  2. 2. Green Ambassador Lesson Plan c) Project must be uploaded: a. Lesson plan uploaded to www.greenambassadors.org b. 2 sentence summary written about your lesson and its effectiveness c. Upload any pictures that could be inspiring for all Teacher Guide Objective: • To train students how to be effective communicators to a younger audience • To have students apply their knowledge of the solution in lesson plan Summary: Students will be trained to determine what an effective lesson plan by looking at ineffective and effective lesson plans. Then the students will be trained in the CB+ Green Ambassador lesson plan to teach younger students how to compost in their elementary/middle school classroom. Knowledge: • How to teach younger children • How to take advanced material, process it, and delivery it to a younger audience Skills: • Writing a lesson plan • Presenting a lesson plan to an audience Values: • Life-Long learners • Quality stewards of the Environment 6Ms: message is included into your media of a lesson plan Time: 2-3 Days Handouts: Lesson Plan Form A-F, Examples A-B, Lesson Plan Form G to be used with students Standards: NL-ENG.K-12.4 COMMUNICATION SKILLS: Students adjust their use of spoken, written, and visual language (e.g., conventions, style, vocabulary) to communicate effectively with a variety of audiences and for different purposes. 2
  3. 3. Green Ambassador Lesson Plan NL-ENG.K-12.6 APPLYING KNOWLEDGE: Students apply knowledge of language structure, language conventions (e.g., spelling and punctuation), media techniques, figurative language, and genre to create, critique, and discuss print and nonprint texts Day 1: Effective lesson vs. Ineffective lesson Warm up: • Who has been one of your favorite teachers and why? Through: • Lead students to understand that teachers create lesson plans to deliver a message to accomplish their mission for the day. A clear message will make the mission even stronger. • Announce that today we will be looking at an effective lesson plan and an ineffective lesson plan it will be their job to evaluate, which is which. o Students will also be trained in how to write a lesson plan for next time that they do a Green Ambassador Project • Go through the Project description and the requirements for students to write a lesson plan o Students might get overwhelmed by everything required but tell them that you will go through it step by step for them to understand. • Walk students step by step of the evaluation form for an effective lesson • Hand out 2 differnet lesson plans and have students • Have students evaluate the two lesson plans by using Beyond: • Divide students up in a Pair-Share have them go through the Form G • Start a conversation with the entire class of what is effective about teaching younger kids Day 2-3 days: Delivering an effective lesson Warm up: • List characteristics that you like about they way I teach as a teacher? Through: • Lead students to understand that hands-on teaching is most engaging for students • Deliver the lesson plan for teaching elementary students and have them evaluate the lesson plan • Make changes to make it better • Have each table group (provide enough materials for them to do it, or have them gather the materials for their lessons) perform the lesson plan 3
  4. 4. Green Ambassador Lesson Plan • Choose the group (in a democratic process) that will be the group that delivers the lesson to elementary students after the Green Event Beyond: • Why is hands-on more important than lecture • How can we make all of our media that we create for this project, hands on? Formative Assessment: Evaluating the students on the delivery of their lesson plan, choosing the most effective and sending them to an elementary school after the Green Event. After this training Green Ambassadors will have everything they need to deliver a lesson plan for elementary students. 1. Project Description a.

Green Solution you are Teaching: No Waste in Nature What science are they learning? The science of composting Goals/Objectives: Write the learning goals that you would like for your lesson to meet. That after you leave the students will know the following: 1. To raise awareness of how to reduce waste 2. To gain skills: hypothesizing and observing 13
  14. 14. Green Ambassador Lesson Plan Materials needed: a tarp, gloves, In a 2 glass jars bring greens: vegetable peels and seeds, fruit peels and seeds, coffee grounds, eggs shells, nut shells, any other vegetable or fruit scraps: browns: - hay or straw, leaves, ashes, sawdust, wood chips, shredded paper, CB+ composter, soil in another glass jar, poster of browns and greens, benefits of composting poster, game directions Lesson: Hook them in: you will read to start the lesson/activity with a fun way to engage the students • Ask: Who wants to save the earth? Who wants to be magician and turn waste into a valuable product? • Discuss the term decomposition and brain storm examples of materials that decompose • Ask what is compost? Show them compost. Explain this is nature’s way to recycle; it is natural materials broken down to soil. • Explain composting is like baking a cake. Simply add the ingredients, stir, "bake," and out comes – compost or top soil o Why is this good?  Repairs our soil (recycles nutrients to grow more food and makes it possible that there is no waste) stops things from going into landfill, allows you to garden naturally, • Today students will: o Learn the recipe to compost o Learn how to compost o Change their school by composting in their own classroom to inspire others. • Explain organic = living thing (or was) In-organic = not living things (with sings) • Hold up a water bottle and ask the same thing • Explain that only organic manner can be decomposed Game/Activity/Hands-on way of teaching the lesson: Summary of Activity: • Students will know how to compost organic matter, practice composting, and set up their composter for their own class. Detailed steps: • Show the recipe poster (material item) • Mix the browns and the greens in one pile. • Recipe to turn your waste into soil o Have 5 students with the help of the whole class separate the browns from the greens o Have them put a pile of green out, then tell them for every pile of green they need 2 piles of brown of the same size have them make the pile of brown. o Show them the soil that you have and explain why it is so important: 1. To grow plants to support all living things. o Tell them to add it to the CB+ composter o Ask, “What else is missing?” Air and water (add water to the composter) o Explain to get air you have to spin the composter, get a every students to spin the composter o Review what is needed (1 part green, 2 parts brown, air, oxygen and a CB+composter) • Have the entire class play compost game (see game section on www.greenambassadors.org)? • Closure: Think…what do you really want the students to remember for the rest of their lives? c. What do you want them to remember about your Green Theme? a. What can be composted? b. What do we do with the finished compost? (have them guess, put on plants, sell to family members, etc.) c.
