The SIOP LESSON PLAN #5: formatted for the ESOL Course
5th Grade Will Design Oakcliff's New Play Space Including Playgrounds, Soccer Fields, and Blacktop: A STEM Unit Plan Integrating SIOP Language Goals
Task Constraints for Lesson 5: PRESENTATION of FINAL PRODUCT. The easiest thing to present would be your Online STEM Notebook. If your STEM Notebook is not presentable, you will need to EDIT it so that it is presentable. You may also create a PowerPoint or SWAY (copy and paste the most persuasive parts of your STEM Notebook).
Things you need to have in your final presentation include:
The Original Survey Data, turned into percents, fractions, or decimals of the entire space,
1 to 3 graphs that make understandable the Original Survey Data.
Your Excel map drawing of your play space design with a key or legend (or your PAINT overlay).
At least 4 Pictures of play equipment, with a caption that tells what it is used for, and the dimensions in square feet.
A calculation of the square footage percentage, fraction, or decimal that your design will take up.
The comparison of your design percentages versus the original survey data percentages.
Typed and spoken statements that are persuasive as to why you chose the play area and equipment.
At the end of this lesson
I will be able to recall the STEM EDP and the Online STEM Notebook and download a shared copy with my STEM TEAM,
I will organize for presentation my STEM Teams' designed plan, in one of the following: (1) WORD Online STEM Notebook; or (2) into a SWAY using photo stacks, measurements, and our grid plan; or (3) into a PowerPoint with pictures, or organize for presentation
I will be able to organize the play structure idea pictures, grid created in Excel, and math calculations from their STEM Notebook using the website platform SWAY, or PowerPoint.
I will be able to describe (speaking and writing) the benefits of my STEM Team's planned allotment of percentage/fraction/decimal of space allotted to each play activity, comparing their math percentages to the preferred activities of the class from previous lessons.
Collecting the Data - Opinion Continuum
Formulate-Share-Listen-Create The teacher presents a question:
your STEM Team use the STEM Notebook or SWAY or PowerPoint to present
an organized and persuasive representation of the information in your
Whichever program you decide to use, think about how to include
your Excel Grid, math representations showing how much space your design
covers, pictures of equipment, and the original math survey. How could you use screen shots?
students formulate an answer individually. Then they share their
answers with their STEM partner. They listen carefully to their
partner’s answer, note the similarities and differences, and they both
create a new answer that incorporates the best of both ideas, typing
their combined answer into their STEM Notebooks, SWAY, or PowerPoint.
Later they will share with the rest of the class.
