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 over an hour (90+ minutes) with a combination of video, article, writing, and vocabulary puzzle focusing on a fascinating topic that will keep them engaged.
This emergency lesson plan focuses on the topic of SURVIVING SHARK ATTACKS and all the facts and safety tip information surrounding this threat to human safety in the ocean.
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 shark encounters.

1) Video Link and Question Sheet (a 48-minute FREE video found on You Tube and a 31-question sheet to accompany it). This video focuses on people who have survived shark attacks. ANSWER KEY INCLUDED.

3) Vocabulary Puzzle (with Answer Key) - 26 key vocabulary terms from the video and article are focused on in a Criss-Cross Grid. Sentence writing is included to engage students in using vocabulary in their writing.
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.
