PART I: PLANNING
Title of LessonAir Pollution- Can you breathe?
SourceIs this lesson original idea? If not, from what source did I borrow this lesson?Teacher Inspired
Subject Area (s)Science
Standard 5-4: The student will demonstrate an understanding of properties of matter. (Physical Science). 5-4.8 Explain how the mixing and dissolving of foreign substances is related to the pollution of the water, air, and soil.
Description and Background Information
Describe the lessons activities and content to provide a clear overview of the lesson. The lesson begins with each student receiving a cover mask so that their mouth and nose are covered. The progression of the lesson follows with the teacher asking students a simple question Can you breathe?. Students answer the question with a simple yes, no, some say little bit. The teacher explains why they were given a face mask; the teacher explains that in some parts of the world this is a very common thing due to air pollution. Various pictures are shown to students to build a visual recognition.
What will students be able to do at the conclusion of this lesson? Make sure that your objective(s) are measurable. At the conclusion of the lesson students will be able to Explain how the mixing and dissolving of foreign substances is related to the pollution of the water, air, and soil.
Varying Objectives for Individuals Needs
How will I vary these objectives for students who do not understand the material? I will vary objectives with the use of peer tutoring, I will look to pair a weaker student with a stronger student. My hopes is that the weaker student will learn from the stronger student progress.How will I vary these objectives for students who have already mastered the concept?I will vary objectives with the use of peer tutoring, I will look to pair a stronger student with a weaker student. My hopes is that the stronger student will learn from the weaker student progress.
How will I vary these objectives for students who are presently learning English?
Statement of PurposeWhy is it important for the students to learn this content?It is important that students know this content because it is a standard that needs to be covered according to SC State Science Standards.
Materials and Resources
What materials and supplies are needed to help your students achieve the stated objectives? What will the teacher need? What will the students need? What other resources are needed? Will you use resource speakers? Teacher needs: Microsoft PowerPoint, YouTube, Facemasks, and Science Pass Coach bookStudent needs: Notebook, Science Pass Coach book, and Pencils
What will you do to motivate the students and get their attention? What is the hook that will serve as a focus for the lessons activities? The distribution of facemasks to each student will serve as a hook to get students ready for the lesson on Air Pollution.
Part II: IMPLEMENTATIONPre-assessment
How will I find out what students already know about this topic? I will use various methods of questioning to find out what students already know.
Teacher Modeling or DemonstrationWhat will I do to show students what is expected? The teacher will model to students different parts of the world where air pollution is at its most prevalent. The teacher will also model what air pollution is in its literary definition.
Guided PracticeWhat will we do together as they learn how to succeed at the new task? The teacher and student will view and discuss various causes and effects of air pollution.
Checking for UnderstandingWhat questions will you ask to determine if students understand so far? What techniques or strategies will be used to determine if students understand so far? I would use an informal assessment where I ask students questions using the stages of Blooms Taxonomy. Can you name a form of air pollution? Can you provide an example of where air pollution may come from?
Independent PracticeWhat will students do by themselves to show that they have internalized the knowledge? Problems from the PowerPoint. Students will complete work independently in their Science Pass Coach book.
ClosureHow will I conclude the lesson and relate it to future experiences? How will you wrap up the lesson to reinforce concepts taught during the lesson? Each student will stand up, line up, and walk outside with their masks on to see if Air pollution is bad enough to which they need the mask. Students are to see can they breathe without the mask while standing outside.
Assessment(attach to lesson plan)What will students do to demonstrate what they have learned? Students will complete a standards practice worksheet from out of the Pass Coach book.
Extension ActivitiesWhat can students do at home or in the classroom to apply the knowledge or skills? How could you use your colleagues or community agencies to improve student performance? Students will be assigned homework which they are to google the five worst air polluted places in the world.
TechnologyHow will you use technology to assist students with learning the concepts? What technology will you use to enhance the delivery and comprehension of your content? I will use Microsoft PowerPoint and Youtube as my main sources of technology.
Connection Across the CurriculumHow will you connect this lesson with other content areas across the curriculum?
The Arts: Teacher plans as a guided practice activity students draw different types of air pollution.
Health: Teacher plans as a guided practice activity where use iPads to google the effects of air pollution on the human body.
Physical Education: Teacher plans as a guided practice activity where students go outside to look for evidence on the playground of air pollution.
PART III: REFLECTION
StrengthsDescribe the strengths of your instructional techniques, strategies and classroom management.Describe the strengths of student engagement.
Strengths of the lesson consisted of students being drawn in with a solid hook at the beginning, interesting worldly facts during the middle of the lesson, solid videos throughout, and a closure activity that allowed students the chance to observe the concept in a real world environment.
WeaknessesDescribe the weaknesses of your instructional techniques, strategies and classroom management. Describe the weaknesses of student engagement.
The weaknesses included not enough masks for the large class size, a couple of videos were not played due to being blocked under district regulations.
Suggestions for ImprovementWhat would you change when teaching this lesson again? I would change the fact that I ran out of face masks for the large class size and I would also look to download the videos I wanted the night before so they would be ready for the day before.
