Action Men And Barbie Dolls

Students read and discuss an article about gender sterotyping and adult attitudes about "boy" and "girl" toys. Then they create a unisex toy box for a family friend who is expecting a baby. They give one toy for each of the first 10 years of the child's life.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
