Lesson Idea Name: Favorite Animal

Content Area: Math
Grade Level(s): 2nd grade
Content Standard Addressed: MGSE2.MD.10 Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to
represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problem
using information presented in a bar graph.

Technology Standard Addressed: 3c. Knowledge Constructor

Selected Technology Tool:

☒ Blog ☐ Wiki ☐ Other: Website Creation Tool (list):

URL(s) to support the lesson (if applicable):

Bloom’s Taxonomy Level(s):

☐ Remembering ☐ Understanding ☐ Applying ☒ Analyzing ☐ Evaluating ☒ Creating

Levels of Technology Integration (LoTi Level):

☐ Level 1: Awareness ☐ Level 2: Exploration ☐ Level 3: Infusion ☐ Level 4: Integration
☒ Level 5: Expansion ☐ Level 6: Refinement

Universal Design for Learning (UDL:

Engagement: Encourage and support opportunities for peer interactions and supports through Think Pair
Representation: I will provide manipulatives or paper cut outs of animals as interactive models that guide
exploration and new understandings.
Action and Expression: Students will interact with accessible materials and tools.

Lesson idea implementation:

The teacher will read the standard off the board. The teacher reminds the students of the Atlanta Zoo activity.
The students had to come up with a way to solve a problem about three types of animals entering the zoo.
The teacher will show the students a picture graph of three animals and how many of each the zoo can
receive. The teacher will also remind the students of the M & M activity they completed. The students sorted
colored M&Ms and created a bar graph. The students will complete a flipped classroom assignment. The
students will ask their family members “What is their favorite animal? and choose the top four. The students
will bring the data to class to create a picture graph. The students can also upload their data to the classroom
blog. The students will work at their table drawing pictures of the top four animals and creating a bar graph at
their table. The teacher will walk around and help assist students. The students will present their picture
graph and display them on the classroom walls. The teacher will assess each students picture graph to see if
each student represented four animals.

Importance of technology:
Using a website -creation tool is critical to the project because sometimes students leave their bookbags at
home. The students could upload their data on the classroom blog, so they can complete the class activity for
the day. The project could be completed without technology but students who leave their backpacks at home
data would be lost. The students will listen to the Audio on blog for the flipped classroom as a learning

Inspiration (optional): I borrowed the concept of about three animals and the combination the Atlanta Zoo
received from Power point. The teacher created a picture graph of the animals and the amount the zoo
received. The teacher and students did an activity using M&Ms to create a bar graph.
Internet Safety and Student Privacy:
At the beginning of the school year, the teacher will get parents’ permission for students to use the blog. The
teacher will also follow all internet safety polices to keep students safe. My classroom blog is password
protected to ensure the safety of my students. Only parents and students will have access to our classroom
blog. Students without parental consent could turn in paper assignments.
Reflective Practice:
To further extend the lesson the teacher could post the students Favorite Animal bar graph on the classroom
blog for the parents to see. The students could look at other classmate’s data to see if there are any
similarities or differences. The students could discuss the information on the blog.
