## 1a: Articulate and set personal learning goals, develop

strategies leveraging technology to achieve them and
reflect on the learning process itself to improve learning
outcomes.
1b: Students build networks and customize their
learning environments in ways that support the learning
process.
Desks are arranged in original manner so student A can
visually the room. Heavier materials can be used that
student A will hear hit the floor if they have trouble
seeing. Materials change can include a piece of paper
and a tennis ball.

the Learning
Plan

## Students will enter this lesson having minimal prior knowledge

on gravity. The students will know that an object travels to the
ground if you drop it. The students will begin to learn how
gravity is responsible. The lesson below allows students to
grasp these concepts while implementing PA standards.

Introduction

## Activating Prior Knowledge

Ask students if they know what gravity is.
Ask students if gravity is something they can see.
The instructor is going to engage the students by asking
them to get out their netbooks and crumble a piece of
paper.

## Big Idea Statement

Gravity is a source between two opposing objects.
Essential Questions Statement
What is gravity?
Where is gravity?
What does gravity do?
Objective Statement
Students will state what gravity is.
Students will explain where gravity is found.
Students will explain what gravity does.
Transition
After students have crumbled a piece of notebook paper
up, they will walk to the front of the room with the
crumbled piece, and a regular piece.

Lesson
Procedure

PreAssessment of Students
During a teacher initiated discussion, students will
discuss if they every have dropped anything before.
Modeling of the Concept
Instructor will join the students in the front of the class
with a piece of crumbled paper and a piece of regular
paper. Instructor will explain that they are all going to
drop both piece of paper at the same exact time.
Guiding the Practice
Teacher will ask students which piece of paper they think
will hit the ground first.
Providing the Independent Practice
Students will drop both pieces of paper at the same time
and see which model hits the ground first.
Transition
Before children transition back to their seats, instructor
will ask students why they think the crumbled paper hit
the ground first. Students and instructor will begin a
conversation on mass and different shapes of objects
when they return back to their seats.
