Addresses Social Studies Lesson Plan Summary of the Lesson Plan: This is a second grade social studies lesson designed to teach students that locations all have a specific address. This lesson uses the Houghton Mifflin Social Studies textbook Neighborhoods (p. 66-67). Target Population: Second Grade Students at all learning levels. Whole group reading and individual assessment. Materials: Houghton Mifflin Social Studies textbook Neighborhoods. Paper, computers, colored pencils, pencils, pen, stamps, envelopes, markers Standard: G6.2.6 Show that different locations have different addresses. Student Friendly Objective: I can show that different places have different addresses. Procedure: 1. Read together as a class pg.66-67 Ask the students if they think everyone has the same exact address and do they know their address? Ask the students why they think its beneficial that we have different addresses? Explain to the students that everyone has different addresses. This is important so that when someone sends something to an address; it gets to the right person. Ask them if they have ever had anything sent to them in the mail. 2. The teacher will then have the students think of a toy that they have had that they either loved or one that they were really disappointed with for some reason. Tell them that they will be writing a letter to this toy company to thank them for making such a great toy or explaining to this company why they were disappointed. Give the students 15 minutes to look on the computer and find an address for this toy company. Once they find an address the teacher will call on a few students to read their addresses aloud and the teacher will write them on the board. The teacher will then show the students that different places have different addresses. The students will then write a letter to the address they chose. It must be a total of 8 sentences. The teacher will go around the room and briefly read what each student wrote in their letter.

Addresses Social Studies Lesson Plan The students are encouraged to ask them to write back to them if they have time. 3. The teacher will then pass out envelopes. As a class the teacher will explain how to correctly label an envelope. The teacher will collect all of the envelopes once they are all filled out completely. The teacher will read each letter individually after class to make sure they are all appropriate. The teacher will then send all of the childrens letters out. 4. Closure: Students will tell the class what they have learned about an address. Assessment: The teacher will assess the students when they pick out which address they are going to send their letter to so ultimately being able to determine and find an address. The teacher will also see how well students follow directions when they see their envelopes. Reflection: Which part of the lesson do you think will be the easiest for you to teach? The easiest part will be explaining that different places have different addresses because I think that they will be familiar with how the mail works. Which part will be most challenging for you to teach? I think the most difficult part will be explaining how to label the envelopes and finding addresses on the computer. 2nd graders might have a tough time doing this part. In all likelihood, they will need full support. How will you follow up or extend this lesson? One way you could extend this lesson is by putting their own address on an envelope and write a letter to their mom for Valentines Day. What can you do for students who dont grasp the concepts? I would work with them individually. Which part of the lesson, if any, do you think might need to change? The part where they look on the computer for addresses might need to be changed. This part might be tricky. I may need to tweak that. When you were writing this lesson plan, what was the most difficult part? The most difficult part was coming up with the idea of who to write to.
