Subject: Science

Grade Level: Kindergarten

Signature of Cooperating Teacher


Student Standards being Taught:

 Science K. 10: Identify objects observed in the day sky with the unaided eye, including the sun, clouds, moon, and rainbows.



Objectives (What do I want my students to know and do by the end of this lesson?):

-Students will be able to identify objects observed in the day sky such as the sun, clouds, moon, and rainbows.

Introductory Activities:

-Do a brainstorming activity with students.

-Say things like: What words come to mind when you think of the sky.

-As the students think of words record them on the white board so that they can see what they have came up with.


Developmental Activities:

-Have students go outside to observe the daytime sky.

-Remind them of the danger of looking directly at the sun.

-Ask students:

 *What objects do you see?

 *Are any of these objects moving?  Describe how they are moving?

  *Which of these objects do you think you would be able to see at night?


Culminating Activities:

-Have students to create a journal page, documenting their observation in words and pictures.

 *Use the worksheet "What objects do you see in the daytime sky?" for the journal page.

-Lead students in a discussion of how they think the sky's objects will change over time.

-Ask students:

  *What do you think will still be in the sky tonight?

  *What do you think will still be in the sky tomorrow?


Evaluation of the Day’s Objectives (How will I know my students learned what I expected them to learn?):

 -Allow students ample time to share their illustrations with the class.

 -Check their illustrations to make sure they understand what they have learned that day.


Modifications for Special Needs: 

-Motor Skill Needs-Have a tennis ball with a small hole cut in the middle so small art materials can be placed in the middle.  This allows the student to have something larger to handle.



-Worksheet "What objects do you see in the daytime sky?"
