Group 1 web quest project

  1. 1. BY: CHRISTINE OTERO, MATTHEW LEHMAN, FELICIA GELL, JENNIFER GARRISON, AND ASHLEY GILNACK Webquest Final Project
  2. 2. What is Constructivism <ul><li>“ Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely.” </li></ul><ul><li>-August Rodin </li></ul>
  3. 3. Background/History John Dewey Jean Piaget Lev Vygotsky
  4. 4. What Does This Mean For Us As Educators? <ul><li>“ The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.” -Mark Van Doren </li></ul>
  5. 5. Advantages Constructivism <ul><li>Effective for the tactile/Kinesthetic learners </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Student excitement and interest. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Uses scaffolding </li></ul><ul><li>Elimination of a standardized curriculum </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Flexible </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Promotes teamwork and cooperation </li></ul><ul><li>Students understand information, don’t just recite it back </li></ul><ul><li>Promotes higher level thinking skills </li></ul>
  6. 6. Disadvantages of Constructivism <ul><li>Teachers cannot customize curriculum to every single student </li></ul><ul><li>Impossible to compare student progress </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Difficult to grade/evaluate </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Teacher training </li></ul><ul><li>During initial stages students may experience confusion or frustration </li></ul><ul><li>Classroom Management </li></ul><ul><li>Math/Science </li></ul><ul><ul><li>rules, formulas, and procedures </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. PRIMARY SUBJECT: SCIENCE GRADE LEVEL: 2 TOPIC: PARTS OF PLANTS 5E Lesson
  8. 8. Objectives <ul><li>At the end of the lesson, pupils will: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>be able to name the parts of a plant. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>label the parts of a plant on a diagram. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>identify the job of each part of a plant. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>plant a seed and observe the growth over a period of two weeks. </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Engage <ul><li>Concepts: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Plants have parts. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Each part of the plant has a different role. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Plants begin as a seed, turn into a seedling, then a plant.  </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Teacher brings in a real live plant. Teacher ask pupils: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What are the parts of a plant? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Why is each part important? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What do they think each part does? </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Explore <ul><li>In groups, pupils will plant the seeds. </li></ul><ul><li>Before planting the seed students will receive: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>a cup labeled with name of the student. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>soil to fill the cup. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>a small watering can to provide water to the plant. </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Explain <ul><li>Concepts: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Seeds needs air, water and warmth. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Plants need air, water, sunlight and nutrients in order to live and thrive.  </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Students identify what the seeds will need to grow into an adult plant. </li></ul><ul><li>Students identify the parts of a plant. </li></ul><ul><li>Students label the parts of a plant on the Smart Board. </li></ul><ul><li>Students identify the role of each part of a plant. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Expand <ul><li>Teacher asks pupils: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What happens if a plant is pulled out of the ground and doesn’t have any roots left? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If a flower pot is always left in one place the flowers will eventually lean in one direction. Why does this happen? (The job of the stem is to hold the leaves to the light so the plant will lean toward the sun) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What happens if there are no bees left to carry the pollen from one flower to another? </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. Evaluate <ul><li>Multiple Choice Test When Plants are Grown </li></ul><ul><li>Anecdotal Records </li></ul><ul><li>Over the weeks, pupils will: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>record when the plant was watered. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>measure the height of the plant as it grows. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>keep a journal to draw the plant during each stage. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Review roles of each plant part by creating a diagram on the Smart Board. </li></ul></ul>
  14. 14. Parts of a Plant Test <ul><li>What is one job that a flower does? </li></ul><ul><li>Makes seeds. </li></ul><ul><li>Works with the sun to make food for the plant. </li></ul><ul><li>Carries water from the roots to other parts of the plant. </li></ul><ul><li>Holds the leaves up to the light. </li></ul><ul><li>2) What is one job that the stem does? </li></ul><ul><li>Makes seeds. </li></ul><ul><li>Works with the sun to make food for the plant. </li></ul><ul><li>Carries water from the roots to other parts of the plant. </li></ul><ul><li>Attracts insects or birds that will carry pollen. </li></ul><ul><li>3)What is one job that the roots do? </li></ul><ul><li>Makes seeds. </li></ul><ul><li>Takes up water and minerals from the soil. </li></ul><ul><li>Carries water from the roots to other parts of the plant. </li></ul><ul><li>Holds the leaves up to the light. </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>4) What is one job that the leaves do? </li></ul><ul><li>Makes seeds. </li></ul><ul><li>Works with the sun to make food for the plant. </li></ul><ul><li>Carries water from the roots to other parts of the plant. </li></ul><ul><li>Holds the leaves up to the light. </li></ul><ul><li>5) What is another job that the flower does? </li></ul><ul><li>Takes in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. </li></ul><ul><li>Attracts insects or birds that will carry pollen. </li></ul><ul><li>Works with the sun to make food for the plant. </li></ul><ul><li>Takes up water and minerals from the soil. </li></ul><ul><li>6) What is another job that the leaves do? </li></ul><ul><li>Takes in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. </li></ul><ul><li>Attracts insects or birds that will carry pollen. </li></ul><ul><li>Carries water from the roots to other parts of the plant. </li></ul><ul><li>Takes up water and minerals from the soil. </li></ul><ul><li>7) What is another job that the roots do? </li></ul><ul><li>Takes in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. </li></ul><ul><li>Attracts insects or birds that will carry pollen. </li></ul><ul><li>Works with the sun to make food for the plant. </li></ul><ul><li>Hold the plant in the soil. </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>8) What is another job that the stem does? </li></ul><ul><li>Takes in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. </li></ul><ul><li>Attracts insects or birds that will carry pollen. </li></ul><ul><li>Holds the leaves up to the light. </li></ul><ul><li>Takes up water and minerals from the soil. </li></ul><ul><li>9) If a person picks a plant and puts it in water without the roots it will eventually die. Why does that happen? </li></ul><ul><li>The plant doesn’t have a flower anymore. </li></ul><ul><li>The plant is sad. </li></ul><ul><li>The plant does not have roots left so the plant can’t get enough water and minerals. </li></ul><ul><li>The plant doesn’t like to be inside. </li></ul><ul><li>10) Why is it important for the stem of a plant to be strong? </li></ul><ul><li>Only strong plants can get water. </li></ul><ul><li>People will step on a plant that isn’t strong. </li></ul><ul><li>The job of a stem is to hold up a plant and if the stem isn’t strong the leaves won’t be held up to the light. </li></ul><ul><li>It isn’t important for a plant to be strong. </li></ul><ul><li>Bonus Question: Label the four parts of a plant on this picture. Label the three parts that are shown and draw the fourth part that isn’t shown in the picture. Then label the fourth part that you drew. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
