This product contains two language arts lesson plans, 12 strategies related to this summer camp's theme, and a literary theme park. The lesson plans were created for a 4th grade classroom. One lesson plan tasks students with using their analyzing skills to determine the genre of a book. The second lesson plan introduces students to the 4 types of sentences and involves a simple and quick science experiment to use as the topic for children to test their newly gained knowledge on the different types of sentences.
This unit was constructed to fit the summer camp's theme which is 'Aiming High in Aviation." The strategies are all related to the summer camp's theme, but most can be adapted to fit other topics. A literary theme park is a more creative and interesting version of a book report and requires students to create a theme park, rides, and stores inspired by the book. There is even a small section in the assignment to use their persuasive writing skills!
