This pack contains Bloom's Taxonomy activities about floods. The activities involve identifying causes and types of floods, analysing and researching floods and human efforts to manage and prevent floods from causing damage.
Using Blooms Taxonomy Framework, this resource will enable you to use it as a tool for higher order thinking and for best results is to be used in conjunction to your own unit explored in the classroom. Staring with basic skills such as knowledge and understanding, students will be challenged to apply facts that they learnt and apply it in creative ways.
For example, a Create Task asks students to design a flood mascot together with a flood safety booklet for children. This is more than just remembering and simply repeating knowledge. Students will be able to put an original spin on their work and assemble safety facts to create a unique book suited for a young audience.
It is also great to be used as an independent task or a homework extension for students that need an extra challenge. The framework allows you to date when they have completed a task so you can keep track of their progress. In the classroom, I like them to finish at least 3 activities before advancing to the next skill set.
As a heads up, some of these activities will prove to be of more value when completed together as a whole class, and therefore you may want to select those activities and use them as class competitions or whole class learning experiences.
