Harper Elementary School Lesson Plan Science Name: Grade Level: 2nd Subject: Science Date: August 20-24, 2018 Day of the Week Georgia Standard(s) of Excellence Key Vocabulary Activities/Strategies/Assessments ~What are students doing? Resources Monday S2L1a. Ask questions to determine the sequence of the life cycle of common animals in your area. Opening: Phenomenon- Duck-billed Platypus Essential Question How are the life cycles of animals similar? Our learning targets today are: 1. I can analyze data. 2. I can construct an explanation about the life of a duck-billed platypus TTW give students the Page Keeley Science Probe worksheet: Life Cycle Stages . This probe can be used to uncover students’ ideas about animal life. It is designed to see if they recognize that both birds and reptiles have similar life cycles of egg laying, development inside an egg, hatching from the egg, and growth and development into adulthood. Allow time for students to express their ideas regarding the probe (paired, group, or whole class discussion). Use student’s ideas to plan instruction during the lesson address any misconceptions. Common Misconceptions: Students sometimes do not realize that the examples presented in books apply to most animals. Instead, they may believe that the cycle only applies to the examples presented in the text. Students may also not realize that death is part of the life cycle.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
