VII. Instructional Procedures

a. Set: (What will you do to introduce the content/SKILL of the lesson?)

At the beginning of class, the instructor will once again use the book Ten Little Night Stars as a springboard for discussion. Instructor and class will do a quick recap of last session's activities. After that, the teacher will tell the kids that they need to grab a copy of the book for their groups and that we will be utilizing it today.

b. Body: Use the Gradual Release Model to describe how you will teach your lesson. Be specific in each section below. Demonstrate STRATEGIES. Use this section as your “script” for your lesson.

i. Modeled Instruction / Demonstrate: “I do it – you watch”

The educator will choose a creature at random. Then pick an animal and reflect on it. Context clues will be used by the educator to determine the native range of the animal in question.

ii. Shared Instruction / Guide: “We do it – together”

This is a one-and-done event for both of us.

We use the climate zone map to help us zero in on a certain location. Example: penguins require low temperatures, hence they can only exist in environments with abundant ice. To see whether there are any very icy spots. The global map is used. Our team locates and eliminates all but the coldest of locations. After we locate the animal's habitat. We double-check everything in the computer lab to make sure it's right. In addition to picking up an interesting tidbit about the region. Then, use the blank map to add the animal's habitat and an interesting tidbit about it.

iii. Collaborative Learning: “You do it together – I watch/facilitate”

Students will work in groups to determine the country of origin for seven different animals. making use of the supplied manual and supporting materials. Aiming to get the necessary education material. After that, each group will head to the computers to double-check their work. After that, each team will return to their desk to complete the blank map.

iv. Independent Practice / Independent Learning: “You do it alone”

Independently, students will reflect on the day's lessons by writing about their two favorite topics: the animals they met and the countries they visited.

c. Closure: (How will you summarize the content of the lesson?)

In this activity, students will report on their individual experiences and practices.

VIII. Assessment: (How will you assess that the students met your objective? The assessment MUST connect to the objective and the standard)

The students will be asked questions about the animals in the book and their native countries (such as, "Where is the elephant from?"). Where do you live, and what is the weather like there? Tell me anything interesting and unusual about that country. For each species described herein.

IX. Home Learning: (optional, would your students benefit from revisiting some element of your lesson at home?)

X. References: (Include any links to book readings, websites, citations of storybooks/textbooks, etc., you used to complete this lesson plan here)
