Projects are lots of fun, loved by children and they make teaching easy for teachers. Creating a hands on learning experience, which is in line with best practice.
This is one of the best projects, I have ever implemented.
Very easy to implement this project with children. I usually get them to do it in groups of 3. They complete the project over the course of 1-2 weeks.
Project = Mini-beasts (You can easily fit mini-beasts into any theme you are covering..
For example: Caring (Caring for mini-beasts).
Summer (mini-beasts we see in summer in Ireland)
School (mini-beasts around our school) etc.
Children will be amazed at some of the facts that are revealed during the project. For example: A spiders legs grow out of his head/A fly vomits on his food before eating it and so on.
This is a great package. It contains full lesson plans and resources to implement the project.
When the children are finished, I would then staple all the projects together, to make a booklet on Mini-beasts. Put this on your supervisor's desk to ensure you get rewarded for it. (You could even prep one student to tell the supervisor about what he/she learned/enjoyed about the project).
*The research is done and the lesson plans are wrote - this project will save you A LOT of time! Well worth €5.50!
