Lesson Plan Description
This half day of lesson plans is broken down into 3 separate segments (30-60 minutes each) addressing several ELA standards using an informational text “Firefighters”.

- Segment 1: students will use informational text features to understand the meaning of new words and define the role of an informational writer.
- Segment 2: students will use a bubble map to describe a firefighter by their character traits.

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