2. Analyze the learner
Class: 3rd Grade, 21 students (14 boys, 7 girls) there are 18 Caucasian, 2 African
America, 1 Asian. One student has dyslexia.
Competencies: Students should understand the scientific method, and how to use
Learning styles: Dyslexic student is a visual learner, other students are auditory, and
some are visual.
My students will recognize the scientific method and be able to perform
its procedures by the end of the week at 100% accuracy. We will use
videos, pictures, group work, an experiment, and handouts.
4. Day by Day Breakdown
Day One: We will discuss a handout of scientific method vocabulary, and watch
a video of what the scientific method is.
Day Two: We will go into detail of all parts of the scientific method using
pictures and handouts to describe each one.
Day Three: We will begin discussing the experiment giving the students
background information and asking them questions. Then students will
construct their hypothesis.
Day Four: We will discuss experiment safety, and then the students and I will
perform the experiment. Students will break up into groups, 4 groups of 4 and
1 group of 5.
Day Five: Students will discuss their results in small groups and determine if
their hypothesis was true. Then we will discuss the results as a class.
5. Use of Technology
I will use the computer to show my students videos about the scientific
Have all of the handouts printed and ready for the students to receive.
Project the pictures on the screen so all of the students can see them.
I will have all of the materials my students need for the experiment.
Test the experiment prior to the class period (so I know it works).
