    I am a student at a masters and credential program in California and one of my projects in my diversity course is creating a lesson plan for 60-90 minutes for the class you would like to teach in the future. I want to teach 3rd grade, so I was wondering if anyone has suggestions for topics or any activities that went well or always a hit with 3rd graders???

    If you are willing to help. :)

    Thank you in advance

    To clarify, does it need to be diversity related?

    I could come up with some ideas if you narrow down the topic a little bit. What subject were you thinking?

    If it's something diversity related, you could always do a lesson on the various holidays celebrated in December.

    Similar idea- when we studied Asia earlier in the year I did a compare and contrast lesson on Diwali and Chinese New Year. There were some pretty easy connections between the two for students to make and obvious differences. Compare and contrast is big in our reading/writing curriculum and it also supported our social studies curriculum in which students study communities around the world. Age appropriate information on the two holidays was easy to find online.

    One of my favorite things about 3rd grade is the chapter books. You could choose a chapter book you love and do so many things with it.
    - Review previous chapter
    - Make predictions
    - Read the chapter out loud (each child reads a paragraph)
    - Ask comprehension question, including critical thinking
    - Draw a picture
    - Write about "what would you do if?"
    - Write a diamante poem, starting with a word bank of nouns, verbs, and adjectives from the chapter
    - Vocabulary games from the chapter
    - etc.
