Winter Writing Prompts
In this creative writing activity students choose a story starter from a list of 16 ideas. All pertain to winter months. Some are fantasy and some realistic.
In this printing worksheet, students form 15 words related to winter, such as sledding and ice skates. Students also color in an illustration of each word.
In this physics review worksheet, students compare inertia and momentum, insulators and conductors, and series and parallel circuits. Students review Newton's laws. This worksheet has 20 fill in the blank, 12 matching, and 20 problems to solve.
In this reading passage about lakes worksheet, students read about how lakes are formed, how water is held stable, seasonal changes, pollution, and introduced species and answer comprehensive questions. Students write eight answers in complete sentences.
Take Notes/Record Findings
Readers learn how to categorize information with this simple exercise. First, they read a short passage about winter in the Northeast. They then organize the information into categories. The categories and a few examples for each are already listed, giving your learner a head start. If you want to challenge your learners, remove the bottom part of the worksheet and have them brainstorm their own categories. Consider doing this as a group.
Symphony No. 8 in F Major by Ludwig van Beethoven
For this classical music appreciation worksheet, students listen to a recording of Symphony No.8 in F Major by Ludwig van Beethoven. Students read about the composer and the structure of the piece. Students answer 10 questions.
Meet Molly An American Girl
Students examine concepts of personal finance. In this personal finance lesson, students use Valerie Tripp's, Meet Molly, An American Girl, to learn about saving and spending after World War II. They compare financial decisions after World War II with those made in contemporary society.
Sharing Your Vacation-Send a Postcard!
Students demonstrate how to write about travel experiences. In this narrative writing lesson, students discuss what the purpose of postcards are and any personal experiences they have had with writing a postcard. Students observe the instructor write a model postcard and decide on a city from which to write a mock postcard.
Right On The Money (2-3)
Students demonstrate the ability to write money amounts, and count bills and coins. In this money worksheet, students access a web site and watch a video as they learn about the Denver Mint and how much coins are worth. They listen to Amy Axelrod's Pig Will Be Pigs.
Weather and Seasons
Use pictures and manipulatives to develop vocabulary with your beginning language learners. This plan can be used with foreign language learners (although you'll have to provide the vocabulary), English language learners, or a young language arts class. They practice describing weather by examining different items related to weather such as a coat, umbrella, and scarf, and then practice telling their classmates what the weather is like in the target language. The class members create a weather mini-book including drawings of the different seasons and weather activities.
How does Physical activity Help You?
Examine factors that influence your choice about physical activity. In this physical activity instructional activity, students recognize how physical activity and good health go together. Students participate in a survey about physical activity and how it is related to good health.
What Can They do?
In this verb identification worksheet, students match the eighteen pictures that illustrate the action verb. Students complete eighteen fill-in sentences using action verbs.
In this nouns worksheet, students read 45 sentences and determine which nouns name a person, place and/or thing, Students read an additional 15 sentences, underline each noun in each one and then decide whether each one is a person, place and/or thing. Students write their choices on the lines provided.
Rhyming is fun and it helps build phonological awareness that is key in early reading. Learners use a pocket chart and a set of 40 cards that make 20 rhyming sets to practice recognizing rhyming words. Peer one picks a card from a bag and peer two finds its match on the pocket chart. They take turns until all the cards are with their rhyming partner.
Forces that Oppose Motion - It's Not Just Science Friction
A very scientific-looking but appealing set of slides helps you teach young physicists about the force of friction. First explain what static friction is and demonstrate how to solve problems. Then introduce kinetic friction and the associated equations. Finally, free fall through fluid friction concepts. Toward the end of the presentation, several slides display practice problems for viewers to try. The formatting of these slides is less-than-perfect, but easily edited so that the whole problem is visible.
Given a chart of materials and their corresponding coefficients of static and kinetic friction, your physics class can practice solving friction problems. Three scenarios are presented: a hard steel plate on a hard steel table, a Teflon-coated lead block on a steel table, and an aluminum block on a steel table. Learners solve problems involving friction, change, acceleration, and force. This exercise provides straightforward and valuable practice.
THE PHYSICS OF MOVING THINGS (AND NOT A MOMENTUM TOO SOON!)
Students list three examples of momentum found in their local environment; describe the importance of mass and velocity on momentum; and determine what is necessary to produce the greatest amount of momentum within a particular system.
Fifth Grade Language
For this language arts worksheet, 5th graders complete multiple choice questions about punctuation, parts of speech, research process and more. Students complete 25 questions.
Olympic Games Puzzles
In this Olympics activity, students solve a 12 word crossword puzzle of Olympic host cities, then complete 9 fill in the blank questions where they are given a clue, the first name, and one letter of the last name, for each United States Olympian.
What is technical knowledge? The class explores what technical knowledge might mean to an Olympic athlete. They catalog the different types of information that athletes would need to compete in various Winter Olympic sports and develop posters that highlight the training and equipment required. The activities outlined could also applied to other occupations and activities. For example, what is technical knowledge that a chef needs to know?
