Students work in small groups to create a topographic map of Malta. They must include labeled line drawings of bordering countries and bodies of water. Students use salt and flour clay to make Malta three dimensional, showing the nearest mountains and the major body of water surrounding Malta. This is the first of a series of lessons at this link. Seven chapters of the book "Malta" are covered in this series.
New Review Introduction to the European Union
What is the purpose of the European Union, and what institutions and countries comprise it? Check out this resource in which class members participate in a student-led WebQuest activity designed to offer an overview of the European Union. They will then work in groups to design travel brochures on assigned countries from the European Union.
In this online interactive geography quiz worksheet, students examine the the a map and chart as they try to name all of the Mediterranean Islands represented in 4 minutes.
Students study the make-up of compound words. In this compound words lesson, students work as a class to brainstorm a list of compound words and then draw pictures on a piece of paper to represent each part of the compound words.
Students read an article on the British Empire. In this ESL instructional activity, students explore the British Empire from the 1600's, then work in small groups to complete several activities that reinforce the information learned in the reading.

In this everyday editing worksheet, young scholars correct grammatical mistakes in a short paragraph about Malta. The errors range from punctuation, capitalization, grammar, and spelling.
New Review The Cold War
Take your instruction on the Cold War to the next level by having learners participate in a group role-playing exercise, working to convey pertinent information and illustrate the intense anxiety related to this time period in the United States.
New Review Arctic Food Chain
Explore the food chains that support Arctic ecosystems. A class discussion on interdependence and the different roles plants and animals play in ecosystems provides students with the knowledge to complete a worksheet asking them to create food chains involving a variety of Arctic life. To further engage students in the activity, consider assigning each child an Arctic plant or animal and having the class arrange and rearrange themselves into food chains. This resource would fit perfectly into a unit investigating the different types of ecosystems found around the world.
New Review Land of the Midnight Sun
From days of 24 hour sunlight, to endless nights that last for days, the Arctic is a very unique place to live. Examine the seasonal changes that occur in the northern-most reaches of the globe and the impact they have on the plants and animals living there.

Investigate the properties of three-dimensional figures with this Arctic-themed math lesson plan. Beginning with a class discussion about different types of solid figures present in the classroom, young mathematicians are then given a two-sided worksheet asking them to draw 3-D shapes, identify their parts, and create cubes from a series of nets. Though the lesson plan does not provide any detailed information about the Arctic, it is does provide a fun change of pace to a geometry unit in the upper-elementary grades.

Answers are provided.
Discuss The Supper at Emmaus by Michelangelo with your eager sixth graders. While the painting does depict a religious scene, it is a great way to show how cultural context can be reflected in art. Viewers will learn about Michelangelo, the setting in the painting, and use the chiaroscuro technique to enhance a painting of their own.
Working in partners, scholars each build a two-digit number by taking 10-stacks and single cubes from bags and coloring them on a chart (provided). They then compare numbers and determine which is greater. Together, they calculate the difference between the larger and smaller numbers. Using academic language is emphasized: "greater than," "less than," and "the difference." An assessment rubric is included.
Learners construct a model of the hydrologic cycle, and observe that water is an element of a cycle in the natural environment. They explain how the hydrologic cycle works and why it is important, and compare the hydrologic cycle to other cycles found in nature. This is one of the most thoroughly thought-through, one-period lesson plans I've ever come across!
