Magic Rocks K

Description

Students are divided into groups, one for each habitat: rainforest, desert, and ocean. The teacher gives the students notecards with a picture and name of an animal that they will act out in their small group’s habitat. Students interact with each other in the form of predators, prey, or family within their group’s habitat. After- wards, each group will present their habitat performance to the class. Students can identify the habitat and animal relationships. Next, students will complete a writing activity where they will learn about phonics by crafting animal sounds into onomatopoeia words. The class will create a digital ABC book of animal drawings and recorded animal sounds.

Sounds of Storms 3

Description

Sounds of Storms is an exercise used to teach students about weather, the sounds certain types of weather can make, different musical pitches, how to use a legend, and how to identify the beginning, middle, and end of a story. In this exercise, the students will create their own instrument (rainmaker, wind maker, or a thunder maker) to demonstrate the sounds that storms make. Once completed, the teacher will guide the students through the provided interactive story of Gracie the Goose. Using the legend in the story, the students will use their newly made noise makers at the appropriate times to make Gracie the Goose’s journey come to life! After completing the story, students will be given a booklet with questions according to their learning level to ensure that they understand the lesson.
