(TE 28) How are rivers and lakes alike? How are they different? (TE 29) Why are ports built on lakes, rivers or oceans? (TE 30) What is the difference between weather and climate? (Review question #3) List two ways the communities use bodies of water.

5. CLOSURE: Discuss the three statements in Review and Assess section of TE 31. F. Assessment: What will you use to measure student understanding? Writing a Poem (TE 30)- Ask students to write a poem that includes facts from the text about a landform, body of water, the climate or the weather. Explain how you will know students understand the concepts from the lesson. Students must distinguish between physical (natural) and human (man-made) features. Writing a poem about these features will show if students understand the characteristics and differences between these features. G. Reflection: 1. Which part of the lesson do you think will be the easiest for you to teach? I think teaching the difference between the different bodies of water will be the easiest part of teaching this lesson. 2. Which part will be most challenging for you to teach? I think the most challenging part of the lesson will be explaining how to write the poem for the assessment. 3. How will you follow up or extend this lesson? I will follow up or extend this lesson by using the extend lesson in the teachers edition on pages 32 and 33. 4. What can you do for students who dont grasp the concepts? I can use a graphic organizer to reteach the concepts we learned as suggested in the teachers edition on page 31. 5. Which part of the lesson, if any, do you think might need to change? I do not think there is any part of the lesson that might need to change. 6. When you were writing this lesson plan, what was the most difficult part? The most difficult part of writing this lesson was not having the book in front of me. It was very difficult for me to try to read the online textbook.
