Pupils listen to a teacher reading of The Little Red Hen, identify the story elements and sequence them. They talk about different jobs associated with providing food and act out a play based on the story. Be aware that although several Common Core standards are listed by the publisher, they do not give specifics about how each portion of the lesson might meet them. You will need to think through this if you are working on the Common Core.
Learners complete multi-curricular activities for fractions, weather, rhyming words, the writing process, and a science journal. First, pupils read a poem and observe the weather to complete a weather chart. They brainstorm about the weather and complete a weather prediction activity using weather symbols. They also complete a thermometer activity, a rhyming words activity, and cause and effect activity.
What a great way to discuss the rainforest! Learners discuss the importance of adaptation in the environment and how it is linked to survival. They use critical thinking and inference skills to place animals and insects in the different strata of the rainforest based on diet, body modification, and prior knowledge.
Earth science explorers design an experiment to demonstrate that the albedo of a surface affects its temperature. They test to find out if moisture on the surface affects temperature. They discover whether or not concrete or asphalt heat any differently from natural landscaping. Apply this super series of exercises to your climate change curriculum.
Students examine the giant squid and its habitat. In this giant squid lesson plan, students discover the size, behavior, and natural habitat of the giant squid. Activities range from scientific information to myths and folklore. Students develop their own giant squid expedition after learning about the technology available to study the giant squid.
Students explore cycles in nature. In this cross curriculum agriculture lesson, students define "cycle" and research weather and planting folklore. Students make a bracelet in which individual colored beads represent the many "cycles" of life, including people, water, plants, soil, day, night, air, and sun. Students participate in an experiment or website activity, read related text, or sing a song for each of these cycles. Background information for the teacher is included.
Students explore Earth science by examining their local weather. In this precipitation lesson, students identify the chances of rain based on which season it is and sing songs about rain together. Students create several artistic representations of rain including a water painting.
