PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I created these presentations/resources for my class as a series of cross curricular lessons on minibeasts. The resource bundle has simple and appealing presentations to introduce minibeasts and food chains. I have included tasks and active learning throughout the presentations. I feel that young learners benefit from clear and concise minibeast facts as many of the relevant non fiction texts are too difficult for early readers to access.

The Butterfly Presentation includes:
simple factual information about butterflies to read and discuss
opportunities to build up important ‘butterfly’ vocabulary before writing ( whiteboard task)
factual writing task with sentence stems
a labelling task and life cycle sequencing task
‘butterfly’ poems to read, enjoy, discuss and perform
simple ‘draw a butterfly’ task & alternative ‘cut and stick’ task

The Spider presentation includes:
simple factual information about spiders to read and discuss
opportunities to build up important ‘spider’ vocabulary before writing ( whiteboard task)
factual writing task with sentence stems
a labelling task ( spider’s body)
‘spider’ poems to read, enjoy, discuss and perform
simple art lesson for a spider web

The Minibeast Poetry presentation provides an opportunity for learners to compose a minibeast poem. It details the structure
of the poem and has appealing graphics and suggestions to aid composition.

In addition, there is a basic introduction to food chains with tasks.
Links are also provided throughout all the presentations to appropriate minibeast songs/stories that enhance and enrich the learners' experience as well as active tasks/games e.g. complete
the food chain.

Finally,some more general resources are included on living & non-living things and a 'roll a dice' task (minibeast body parts) which would be an ideal starting point for very young learners.
