Third graders examine primary sources of students jumping, or skipping rope. In this physical education lesson, 3rd graders compare activities from then and now. Additionally, students describe various scenes or scenarios within the pictures. Students are encouraged to create their own photo journal of play/sport interests.
Combining art, music, dance, and reading comprehension, this lesson plan is geared to reach all ability levels. After reading a variety of fables and discussing story elements and character traits, class members select a moral to use as the basis of their own fable about two characters, one with foibles and one without. Your fabulists then collaborate on a class mural, a music composition, and a dance which reflect the traits of characters in their stories. Document it all on a class website.
After a brief definition of idioms, you will find three multiple-choice questions to test student understanding of different expressions. At the end of the PowerPoint, there is a list of more common idioms and their meanings and a list of additional references. A good introduction to idioms, but only nine common idioms are explained here.
Students explore the relationships of space through movement. Two perform movement improvisation based on over/under. The activity improves hand-eye coordination, cooperation, and communication skills. The timing of the dance also increases abilities to judge spatial distances.
