Bloom’s Taxonomy Category in the Cognitive Domain:

Grade Level:

All levels, with adaptations for elementary school.

Materials Needed:

Transparency, PowerPoint, or copies of Student Instructions for every student in the class. See PDF link below


  1. Instruct student to take out vocabulary lists they already have or hand out five new vocabulary words to them
  2. Place the transparency with the Student Instructions on the overhead, or distribute copies of the instructions. Since this lesson has quite a few things going on at the same time, I’d recommend making copies for every student so they have a reference.
  3. Review instructions, answering questions and going over rubric.
  4. Give them the rest of class except the last three minutes to work on their projects.
  5. Vocabulary Picture Books due on your assigned date.

Review – Last Three Minutes:

Ask students to tell the person sitting next to them:

  1. The five vocabulary words they chose
  2. At least two links they came up with for two of the vocabulary words


Grade the assignment according to the rubric
