In light of the unprecedented changes that have come our way in the last few months, This Geeky Teacher is making a comeback for a wee while.
This week, I’m bringing you a series of worksheets based on Instagram. I will be a different sets every day this week, covering a range of school subjects. Whether you are a teacher or a parent, you can tailor these sheets to make them work for you, or set them as a research challenge to keep your students/children busy.
All files are fully editable PPT (powerpoint) files, and the slides are A4 sized. You can print pages or make copies so they can be worked on online.
Today, I’m bringing you Geogstagram (download at the end of the post). The environment is a hot topic at the moment – as it should be – and with all the nature documentaries available to use on streaming sites, why not turn them into a resource?
The first blank worksheet allows you to focus on countries, animals, environmental events or, as I’ve done, all that good, good stuff you cover in Geography lessons (I have strong memories of studying groynes for GCSE geography…. 15 years ago…)
You could even use the hashtags to hypothesis what the original creators or animals would have said were they posting their on instagram themselves!
This sheet can be printed (laminated if you like) and cut into four to serve as revision cards, quiz cards or a useful teaching device.
Sheets two and three, have the same function, but give two possible options: a printable with lines or an on-computer worksheet with a text box. Whether you’re following a syllabus or a David Attenborough documentary, the possibilities are endless.
You could challenge your children to come up with the strangest animal from a country, and tell them to persuade you – as best they can – why their choice is best. Or, perhaps, you could have kids working together to create a continent fact file.
Speaking of fact files, does anyone remember these from the 90’s?
Only one more left – check back the same time tomorrow for the last one in the series!
