I was looking for some resources that cover the complex topic of environmental issues in a simplified format with clear use of images, and this really fits the bill! I love the topic guides and mini video guides to introduce the topic, and The Positive Actions is a great addition to promote thinking.
Well, you've done it again.
This is an excellent resource which will work across different age groups and units of work. Thank you for such a varied and informative pack, I look forward to hearing how others have used it too. Like your previous reviewer, the inclusion of biographies really widens its scope.
I've been looking forward to this Pack! In our school we teach a number of units which link with the environment, as well as having many activities and events throughout the year in which we talk about global warming, pollution, recycling, and so on. So I'm very happy to see this Pack. It ticks all the boxes, of course - display posters, bunting, a guide, colouring pages, a collection of iconic images, vocabulary cards - but I was delighted to see some extra-special resources as.well, including biographies and comprehensions on David Attenborough and Greta Thunberg - who we were discussing in class recently - as well as a delightful vocabulary game. Last seen as the Bug Buster in the Maths Games Pack, I know the children are going to love it, and hope we see this game in other packs too!
The environment is an incredibly important topic, and now we are ready to teach it as never before!
