Students’ age range: 10-12
Topic: Water Words Class
Description: The lesson will commence with the pupils watching a video clip of Sesame Street on you tube entitled “Don’t Waste Water”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ovn7s7lvWi8
The pupils will then be asked to guess the topic for the day and a few minutes will be given for the desired response which is “Water”. The teacher will then go on to show students the water pond chart which would contain in the first instance the words to be learnt for the first few lessons. The teacher will use a different chart of words in the water pond when the students would have mastered the first set of words. The students will be taught various ways to remember the words via music as well as having word walls posted on the chalk board. There will also be a picture word wall to complement the written words. The students will then play a short game of pulling words from a box and practice using the water words in a sentence. The teacher will then give the students work sheets to have them fill out and find the water words. The students will also be reminded of the value and importance of water and be informed that there are individuals in all parts of the world that may not have the privilege of having potable water. The students will engage in a discussion about the importance of water. The students will be asked to imagine if they could drink or cook or wash laundry in unpotable water. This will start the discussion. The teacher will guide the discussion accordingly. All resource teachers would work along with the English teacher or vice versa such as the Science teacher, Home Economics and Art teacher for an Integrated approach.
