This week has two assignments. This is the first, create a internet enhanced lesson. One caveat, no use of videos as that is another lesson. That was challenging as I have a couple of ideas for lessons I would like to create, but they include watching some You Tube videos as tutorials.
I created a lesson on heat transfer that involves some online tutorials, hands on classroom activities, and students showcase their learning by creating an infographic.
Here is the link to my Weebly page that contains the lesson.
Below is the embedded Google Lesson.
This week was a two part assignment: 1. Create a video library for use in our content area and 2. create lesson plan that utilizes video.
For my video library, I decided to find videos to use during the Astronomy unit of Earth Science. The videos used range from the Big Bang to Star formation to eclipses.
For my lesson, I chose to do introduction to the Big Bang. This is topic that is can be difficult to grasp for students, and the use of video enhances the understanding. I look forward to incorporating this lesson in the fall.

We needed to create a chart detailing software support tools. Extra Credit for using Symbaloo or Pearltrees. I chose to use Pearltrees as it was easy to navigate and very intuitive. I think it is a great tool for organizing information, and it could probably go on the software support tools chart under “planning and organizing tools”. Here is a link to my software support tools on my Weebly page.
My prior post discusses and gives examples of the different types of instructional software. As part of the week’s assignments we created a lesson plan that utilizes two types of instructional software. I chose a tutorial from Annenberg on Plate Tectonics, and a drill and practice using Quizlet. I plan to create approximately 25-30 flashcards for the lesson plan.
Here is my lesson plan on my Weebly Site.
