1 The Bruins I.C.E. School Lesson 1: Similes Lesson 2: Visualizing Lesson 3: Fact vs. Opinion Lesson 4: Informational Text Lesson 5: Narrative Essay Worksheets Included: Fact/Opinion Worksheet *You will need the Boston Bruins Guide and Player Book for lessons four and five available from I.C.E. School Web Site. Please see each lesson for frameworks applied to that lesson 1

2 Lesson 1: Similes Standards Addressed: 5.RL.4: Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative language such as metaphors and similes. 5.L.5A: Interpret figurative language, including similes and metaphors, in context. General Goal(s) Expected Outcome: Using similes to describe characters Specific Objectives: Students will gain greater knowledge by incorporating similes into their writing. Technology Integration: Computer with Internet access/smartboard/elmo/overhead options Required Materials: Unlined White Paper Lined White Paper Crayons or Colored Pencils Modeling/Explanation Explain to students that similes occur when a writer makes comparisons between things or people using the words, like or as. Writers often use similes in a story so the reader can easily visualize what is taking place in his/her mind. The teacher displays the following sentence: Tyler Seguin is skating like a tornado moving through the Great Planes. The teacher asks students: Why is this statement considered a simile? What do you know about Tyler Seguin after reading this sentence? (Comparing Seguin to a fast moving tornado using the word like. I know that Tyler was skating very fast). The teacher displays the following sentence: Zdeno Chara is as tall as the Empire State Building. The teacher asks students: Why is this statement considered a simile? What do you know about Zdeno Chara after reading this sentence? Depending on the level of the students, the teacher may continue with more examples using specific Boston Bruins players. After sufficient knowledge of similes is attained, the teacher asks students to draw a color picture of a Bruins player on unlined white paper. This player can be a current player or a made up one. Tell students to put as much detail as possible into their drawing. They should think about the player s eyes, nose, ears, mouth, hands, legs, etc. 2

3 Once drawings are complete, ask students to choose three aspects of their character s drawing from this list: hair nose face lips eyes ears hands legs feet Ask the students to write three similes to describe the aspects chosen that will best describe the player. After, have the students write a descriptive paragraph that describes their player incorporates these similes into their paragraph. Independent Practice Paragraph Writing Differentiated Instruction Adaptations (For students with learning disabilities) Have the students write only one simile instead of three. Write one to two sentences instead of a paragraph. Extensions (For Gifted Students) Challenge students to think of strong adjectives to describe the player. Check for Understanding The teacher monitors students progress with similes and paragraph and assists when needed. Closure/Wrap-Up Students share drawings and paragraphs with class members. This is an opportunity to have them type up their stories and display them on a bulletin board along with pictures. Evaluation Check their paragraphs. 3

4 ELA Lesson 2: Visualizing Standards Addressed: 5.RI.2: Determine two or more main ideas of a text and explain how they are supported by key details; summarize the text. 5.RI7: Draw on information from multiple print or digital sources, demonstrating the ability to locate an answer to a question quickly or to solve a problem efficiently. 5.L.4: Determine or clarify the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words and phrases based on grade 5 reading and content, choosing flexibly from a range of strategies. General Goal(s) Expected Outcome Visualizing/summarizing while reading non-fiction text. Specific Objectives: Students will be able to use the process of visualizing to better help them summarize non-fictional text. Technology Integration: Computer with Internet access/smartboard/elmo/overhead options Required Materials: Bruins article from a newspaper or online source that is grade level appropriate Introduction Ask students what it means to visualize something. Ask for volunteers to describe a time when visualizing helped them to better understand something that they were reading. The teacher should share a story as well. Modeling/Explanation Tell the students that you would like them to visualize in their minds while listening to the article about the Bruins. Display the article while reading it to the students. Next, pass out a sheet of unlined white large paper. Have students fold the paper into six equal size blocks. Pass out a copy of the article to each student. Have the students split the article into six parts. This can be random or you may extend the lesson to incorporate as a review of beginning, middle, and end if you have already discussed this. Have students number each part. Using the white paper with the six blocks, the students must retell the article using only pictures. Remind them to not leave any important details out of their pictures. When complete, have the students share with their classmates. After, collect the articles and have students use their picture only to write a one paragraph summary of the article. 4

5 Independent Practice Picture creation and paragraph Differentiated Instruction Adaptations (For students with learning disabilities) Have students do only three drawings instead of six or one large drawing that captures the main idea of the article. Students then write one or two sentences to summarize. Extensions (For Gifted Students) If you have access to a computer lab or portable computer lab, have students find an article on their own to do this lesson. Check for Understanding The teacher monitors students progress of pictures and paragraphs and assists when needed. Closure/Wrap-Up Students share drawings with class members. Students may do a partner swap with a classmate to check each other s summaries. Evaluation Evaluate their drawings and paragraph. 5

General Goal(s) Expected Outcome Distinguishing between Fact and Opinion Specific Objectives: Students will be able to distinguish between a factual statement and an opinion statement. Technology Integration: Computer with Internet access/smartboard/elmo/overhead options Required Materials: Internet access in a computer lab or portable computer lab Corresponding worksheet Introduction On your Smartboard or Whiteboard, write the words Fact vs. Opinion.

Tell them that you just told them three facts and one opinion. Ask for volunteers to tell you what the facts were and what the opinion was and why. Write these statements on the board under the appropriate heading. 6

7 ELA 5 th th Grade Grade Modeling/Explanation Tell the students: To see if something is a fact, ask yourself, Can this be proven in some way? If it can, then it is a fact. Go back to the statements on the board and explain why each of those three facts are true facts and not opinions (Example: The final score was 4-2 Boston is a fact because that was indeed the final score of the game. You can find it on the Internet or in the newspaper as proof of the final score). Tell the students: To see if something is an opinion, ask yourself, Does this tell a thought or feeling? Would this statement be true 100% of the time? Write the following words on the board: feel, believe, always, never, none, most, least, best, worst Tell students that these words are often associated with opinion statements. After this introduction, students visit the News section of the Boston Bruins Web Site to find examples of facts and opinions.
