The following Bloom's Taxonomy inspired activities looks at Earth's Oceans. Its tasks focuses on human caused disasters on oceans and marine life, over fishing, shark fining and pollution in water ways.
Using Blooms Taxonomy Framework, this resource will enable you to use it as a tool for higher order thinking and build upon the work that you have taught them about the subject. Staring with basic skills such as knowledge and understanding, students then will be challenged to apply facts that they learned and apply it in creative ways.
For example, a Create Task asks students to create a petition for an ocean cause (conserve marine life or managing water pollution). They will be required to research the cause, create a statement goal with supporting information flyers and collect signatures. This could be sent to an organisation for a "real world" application of their knowledge. The Create Tasks, have been specifically designed to make students think creatively with their knowledge.
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.
