Sometimes the most difficult part of teaching is the unplanned absence when you have no idea who your substitute teacher will be. The truth is not every substitute teacher can enter your classroom and immediately teach your lesson. So give your class a day-off from the normal routine but keep things educational at the same time.
This purchase will have your upper middle school and high school class covered for two class periods (2 hours) with a combination of video, article, and vocabulary puzzle focusing on a fascinating topic that will keep them engaged.
This emergency lesson plan focuses on the topic of SURVIVING ANIMAL ATTACKS and all the facts and safety tip information surrounding this threat to human health.
I use this same plan for my science classroom because I follow the K.I.S.S. motto (Keeping It Stress-free (for the) Substitute)! I guarantee the items in this purchase will keep your students working and interested since it focuses on true life survivors of different animal attacks.
Your purchase includes:
1) Video Link and Question Sheet (a 48-minute FREE video found on You Tube and a 36-question sheet to accompany it). This video focuses on people who have survived wolf, coyote, and cougar attacks. - (DAY 1)

3) Vocabulary Puzzles (with Answer Keys) - 27 key vocabulary terms from the video and article are focused on in either a Criss-Cross Grid or a Word Search. Sentence writing is included with each puzzle to engage students in using vocabulary in their writing. - (DAY 2)
All of these items are included as MS-Word documents which will make any editing easy so all papers fit the best needs of your students.
