3 Lesson Plan No 1: Mystery Objects (cont.) Students will collect data by counting how many times the bean jumps in a minute at room temperature. They will do this three times. They will then count the amount of jumps a bean makes on a heating pad for one minute. They will do this three times, but they should remove the bean from the pad in between trials. The students will then find the mean/average for both the room temperature and the heated trials. They will use the averages to compare the data. Finally, the students will analyze the data and draw a conclusion by answering the following questions: Did your jumping bean larva jump more at room temperature or warmer temperature? Why do you think that is so? If you have time, compare the results from the other students to see if all the students had the same conclusion. n EVALUATION/ ASSESSMENT For this lesson, I require that the students write at least 3 things they learned about the Mystery Beans in the L part of their OWL Chart. I also give them credit if they have at least 10 observations and 5 wonderings on their OWL chart. I also assess the lab to make sure it is completed correctly and completely. H H H

4 Lesson Plan No 1: Mystery Objects (cont.) Additional Information

6 Lesson Plan No 2: Moth and Butterflies (cont.) Notebook Software Project: The students are then put in pairs to do their final project. They are to choose either a butterfly or a moth to do a short presentation on. I model an example of a project using Notebook software. Students are to use two sources for their project. One source should be an encyclopedia (either World Book Online or an encyclopedia from the library). This is to let the students get acquainted with different sources for research. The other source can be a website of their choice (with my approval). The guidelines for the project are handed out to the student. (See attached). The rubric is used for the final assessment. *** If you would like the example Notebook project, feel free to me and I can it to you. One thing I have learned is that it is easier to give the children a list of butterflies or Moths to choose from so they don t pick these obscure butterflies that are difficult to find information on. I suggest the following moths and butterflies: Monarch Painted Lady Swallowtails Luna Moths Sphinx Moths n EVALUATION/ ASSESSMENT The Notebook presentation will be assessed using the rubric. H H H
