Teacher Exchange

I am looking forward to an upcoming teacher exchange, where all the bess teachers and children’s class teachers from my cluster area are getting together to share what we have been doing in our classes and exchange ideas.

I am thinking of ways to make this site easier for Bahai Class teachers to find everything they want to – but it is a blog afterall.

Thanks all those teachers who have been contacting me about using resources here.

Wishing you all the best for the upcoming year of your bess teaching, and looking forward to any ideas you wish to share.

You may wish to start your own blog and provide me with a link.

I love hearing from other teachers. You can also make closed blogs in bess so that only people you invite can access them.

In word press you need to have your own blog too.
You need the password to open most of these links, so please just drop me an email and you can get started.

Finding out about Rainforests in Australia

pathways to peace

Originally uploaded by gumbootspearlz.

In my web wanderings today I found some wonderful educational work on Rainforests.

The Wet Tropics Management Authority on their website have had permission to put PDF of fact sheets on many topics, such as bats, butterflies, foodchains, plants- and on top of this there is a teacher and students resource with units for Prep through to year 8 which make use of many creative teaching and thinking strategies, just as thinking hats, bloom gardeners matrix, the multiple intelligences, games, composing poetry, and role plays to explore issues of caring for the rainforest and the nature of the wildlife and fauna there.

If you are a teacher or parent wanting to educate your children about the Rainforest in Australia this is a great site for supporting you in your in efforts. If you want to also see creative teaching methods applied to a particular teaching unit this is a very interesting site that demonstrates this.  I can’t wait to encourage my own kids to explore this site and  do some of the activities on it, particularly as they are studying plants and food chains at the moment.  There is also in the rainforest explorer units a consideration of Aboriginal people living in the wet tropics environment.
