11 Signage Placement of signage
12 Signage Placement of signage
13 Signage Connect the static and active signage
14 Goals for Northside Elementary Educate the end user about the building
15 Educate the End User
16 Goals for Northside Elementary Integrate sustainability into the required curriculum
17 Understand Educational Styles Delivery and Retention Teachers Deliver content on many levels Visual/Spatial Learner Pictures and Images Auditory Learner Sounds Verbal Learner Speaking Kinesthetic Learner Handson Mathematical Learner Logical Learner
18 Students Retain: Understand Educational Styles Delivery and Retention 10% of what they read 20% of what they hear 30%, if they see visuals and hear an explanation 50%, if they watch someone do something while explaining Almost 90%, if they do the job themselves, even if only as a simulation. Federation of American Scientists (2006): Harnessing the power of video games for learning
19 Lesson Plan Development Kindergarten Unit Example SOCIAL STUDIES SCIENCE MATH K.G.2 Understand the interaction between humans and the environment. K.G.2.1 Explain how people adapt to weather conditions. K.G.2.2 Explain ways people use environmental resources to meet basic needs and wants (shelter, food, clothing, etc.) K.P.2 Understand how objects are described based on their physical properties and how they are used. K.P.2.1 Classify objects by observable physical properties (including size, color, shape, texture, weight and flexibility). K.P.2.2 Compare the observable physical properties of different kinds of materials (clay, wood, cloth, paper, etc) from which objects are made and how they are used. K.MD.3 Classify objects into given categories; count the number of objects in each category and sort the categories by count. K.CC.13 Know number names and the count sequence K.CC.45 Count to tell the number of objects K.CC. 67 Compare numbers K.OA.15 Understand addition as putting together and adding to; and understand subtraction as taking apart and taking from.
20 Lesson Plan Development Kindergarten Unit Example 2013 SCIENCE K.P.2 Understand how objects are described based on their physical properties and how they are used. K.P.2.1 Classify objects by observable physical properties (including size, color, shape, texture, weight and flexibility). K.P.2.2 Compare the observable physical properties of different kinds of materials (clay, wood, cloth, paper, etc) from which objects are made and how they are used.
21 Lesson Plan Development Kindergarten Unit Example 2014 SCIENCE K.P.2 Understand how objects are described based on their physical properties and how they are used. K.P.2.1 Classify objects by observable physical properties (including size, color, shape, texture, weight and flexibility). develop the unit using the 3 Little Pigs to talk about the materials that the pigs used to build each house. This seems like a perfect connection to using the building Any suggestions? K.P.2.2 Compare the observable physical properties of different kinds of materials (clay, wood, cloth, paper, etc) from which objects are made and how they are used.
22 Lesson Plan Development Solution SCIENCE SOCIAL STUDIES K.P.2 Understand how objects are described based on their physical properties and how they are used. K.P.2.1 Classify objects by observable physical properties (including size, color, shape, texture, weight and flexibility). K.P.2.2 Compare the observable physical properties of different kinds of materials (clay, wood, cloth, paper, etc) from which objects are made and how they are used. K.G.2 Understand the interaction between humans and the environment. K.G.2.1 Explain how people adapt to weather conditions. K.G.2.2 Explain ways people use environmental resources to meet basic needs and wants (shelter, food, clothing, etc.)
23 Lesson Plan Development Solution Three Pigs Teaching Science and Social Studies together with a Literacy connection Using the building and common building materials Highlighting the sustainable aspects Folding it into what the teachers are already planning
24 Lesson Plan Development Kindergarten Unit Example MATH K.MD.3 Classify objects into given categories; count the number of objects in each category and sort the categories by count. The Math is ALWAYS there! K.CC.13 Know number names and the count sequence K.CC.45 Count to tell the number of objects K.CC. 67 Compare numbers K.OA.15 Understand addition as putting together and adding to; and understand subtraction as taking apart and taking from.

29 Next Steps Continue the lesson plan development and cross course integration SOCIAL STUDIES SCIENCE MATH 5.G.1 Understand how human activity has and continues to shape the United States. 5.G.1.2 Explain the positive and negative effects of human activity on the physical environment of the United States, past and present. 5.G.1.3 Exemplify how technological advances (communication, transportation and agriculture) have allowed people to overcome geographic limitations. Plans and pictures showing how the school site was different before and after development. Discuss where we grow things in agriculture and school gardens. Discuss waste removal and landfills. Incorporate information on landfill diversion and current composting program. Discuss local material use as method of overcoming geographic limitation 5.P.3 Explain how the properties of some materials change as a result of heating and cooling. 5.P.3.1 Explain the effects of the transfer of heat (either by direct contact or at a distance) that occurs between objects at different temperatures. (conduction, convection or radiation) 5.P.3.2 Explain how heating and cooling affect some materials and how this relates to their purpose and practical applications. Heat transfer: teach when, how, and why the mini blinds should be adjusted. Investigate rooftop garden Investigate heat transfer by creating experiments with different roof top types and colors plants Examine solar hot water system and preheat tank. Explain how heat transfers from sun to glycol to water. Discuss and examine passive solar heating Examine common building materials and reactions to thermal expansion. Discuss mitigation. 5.MD.2 Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit. Use operations on fractions to solve problems involving this information presented in line plot. 5.OA Write and interpret numerical expressions. (5.OA.12); Analyze patterns and relationships (5.OA.3) 5.NBT Understand the place value system (5.NBT.14); Perform operations with multidigit whole numbers and with decimals to hundredths (5.NBT.57) Depending on how data is displayed on the Dashboard  Convert like measurement units within a given measurement system. Understand the place value system Perform operations with multidigit whole numbers and with decimals to hundredths Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to multiply and divide fractions Incorporate water meter locations into word problems covering all operations noted above
30 Next Steps Develop long term and short term projects Garden Roof Analemma (Pattern of the Sun)
31 Next Steps Expand to other schools, higher grades and more advanced course study Social Studies HS Civics and Economics: CE.E.1 Understand economies, markets and the role economic factors play in making economic decisions CE.E.1.1 Compare how individuals and Governments utilize scare resources CE.E.1.4 Analyze the ways in which incentives and profits influence what is produced and distributed in a market economy
