This multimedia teacher’s pack by Engaged in Art contains a huge variety of resources in a complete unit where children learn all about frogs by; identifying those who come into their garden or local area, listening to their calls, learning about their threat of extinction, recording facts about their diet, predators, defence mechanisms, habitat, amphibian traits, the frog life cycle, famous frogs in movies, games and literature and finally doing sketches of them, learning how to colour creatively using the illustrations in the Frog Colouring Book and entering an artwork into the annual “Save the Frogs” Art Contest.
These frog teaching ideas are available to view online using the Blendspace platform and also as a PDF.
Why both formats?
The thinking behind this is that as a teacher using technology in your classroom such as IPads and Interactive whiteboards you will find it easier to use Blendspace as an online platform to easily click through the unit tiles having access to the Internet resulting in a live, interactive unit for the children to work through. Most children are now required to have IPads as a tool for their learning in Schools so this is a complete digital learning environment. Additionally, children with the link to the Blendspace Unit will be able to do homework by refering to the info and pictures.
The PDF booklet also contains links to virtual resources but is more like your own printable teacher’s copy which you can easily download, print out and bind as a resource to use again and again. Each page is A4 allowing you to do this whereas Blendspace has not been designed with printing in mind. The PDF booklet when printed out will be your hard copy reference to be used in conjunction with the teaching unit on Blendspace.
Teachers are permitted to print out one set of handouts from the PDF Booklet to give to one class.
