Developing a Sense of Place

Students develop criteria for a scoring guide that will be used as an assessment. They listen as the teacher presents mapping techniques from the "Book of Where." They make a scaled map of the classroom. Students investigate a place of their choice and create a map, collect plant specimens, and create microscopic insect drawings.

Lesson Planet provides plans that are a snap to personalize or utilize as is. Providing rigor and relevance the lessons are an excellent resource. I highly recommend LP for both the new teacher and the well seasoned pedagogue.
