Exploring Parts and Wholes

Students make accurate and interesting statments about how parts of something are related to the whole thing. To begin the lesson, students have to identify as many parts of a toy dumptruck as they can and find the part they find most interesting. Then they answer questions about it and find out how that specific part relates and helps the whole toy function appropriately.

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.
