Please see the second posting with the additional documents and the rest of the credit bid.How would I explain this lesson to another person (staff member, parent, student, etc.) in terms of the following:1) Objectives of the Activity2) How the Objectives of the Activity are Met3) Connections of Activity to CA Science Standards 4) Connections of Activity to Cross-curricular Education5) How will student input be used to determine whether the students understand the material (questioning and observing throughout the lesson)?6) How will instructional strategies reflect attention to students characteristics, learning needs, and /or language needs?7) What ideas can you suggest for extending the lesson or for homework?This lesson is Rivers of Babylon, from Project Learning Tree K-8 Environment Education Activity Guide by plt.org.1) Objectives of the Activity:
The objectives of this activity are to cultivate cooperation and communication from students by placing students in teams to collaborate on the assignment. Students are tasked with assessing the factors responsible for causing the collapse of the Babylonian civilization. The students should promulgate their own theories by collaborating in groups to develop a theory on the reason that this civilization died out as well as analyze Americas current trajectory in comparison to the ancient civilization of Babylon. 2) How the Objectives of the Activity are Met
Through research, cognitive thinking skills, and students collaborating with those in their group to develop one collective theoretical framework. 3) Connections of Activity to CA Science Standards
Science and Engineering Practices and Engaging in Argument from Evidence are some of the CA Science Standards that are engaged in with this assignment. Students in grades 3-5 should be able to engage in argument from evidence obtained or researched and progress to critiquing scientific explanations or solutions proposed by their peers by supporting their arguments with relevant evidence about the natural world. This is all provided within the assignment as students must cultivate a collective argument in their group predicated upon their theory about why the Babylonians civilization died out and support this theory with evidence and data. 4) Connections of Activity to Cross-curricular Education
Connections to cross-curricular education are that students must display writing skills as well as reading comprehension to be able to research their topic and write presentations that will be orally given in the classroom.5) How will student input be used to determine whether the students understand the material (questioning and observing throughout the lesson)?
Student input will be analyzed by assessing their group presentations. If the students have understood the material, they will be able to display their knowledge of the subject matter effectively and in easy to follow presentations. 6) How will instructional strategies reflect attention to students characteristics, learning needs, and /or language needs?
Instructional strategies should be predicated upon differentiated instructional methodology. 7) What ideas can you suggest for extending the lesson or for homework?
This lesson plan is precisely what is needed to account for the standards set forth by the CA Science Standards.
