“Smart Phones, Tablets, and Computers: Communication Devices” Informational Physical Science Bundle

1st Grade • Lesson Plan Bundle

Lesson Plan Description

Engaging for all readers, especially multilingual students learning English, this bundle of lessons is based on Physical Science standards and a text, “Smart Phones, Tablets and Computers,” by Jennifer Kaul. Your students will:

  • Segment 1: determine main topic and key details, discover ways to compare the different communication devices, and classify them according to time periods
  • Segment 2: Analyze the text structure (compare/contrast) and collaboratively create a Venn diagram
  • Segment 3: Create their own 2D or 3D communication device using paper, write down the facts about the newly created device and share this information with the class.
  • Exit tickets: (the work created by the students during each segment) provide you with important feedback to determine instructional next steps.
