Social Studies Differentiation Stephanie Doeppel GCU ELM 550 3/25/2020 Part 1: Lesson Plan Grade level: First Grade Social studies standard: HSS-1.2.3 Construct a simple map, using cardinal directions and map symbols. Arts standard: 1.VA:Cr2.3 Identify and classify uses of everyday objects through drawings, diagrams, sculptures, or other visual means. Learning objective: By the end of this lesson students will be able to identify regions of the state of California as well as identify and find direction using a compass through drawings and and visual diagrams. Description of the learning activity that integrates social studies and the arts (100-150 words): For this learning activity students will receive a paper with an outline of California. They will need to use any of the provided materials such as dried beans, corn, peas, rice or oats to fill in the map with the regions of the state along with a legend to identity the regions. The students must also include a compass on their map and the state capitol. This lesson integrates social studies and art by teaching the students about their state as well as allowing them to use their creative mind to create a map using everyday items to show the different regions of the state.
Instructional Strategy: The instructional strategy I will use learning stations which gets the students moving around and works great for differentiated learning (Guido, 2016). First I will show the students a video that I found on youtube that explains the four regions that are found in California and where they are along with facts and information on those regions.
