It’s World Cup soccer time again and we’ve got some fantastic resources on LearningGrids
– so celebrate the occasion and get your students working on their language arts and math skills at the same time!
Whether your focus is on the soccer
competition itself or on learning about the host country of Brazil
, you will find some great activities appropriate for all ages – and right across our range of software tools (including Clicker 6
, and the Clicker Apps
). Many of the resources feature brand new graphics too. Whatever the age or ability of your students, there is plenty to engage and motivate them in learning through this topic.
With brand new, beautiful illustrations, Brazil – Read
will help your students to learn about the geography, people, and culture of the fascinating country which plays host to the competition this year. After reading the book, students can also create their own written
books about Brazil. For students who require structured writing support, try the sentence building
activity, or use the topic word banks
to support your more confident writers.
Sticking with the World Cup theme, of course there are lots of soccer-based activities too - from matching
activities for younger students, to activities where students can sort competing countries alphabetically
or track the teams’ progress
during the 2014 World Cup games. Get your students writing generally about a soccer game or about the World Cup competition specifically, using the word banks Soccer Game Words
and World Cup Soccer Words
. These are great for encouraging independent writers to use wider, topic-specific vocabulary!
There are Wordbars about Brazil
and World Cup Soccer
to support older students in their written work on these topics too.
To find all of these, and many more resources to support this and other topic work this summer, simply search on LearningGrids
