STC Unit: Changes Lesson Plan (2nd Grade)
*Teaching the inquiry-based lesson to my colleagues.
I created a 5-E inquiry-based lesson plan for second grade students on physical and chemical changes. The lesson plan outlined the major misconceptions, big ideas, Pennsylvania standards, and skills for one of the lessons in the Science and Technology for Children unit: Changes. When planning lesson plans it is essential to address the state standards and make sure the instructional outcomes are aligned with state guidelines and expectations. I was able to teach this inquiry-based lesson plan to my colleagues during the fall semester of my junior year at Elizabethtown College. I provided my colleagues with information that they would find in the manual, as well as how to use the variety of resources provided with the unit.
