Lesson Plans

Forces: Pushing and Pulling:

This lesson demonstrates how students can use cause and effect to describe how objects move using a push or pull (forces). The students will understand that forces put objects in motion and that a strong force could change the direction and speed of an object.

Type: Lesson Plan

Could a Wolf Really Blow a Pig’s House Down?:

In this lesson, students will be animal investigators on a mission to learn all about pigs and wolves. With prompting and support from the teacher, students will read an informational text about pigs (Pigs by Robin Nelson) and wolves (Wolves by Michael Dahl). They will use information gathered to contribute to a class discussion about the characteristics of real pigs and wolves. Then, the teacher will read The Three Little Pigs (written by Anne Walters and Daniel Postgate) to the students and help them complete a Venn diagram comparing what they observed in The Three Little Pigs to what they know to be true of real pigs and wolves. In order to determine mastery of the concept, the students will complete a picture sort of Real and Imaginary Pigs and Wolves. At the end of the lesson, students will be able to explain how they make an informed decision about whether an animal is real or imaginary.
