We researched Hotchalk Lesson Plans where any educator can pick a subject and grade level and receive pages worth of lessons plan. Also at the end of each lesson plan there are more plans related. Any educator can upload their own lesson plans and share them with others. There are tips about writing lesson plans and current news about the education system.
We went to Hot Chalk lesson plans. We found a lesson for an 8th grade Civil War unit. It helps students understand prevalent historical moments during the Civil War. It also helps them understand issues, individuals, and events during this time. Students will create a powerpoint presentation which shows how the wars impact the resources of a country. How physical geography can be an advantage or disadvantage during the war, and how a countries human geography can affect the outcome of a war.
We decided to look at Education World to look at lesson ideas from other teachers. One of our favorite pages on this website was the page for learning games. We do not want to become stagnant teachers and believe that, by incorporating games into our lessons, we can keep learning fun and keep the students engaged. We also think that it is pretty generous and cool of these teachers to provide an alternative way of teaching a lesson for others to use!
We went to Hot Chalk Lesson plans to research their site, it was amazing that there were over 4,000 lesson plans you could search on this website. It makes it very easy to find desired lesson plans as you just click on the subject matter you are teaching and the grade level and a number of lesson plans will appear. It is a great resource because it allows teachers to share their own lesson plans and receive them from other teachers. It also is helpful as it posts tips on writing lesson plans and it even stays up to date with current events and potential lesson plans on those topics.
I used LearnZillion and found that you can search by subject area and grade to find topics. They have the standards that go with each lesson and various resources available for each resource. I went to the 7th grade math proportional relationships since that is what I have been teaching my 7th graders in the past 2 weeks.
I found a lesson called Plants and Animals from the lessonplanspage.com. This would be a great way to introduce the next Science topic in my classroom. This lesson talks about where animals and plants live and how it is sometimes hard for them to survive.
We looked at Hot Chalk Lesson Plans page- there are over 4,000 lessons that you can search from by grade and subject area. The lessons are not super detailed, but they do offer plenty of information to create a great lesson off. It's a helpful resource because it offers a place to share lessons, borrow lessons from other teachers, and gain ideas from other educators.
On internet4classrooms.com I found a whole section of lessons that are specifically linked to the Common Core State Standards. There was a section just for history lessons as well. This is a great resource to use in my future classroom. My lessons must show connections to the common core and this is a great resource to find lessons.
