Geo-literature: create your own geo-poem or story

Today's new Earthlearningidea is 'Geo-literature: poems and stories inspired by all things ‘geo’. Create your own geo-poem or story'

Much of our great literature was and is inspired by the natural world. This activity encourages pupils to write imaginatively about a topic they have studied in Earth science or geography. It creates a cross-curricular link between the sciences and arts. Send us your creations and we will publish them on our website.
    

Treasure hunt with a difference.

This Earthlearningidea is fun for young children especially if it can be played outside, 'Sensory treasure hunt; using senses to match objects with similar properties'.


This activity has endless potential and can be used in many ways.
Lots more ideas which can be used in the holidays can be found in the 'Children's Fun' section of our website.
    

Art and sculpture inspired by nature

This new activity is the first of a series of cross-curricular themes linking the arts and sciences. 'Geo-art: paintings to sculptures inspired by all things ‘geo’; create your own geo-artwork'


Much of our great art was and is inspired by the natural world. This activity encourages pupils to create some imaginative artwork based on a topic they have studied in Earth science or geography.
Please email us scans or photos of your pupils' or children's work and we will publish them.
Lots more ideas for holiday activities can be found on our website.


    

Rocks game for the holidays

When the children are collecting pebbles on the beach, perhaps they would like to put them into rock families? Have a look at 'Rock Explorers; putting rocks into families'.


A 5 year-old's explanation of the Black family: “Mummy and Daddy Black are wrinkled with holes in but the children are smooth; that’s because they are young and Mummy and Daddy are old.”
Many more ideas for young children can be found in ELI Early years.
    

Experience an earthquake in your classroom!

This week's new ELI is 'An earthquake in your classroom; a classroom earthquake intensity scale.'

This activity helps pupils to visualise what experiencing an earthquake of different intensities might be like. Dramatic re-enactment of this classroom earthquake intensity scale can make fine school drama performances or add to school open days.
It is worth repeating the old dictum, “Earthquakes don’t kill people; buildings do.”
Many more activities about earthquakes and their causes can be found on the website.
