Name: Ashley Cook Grade Level: Third Grade Subject of Lesson: Fossils Students: 18 Third grade students. There are 8 boys and 10 girls in the class. One child has ADHD and may need an aide to work with him. Instructional Goals: The students will be able to: Recognize a fossil. Identify what type of fossil they found. Instruction: I will introduce the lesson by asking if anyone knows what a fossil is. We will then go to the carpet for story time and I will read the book “Fossils Tell of Long Ago. I will ask the students at the end of the book how they would define a fossil now. As a class we will discuss the book and what the students learned from it. Defining a fossil and the things a fossil is made out of will be part of the discussion. We will also talk about the three different types of fossils that are talked about in the book. I will explain the directions for their activity and have them return to their seats. The activity will be next with everyone listening to me as we conduct the “experiment”. They will record their findings on the back of their worksheet that will be due for homework. Content Standards: A.EL.1 Uses multi-sensory abilities to process information B.
