Provide access to new vocabulary words (envy and mysteriously) in context as emerging readers listen to Leo Lionni's Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse. Explain these terms before reading the story aloud and help kids utilize context clues by asking them to raise hands when they hear one. A graphic organizer is attached.
A hands-on lesson using the TI-CBR Motion Detector to provide information to graph and analyze. The class uses this information to calculate the slope of motion graphs and differentiate scalar and vector quantities. There is a real-world activity of a Roof Manufacturer's Test in regards to the pitch of roofs, as well as several other real-world scenarios.
Learners read a book and observe the wind and how it affects the environment. They explore what wind does by looking at pictures, reading a book, and by completing an experiment. They will use their own knowledge of the wind and compare it with the new information they obtain. In addition, they have the opportunity to experiment with many different objects on a windy day to see how the winds affects these objects.
The wind is an amazing renewable energy source your students should know about! Get those 5th graders exploring the Internet and conducting a series of experiments so they become convinced that the wind is an amazing thing. The full day-by-day procedure, activities, web activity, and video link is included.
Learners explore English by reading a children's book in class. In this story vocabulary lesson, students read the book Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse and discuss the use of three vocabulary words. Learners define the selected vocabulary terms and utilize them in a word play activity.
Investigate the prospect of wind as a renewable resource. Second and third graders make a pinwheel, answer critical thinking questions, and then attempt to use wind power to wind string. I would be more apt to use this lesson in a 1st or 2nd grade class than for 3rd graders.
Incredibly informative, but overly wordy, this PowerPoint walks viewers through the process of wind erosion, attempts to arrest crop-driven loss of topsoil, and the different types of wind erosion. Have your earth science class read through the slides at home. Create a worksheet to accompany the presentation, and then discuss the information in class.
