Create a Lesson Plan

Your mission is to create a lesson plan. It can be for any grade level (1-6) and should be a science lesson. 

It does not have to be a part of the unit you created. It does need to address these four questions:

  • What am I teaching?
  • Who am I teaching?
  • How will I teach it?
  • How will I know if the students understand?

You can use whatever format you want. Just make sure you include your answers to those questions.

DO NOT Google lesson plan ideas. Figure out what you want to teach and how you want to do it.

Then, submit your lesson plan on Pace Commons and use this tag: #mycoollessonplan

Your lesson plan is due today, Wednesday October 31st.

      Lesson Plan: Teaching Grade 6 Science

      Topic I am teaching: Food Webs

      Objective: Students will be able to identify organisms as producers, consumers, and decomposers, and will be able to arrange animals into a food web. 

      I will provide various tools for students to understand the material so they will be able to complete the above objective. For example, I will teach students about the above topics and food webs by a powerpoint presentation in which they will take notes. Students will also be give homework, and in class quizzes on this topic to make sure they are comprehending the information. 

      If the students are able to meet the above objective and label a food web correctly I will know they understand the material. 

      Lesson:

      The teacher will first show a presentation about food chains/food webs and have the students take notes. Then the teacher will show an example of a food chain that contains the sun. The teacher will explain to the students how the sun is the most important aspect of the food chain. "The sun's energy is used by the plant to PRODUCE it's own food" Then the teacher will explain what each word: producer, consumer, and decomposer means. 

      The students will then be given a different food web with some missing parts. They will have to label the parts of the food web that are the producer, consumer, and decomposer, as well as filling in the blanks. If the students are not able to do so the teacher will provide assistance and guidance.

        Kat,

        This is an interesting lesson plan.

        I am wondering how you could depth to this lesson. Right now, they are learning something and then need to repeat it. How could you extend that?
