Here is my 20-30 minute demo lesson for a small group of pre-k students. STANDARD: SCI.PK.5.2.3 Investigate sound, heat, and light energy through one or more of the senses. STUDENT LEARNING OBJECTIVES SWBAT identify basic characteristics of sound (e.g., loud or quiet). SWBAT investigate sound using their sense of hearing. ADAPTATIONS AND ACCOMMODATIONS High level- Student will make prediction about what is inside then check to see if they are correct. Students are given little to no support to determine a match. Low level- Instead of having two groups of containers students will have one group of containers and one set of objects that they can see. Students will match the container to the item. Students can be given hints and support to determine a match. 1. STARTER/ANTICIPATORY SET (5 min.) I will introduce myself and ask students what their names are. I will explain that we are going to investigate sound today but I need them to follow a few rules so that we can get to the fun activity. The rules are: raise your hand if you want to share, make safe choices, use their listening ears and watching eyes. I will start by asking students what they know about sound and our sense of hearing then record it on chart paper. INTRODUCTION OF NEW MATERIAL (Guided Instruction/Procedure/Exploration) (3-5 min.) To begin investigating sound, I will show students the objects we will be working with. We will explore the items by passing them around, looking with our eyes, and listening with our ears, to see if we can figure out: What can make a sound? What doesn’t? GUIDED PRACTICE/EXPLORATION/ACTIVITY (10 min.) First I will model how to play the game and review the rules. Eggs will stay shut and shakes will be gentle. We will take turns and have two tries each. We are trying to find the sound matches. Using two groups of containers with objects in them students will take turns using their sense of hearing to find a match. *If there is more time left students can play again. *If there is a lot of time left we will make predictions of what is inside each pair of eggs* CLOSING (5 min.) Below "what we know about sound" on the chart paper we will add what we learned about sound. Please let me know what you think. If there are areas to improve let me know.
