Lesson Planning by Me

I have just created my first lesson plan in great detail.  In the past I have used prepackaged curricula, usually the type I can just pick up and read the next bit.  Not very creative, huh?  Well, I have at least two children in my school room who will appreciate learning with more guts and at least a different two who will like a hands on approach.  This is my first science lesson laid out.  I hope I remembered everything.  :-)



Science Week One Lesson Plan
Lesson Overview
Lesson Title
Human Body - Skeleton
Lesson Summary
Learn about skeleton, bones and joints, what they do, how they look, where they are, what they are made of
Subject Area(s)

Science

Aim
Student Objectives/

Other Resources
and Activities

Lesson Details
Introduction
Prior Knowledge, Hook for New Information
- Ask boys to find the bony parts of their bodies and tell me the name of the bones if they know them
- Ask the boys what bones do, write up on whiteboard
Lesson
- Read pp 18-19 The Skeleton UCBHB, discuss
- Show images on development of long bones pg. 22 PA, different shapes of vertebra pg. 26 PA, arm bones pg 12 LLS3, leg bones pg 13 LLS3
- Read pp 20-21 Joints UCBHB, discuss
- Read Lesson 8 GDLHB Joints


Activities
- Inside a Long Bone Pg 27 B&G physical examination of bone
- Listen to LLS3CD Track 2, use lyric sheet if necessary to understand all the words
- Identify types of joints from Lego pieces and around the house


Independent Activities
- Read pp 9-15 independently and do worksheet - The Skeletal System worksheet pg. 7 LLS3WB Jackson and Harry
- Worksheet Label Your Framework pg. 3 RAHB Jackson and Harry
- Worksheet The Leg Bone’s Connected to the Hip Bone pg. 6 RAHB Jackson and Harry
- After Inside a Long Bone activity - Worksheet Your Bones pg. 7 RAHB (all boys)
- create lap booking pieces to be filed for later assembly as lapbook


Conclusion
- Put together skeleton (GDLHB) and attach to a page for binder
- Place lap booking pages in binder to be assembled into lapbook later
- Place completed worksheets into binder
- Do a quick verbal quiz on skeleton and identify major bones and main functions of the skeleton
- Quick verbal quiz on joints and be able to point out different joint types in our bodies and the man-made world
- Visit to Sciencentre for short term feature - Humanoid Discovery and do the associated activities
- Visit ongoing display at Sciencentre and look at the skeleton in the closet, see what the boys have retained from the lesson
Assessment of Lesson
Before Lesson
Teacher- Preparation - Goals clearly defined, materials and resources ready?





During Lesson
Students - Were they able to complete the activities?  Was the material at the right level for them?
