This is a 15-25 minute Power Point lesson plan asking the question, How are modified leaves beneficial? It uses only one example, spines. This can be part or your Plant unit, or an extension of your section on Leaves.
The lesson is a hybrid of both AVID and traditional lesson plans with collaborative questioning built into the lesson plan. Students can collaborate with classmates, write in their journal, or raise their hands (virtually or in the brick and mortar classroom) to share their thoughts.
An extension slide is included to scaffold for additional teaching or to extend the lesson.
If you need help with the lesson, I can meet with you via Blackboard, via email or by telephone.
