We had amazing presenters this year such as our first lady Abigail Cox and Brittney Cummins from the Governor’s Early Childhood Commission. Topics included outdoor classrooms, literacy, personalized competency learning, social studies, math, resources for families, behavior tips, and more.
This is a lesson plan template created to engage young readers and encourage students to read fluently. Produced for 1st grade students, in a face-to-face setting. It can be completed in two 30 minute chuncks in one day, or across two days. The purpose of this lesson is to build a greater love for reading in each student. Reading with expression can aid in reading fluency and comprehension. You will be using dance along videos and engaging songs to introduce fluency. Students will create individual projects and be provided with opportunities to work with a partner to assess their learning. Instructions to incude diverse learners are included in section 1, 4, 5 and 6.
This subject provides an introduction to fluid mechanics. Students are introduced to and become familiar with all relevant physical properties and fundamental laws governing the behavior of fluids and learn how to solve a variety of problems of interest to civil and environmental engineers. While there is a chance to put skills from Calculus and Differential Equations to use in this subject, the emphasis is on physical understanding of why a fluid behaves the way it does. The aim is to make the students think as a fluid. In addition to relating a working knowledge of fluid mechanics, the subject prepares students for higher-level subjects in fluid dynamics.
Compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object and determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull.
Driving Question: Can I as “Science Investigator”, engineer and design,
a way to move an object without using my hands or feet?
Children will listen to music and dance to the beat of that music using large coordinated movements of isolated body parts. An adult or peer will be holding up cards to demonstrate what body part to move.
This lesson plan is designed to help educators teach K-2 students to run, gallop, hop, skip, jump, and slide. Students will also learn correct locomotor movement vocabulary.
Learn about position, velocity, and acceleration in the "Arena of Pain". Use the green arrow to move the ball. Add more walls to the arena to make the game more difficult. Try to make a goal as fast as you can.
Children will listen to a song with movements as the adult points out the words in the rhyme. Once your child(ren) knows the song and the motions they will point out the words and control their movements.
Children will listen to The Wheels on the Bus as the adult points out the words in the rhyme. Children will participate with listening and movement.
Discuss changes children can identify after they have participated in a rigorous physical activity. As you prepare to go outside, ask children to locate and place their hands over their hearts to feel the heartbeats in a rested state, notice the color in the faces, and think about how their legs and arms feel.
