Lesson Plan Description

This half day of lesson plans is broken down into 4 separate segments (30-60 minutes each) addressing several ELA Informational standards based around analysis of photographs and 2 informational texts. Your students will use close reading comprehension techniques, and create a book as an analysis of the text (vocabulary, cause and effect, and key details).

  • Segment 1: students will analyze and make judgments about photographs of an unknown location.
  • Segment 2: students will produce a “book”; which includes: cause and effect, vocabulary, and key details.
  • Segment 3: students will analyze a second text source to continue their creation of a book which includes: cause and effect, vocabulary, and key details.
  • BONUS- Segment 4: students will create a visual comparison of glaciers and ice cubes and write a Haiku poem that captures the intent of 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.
