. Although the lesson suggests having them check these off as a reflection of a past group project, consider incorporating a group activity into this lesson before even discussing the objective. This will streamline discussion and the worksheet responses.
Introducing The Manager System
Students explore the importance of classroom jobs and having a leader. After listening to a book, students discuss teamwork and responsibility as well as the jobs and responsibilities described in the story. They determine how to demonstrate teamwork and responsibility in the classroom. Students create a list of classroom jobs, with job descriptions.
Modern Day Pyramids
Learners investigate the ways in which ancient technologies - six types of simple machines and combinations - are used to construct modern buildings. As they work together to solve a design problem (designing and building a modern structure), they brainstorm ideas, decide on a design, and submit it to a design review before acquiring materials to create it.
Teach the Peach
Oh how I love a good and well-written teaching guide! Here is a great set of activities, worksheets, and comprehension questions all related to the book James and the Giant Peach. Each activity is centered on a different theme or concept from the novel and is written to increase reading comprehension, literary analysis, and writing skills. Just click, print, and use!
New! Toxic Popcorn Design Challenge
Engineering enthusiasts are sure to explode in understanding as they practice the engineering design process (EDP). A container of "toxic popcorn" is placed in the classroom. Teams must work together to devise a method for removing it safely. Plan on awarding successful teams with a delicious snack at the end of the challenge.
New! A Century of Plastics
After reading about polymer materials, engineer trainees examine how plastics have been integrated into everyday products. In groups, they compile a list of products made entirely without plastics and then, as a closing activity, try to plan a redesign of a plastic product using fifty percent less of the material. The reading can be done in support of Common Core standards for literacy in science.
New! Biomimicry in Engineering
Take a look with your class at how nature supplies inspiration to engineers. In cooperative groups, youngsters research biomimicry and then develop a system that would help support people living on the moon. Each team also considers patent rights and presents their design to their peers. Elementary school engineers will be meeting Next Generation Science Standards as they work on this project.
How the Rubber Meets the Road
Students design their own tire tread pattern that meets a certain requirement. In this technology instructional activity, students explore how engineers develop tire treads. They evaluate their own work and share their product with the class.
New! Build Your Own Robot Arm
Engineers team up to design and construct an 18-inch-long robotic arm that can successfully pick up a paper cup. Each group is given the exact same set of materials, but it is up to them to decide what to use and how to use it. It is a straightforward, yet challenging plan for your physical science class.
Students receive a class score of 1-5 for appropriate behavior and participation during P.E. class. When class exits P.E., they move the class ant to a different fruit or vegetable. Each piece of food is worth 5 points, so some may be in between pieces.
Floor Hockey Skill & Activity Circuit
Introduce five activities for practicing floor hockey skills. Now that the class has been taught how to perform these skills, set them up to practice. Play Keep Away, play 3 v 3, practice target passing and shooting, practice partner dribbling, and finally practice group passing. These drills are thoughtfully set up to get the most practice time for each player as possible.
New! Build a Big Wheel
What does it take to prepare for a construction project? In an engineering lesson, youngsters examine how a Ferris wheel can turn and carry a load without falling apart. After reading up on big wheel designs, they create a model using pasta noodles, teabags, and other simple materials. Try finding a video on the Internet about the amazing Singapore Flyer and showing it to your class as an anticipatory set.
Education: Looking Beyond the Classroom
To better understand what it takes to work in the field of training or educating, learners first explore the education career cluster. After they research the cluster, pupils write questions for a guest speaker. This speaker can be from any job in the education cluster.
Sportsmanship in Action
For this sportsmanship worksheet, students are instructed to read articles at KidsHealth to learn about sportsmanship, then answer a set of questions to help write a brief play about sportsmanship.
Understanding Behaviors Required to Maintain Employment
Now that your upper grader has a job, you need to teach him how to keep it. Discuss appropriate workplace behavior such as teamwork, initiative, and self-motivation. Also bridge the topic of what is and what isn't ethical behavior and why it's so important to maintaining a job and workplace environment.
This is a big dodgeball game. The cats line up on the sidelines of the basketball court. The mice line up on one endline of the basketball court. The mice want to get the cheese from one end of the court to the other and then back. Of course, they do not want to get hit by balls being thrown by the cats! Sounds like a lot of fun to play, and it's a great way to practice throwing skills.
Divide the class up so there are five players on each team. Then scatter enough cones for soccer goals. Each team needs to have offensive players who will dribble and pass the soccer ball and try to score on all the other teams. They will also have a couple of players who will defend their goal and try to keep the other teams from scoring goals against them. You can decide if you want to allow teams to have goalies or not. If you let them have goalies, make sure to rotate positions so everyone has a chance to run around.
New! Educational apps reviews are available to members
Looking for different activities to develop communication skills and teamwork in your class? Tired of using the same name game to start your school year? From icebreakers to initiatives, this app is sure to have the perfect group game to get your young learners out of their seats and interacting effectively!
New! The Phone Charger Conundrum
In a role-playing activity, young engineers develop a standard for what a cell phone would need in order to use a "PowerFork" charger. Once the parameters are set, they work in small groups to construct such a cell phone. By using this instructional activity, designers discover the importance of having technical standards to establish uniformity.
Personal Health Series: Sportsmanship
In this sportsmanship worksheet, students choose 1 of 3 given sports scenarios, then complete an organizer that asks: what would a good sport do, and what might happen next?
