This is a best selling lesson that focuses on connecting to and building on background knowledge, and reacting to information and objects.
During a unit of study on Native Americans, children will read a magical and mysterious story about an Algonquin Indian girl. The children will use Post-it notes to record their text-to- text and text-to-self connections related to the story. Students will learn that connecting helps us to use what we already know to deepen our understanding and learn new information.
This lesson contains the following activities:
1. What's in the bag? This activity will allow students to practice using this strategy by exploring objects.
2. Activity number two allows students to use art to draw their connections.
3. Activity number three allows students to use sticky notes to show their connections.
