This lesson is part of the unit on plants in K-2 ELL and monolingual classrooms. Students will learn more information from Sunny the sunflower and get a chance to practice complex terminology when they will have to explain the process of photosynthesis. Each of my lessons is designed in a way that when students are engaged in academic discussions during the active engagement part of the lesson, this smoothly transition to writing. In other words, during the active engagement part of the lesson the teacher and students work together to build and develop speaking tools that will be used during writing. Writing, of course, is optional.
The letter from Sunny is also included. To get to know Sunny, you may want to purchase other lessons in this unit!
