Scope and Sequence of Learning Activities (Include Warm-Up, Strategies, Assessments, Closure/Reflection)


Warm Up: Introducing the Lesson A. Introduce the lesson with questions stating"Has anyone ever been to a zoo?" "Do you like zoos?" I then will share an experience of when I have been to a Zoo. Short Story: Zoo Teacher will introduce the short story that the students will be reading in class. The teacher will explain that the story is about a zoo but not any ordinary zoo. We are going to do a method of popcorn reading so the kids will be in tuned with the story. After about 3-4 paragraphs teacher will talk about the story and ask questions like"In paragraph 1 I would say why is the 23rd of August so in important in the story?" "Why do you think the professor would pick that certain day?" The teacher will get the students discussing their opinion (also it will let the teacher know if they are following along with the story).



Worksheet assignment: After students finish reading the short story teacher will pass out a worksheet that has questions relating with the story. The teacher will divide the class into 4 groups and assign them a section to do. The teacher will give them 5-10 min of work time and go around and answer questions. After the time being the teacher will go on the promethean board and use the lamp device to go over the answers with the students. Exit Ticket: If we have more time to spare we will have an exit ticket. The exit ticket will contain writing a letter to Professor Hugo and asking him how he came up with this idea of a zoo. Some other questions you could ask Professor Hugo could be why the 23rd of August for coming to Earth? Where did you get these creatures from? How long do they stay alive for? Etc..
