Transparency, PowerPoint, or copies of Student Instructions for every student in the class. See PDF link below
- Instruct student to take out vocabulary lists they already have or hand out five new vocabulary words to them
- 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.
- Review instructions, answering questions and going over rubric.
- Give them the rest of class except the last three minutes to work on their projects.
- Vocabulary Picture Books due on your assigned date.
Review – Last Three Minutes:
Ask students to tell the person sitting next to them:
- The five vocabulary words they chose
- At least two links they came up with for two of the vocabulary words
Grade the assignment according to the rubric
