Primary worksheets on the topic of the black panther designed for primary school students. A basic passage with questions at the end to answer, testing the students comprehension levels.
The term panther has been used to described three different kinds of big cats, the leopard, jaguar, and cougar. Panthers are mammals that can reach 7 to 8 feet in length and can weigh anywhere from 100 to 250 pounds.
There is no such thing as a black panther, they are actually just leopards or jaguars that have a black colour mutation! This turns their gold fur to black to match their spots, making their whole coat black.
It is rare for the mutation to happen. It is even possible to see panthers turn completely white, an opposite effect! The opposite mutation gives the panther a large disadvantage as it cannot camouflage itself when hunting, leading to starvation.
When teaching a new concept to a student, make it as visual as possible. Concepts become more comprehensible. A standard lesson should follow this basic structure:
- Introduction: gather what knowledge the students have on the topic. Assess and evaluate your level to base how much assistance they require throughout the lesson
- Concept: teaching the actual topic of the lesson. Highlight the difficulty the students are having and apply the appropriate action. For example, if they do not understand the meaning of a word, get them to highlight it for further studying in the future.
- Evaluation: conclude the lesson by getting the students to feedback what you have taught. Ensure they comprehend the topic and know the main points.
Build the confidence level of students through active participation. Encourage projects for them to do what they have learnt into practical use. The more engaging the lesson is, the better the result.
