Connected M/S/T Learning Experience (CLE) (30 Pts)
November 7, 2007
Main Subject Focus:
CLE 1 = (m/
I will have the students using a web based activity found here
. I modified this by not
doing all the activities, I only used two. I didn’t want the students to be on the
computer for too long, so I cut it to two and then the children would come
together as a whole class to discuss further.
I also used another E-sheet where I also cut down the amount of activities they
would be doing online. The link for that E-sheet is
. I love the idea of
students being engaged in the internet and computers, but by moderation, they
shouldn’t be on the computer an entire day.
I also used this lesson about weather, and children charting high and low
temperature over a period of 30 days.
I added that after the
30 days are up, each child will be assigned a week to keep recording this data, so
the students can actually see the changed over the course of the entire school year,
not just one month. I would also record this myself using the computer and print a
copy for the children so they can see over the course of the following year how
the temperatures match up.
CLE Summary & Focus Concept:
In this CLE the students will be learning about
weather, most importantly hurricanes. Students will examine different scientific aspects
of hurricanes, in an effort to understand how they form, where they form, when they form
etc. Students will explore how technology and science are used today to identify,
measure, and track powerful tropical storms to better warn and secure people from their
: introduce weather, storms and hurricanes and how they affect the world. The
vocabulary associated with hurricanes, how, where and why they form.
: Students will collect, organize and describe weather data. Then they will
construct, read, and interpret different displays of data, such as line graphs, line plots, and
: Students will examine the role of technology in identifying and tracking
hurricanes. They will also be using computers and the internet quite a bit to see videos
and engaging websites.
Chart paper, markers, foil, and oak tag.
