In three activities, this differentiated lesson probes and pushes student knowledge about the nature and camping themes, especially those covered in McDougell Littell and Pearson-Prentice Hall.
Activity three takes student inside a tent, opens the flap for them to see outside, and then asks them to react to the weather, time of day, and/or terrain. The students can then state whether they need a flashlight, umbrella, boots, a fishing pole, etc. in that situation.
The more challenging Activity two (with a warmup in Act. 1) has students see a married couple looking outside their tent, only to see all manner of animals and surroundings. The couple then bring out something from inside the tent as a reaction to what they have seen. They offer bananas to a monkey, crackers to a parrot, and pull out an umbrella in the rain. Sometimes, however, they make bad decisions, too, and your students will laugh and enjoy the chance to describe their folly.
