Are you looking for a fun way to have students practice integrating information from two texts? This product was popular for the August 2017 Solar Eclipse, but can still be used anytime!
Includes: LESSON PLAN, RIGOROUS LITERACY activities, and a POWERPOINT!
This lesson is for that literacy teacher wanting to INTEGRATE SCIENCE or that science teacher wanting to INTEGRATE LITERACY in a student-directed fashion!!!
My lesson plan provides differentiation ideas too! I geared it towards 4TH GRADE, but can be accommodated for 3-6th grades.
Reading: CCSS RI.4.6 Integrate information from two texts on the same topic in order to write or speak about the subject knowledgeably.
Science: SPI.0407.6.2 Infer that the moons phases are caused by the revolution of the moon and earth around the sun.
TSW Integrate information from two texts about solar eclipses in order to write and speak about these events knowledgeably.
TSW Explain how solar eclipses occur and how they differ from lunar eclipses.
1. Lesson Plan (Editable) includes links to two articles and a video 3 PAGES
*********************Articles are related to the August 21, 2017 solar eclipse*************
2. PowerPoint (Editable version included too) 20 SLIDES
3. Text Time Questions (Editable) 5 PAGES
4. KWL Chart 1 PAGE
5. Choice Board Activity (Editable) 1 PAGE
6. Choice Board Rubric (Editable) 1 PAGE
7. ***SUPPLEMENTAL Diagrams with Questions for after the lesson :)
I recommend having students start their Choice Board Activity on the following day, and giving them a few more to complete it during their independent learning time.
*Note the PowerPoint is for the delivery and pacing of lesson...not for lecturing or teaching the material because the students LEARN through reading and during the activities. However, there is a supplemental video provided in the PPT for those visual learners!
The PPT will be your precious tool to keep both you and students on track during break out sessions and discussions.
This would make a great lesson for EVALUATIONS!
