Science, language arts, and math need not be stand-alone subjects, providing disconnected bits of information. These lessons integrate learning in multiple subject areas, helping students better learn and retain knowledge and skills.
In these lessons, students will be engaged, active, and interacting with one another to explore the following essential questions:
1. What are my body parts on my face?
2. What can I do with these body parts?
3. How can I use the body parts on my face to communicate?
4. How can I show what I know?
5. How are my body parts and other students' body parts similar and different?
6. How can I show what I know?
This lessons are auditory, visual, and kinesthetic with literature connections (read alouds) and songs to make it engaging and incredibly fun. Depending on the knowledge level of the class it can easily be scaffolded up or down. This is also a great for ESL/EFL/ELL students at any age who are willing to be silly and have fun learning body part and action verb vocabulary.
The activity can easily be extended for use in independent centers following this lesson, so this knowledge can be owned and built on by the students for the remainder of the unit.
Note: This lesson is can be taught as a stand alone lesson, but it is also part of a bundled lessons document titled Body Parts, Communication/Movement - Bundled Lesson Plans - Science, LA, Math. The bundled lesson plans are available for a discounted price compared to buying each lesson separately.
