observed lesson Bears (science)

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by Teacher1212, Feb 13, 2011.

  1. Any ideas on how I could link science and bears together in a lesson. Obviously science comes under kuw in eyfs but the science co-ordinator is coming to observe all staff in this area. Our current topic is bears so I am trying to link both together!!
  2. Maybe looking at materials that are used for making teddies and comparing to another contrasting toy (plastic doll)? Choose from a selection of materials to make a teddy collage picture?
    Making cakes or jelly for a teddy bears' picnic?
    Building a bridge so that the teddy bears can cross the river to get to the woods?
    Building sailing boats which could carry compare bears across the river - how do they float? How do they move?

    Making porridge - changing states of materials and exploring the textures. I know it's an old one, but never fails to work, and is easily connected to Bears and Goldilocks.

    The class bear was left outsdie all night and he is now frozen! (spray with water and put in freezer until lesson)! How can we warm him up?
    Make clothes/put him somewhere warm.
    We did this last year and the kids loved it! They made junk modelling hair dryers! Some made clothes and blankets. Lots of language too - freezing/cold/melting etc

    For Ofsted we preprepared a teddy bear - lightly sprayed with water then put in the freezer
    On the day of the activity teddy was placed outdoors for the children to find. He was brought in and a discussion took place about where had he come from and why he was so icy cold. The teacher suggested they should warn him up and the children explored ways of making him feel better - a warm blanket - hot chocolate - sitting near the radiator - a hot water bottle - a wooly hat ans scarf were some of the suggestionsI can remember. This led into discussing the importance of keeping warm in cold weather.
