The lesson sequence I plan to use for each continent and ocean lesson:
- Gather students on carpet for read-aloud
- Continent Mini-Books or Ocean Mini-Books (you can find them in my TPT store)
- Continent or Oceans song (you can find them in my TPT store HERE)
- View PPT slides on each to learn facts
- Brainstorm facts about each of the continents using the mimio for recall of details
- Build the cut-apart sentence in interactive notebook
How to Use this Interactive Notebook: You can purchase it HERE.
- After reading your favorite read aloud book about each of the continents/oceans, watching videos, and brainstorming facts they remember, have your students piece together the fact for each continent or ocean. Then have them color the black line illustrations.
How to Assemble:
- Copy single sided or double sided and staple on the left hand size.
- Copy the words that will be glued in the book separately. There are three on each page. Only hand out the sentence your students need.
