ELA:

Building our students’ ability to infer, analyze and collaborate can be challenging for sure.  Help your students build strong collaborative habits through  strategic and collaborative partnerships using the fable “The Crow and the Pitcher”.  Your students will:

• Segment 1: students will ask and answer questions to determine the key details that support the who, what, where, when, why and how of a fable.
• Segment 2: students will recount the fable using writing and illustrations by creating a graphic novel.
• Segment 3: students will determine the lesson(s) of the fable using their graphic novels and key details from the text.

These lessons can be taught over the span of a half day or you can use the lessons independently, broken up over several days.

Math:

This bundle of lesson plans is broken down into 3 separate segments (30-60 minutes each) addressing Numbers and Operations in Base Ten: place value rounding to the nearest tens place or hundreds place.
