Lesson Plan Guide

Teacher Candidate: Rachel Scarlett Date: November 26, 2017

Grade and Topic: 3rd Grade Science Length of Lesson: 60 minutes for 4 days

Mentor Teacher: Peggy Murdock and Marla Phillips School: University of Memphis IDT 3600

UNIT/CHAPTER OBJECTIVE/GENERALIZATION/BIG IDEA:


This lesson plan is part of a unit plan on life cycles of complex organisms.

LESSON OBJECTIVE:
Given required materials, students will create a graphic organizer demonstrating their research on the
life cycle of a flowering plant with a score of 5 out of 5 on the rubric. (Blooms Taxonomy: Synthesis,
application, analysis)
Given required materials, students will complete a fill in the blank quiz on the life cycle of flowering
plants with a score of 25 out of 25 on the rubric. (Blooms Taxonomy: Knowledge, comprehension,
application)
The goal of this lesson is for students to explain the life cycle of flowering plants by applying what they
have researched. The student will be creating a graphic organizer by using a computer to access websites
needed for research, imagery, and the Web 2.0 tool, Creately, to complete the activity. Also, the student
will recall information during this lesson by completing a fill in the blank quiz.

Students will use the websites stated above for research, imagery, and creation required for the Life Cycle of
Flowering Plants Graphic Organizer lesson, and to complete the Life Cycle of Flowering Plants Fill in the
Blank Quiz. The Web 2.0 tool, Creately, will be used to type, format, and add an image to the Life Cycle of
Flowering Plant Graphic Organizer activity. Upon completing the activity, students will save and print their
work before turning in the activity.

BACKGROUND and RATIONALE:


Students will demonstrate a clear understanding of the life cycle of flowering plants by providing
visual representation with written phrases and correctly answering the questions on the quiz.
This is a continuation of an earlier standard.

PROCEDURES AND TIMELINE:


Introduction:
Begin by displaying an image of the life cycle of flowering plants diagram.
Using the same image, provide information about the life stages of flowering plants.
Next, inform and explain about the Life Cycle of Flowering Plants Graphic Organizer activity that they
will perform starting on Wednesday. Also, inform and explain about the quiz that the students will
complete from this lesson on Friday.
