  • Slide 3
  • Slide 4
  • This lesson was prepared for a special education classroom made up of 7 students 3 Third Graders 4 Fourth Graders All students have IEPs- Some classifications in the room- Speech/ language Emotional/ Behavior Autistic Mentally Retarted
  • Slide 5
  • To teach students about temperature and how it is measured so they can apply it in the real world
  • Slide 6
  • This lesson will take place during one 35 minute Science period. 5 minute mini lesson on thermometer recognition 15 direct instruction with 4 th grade group 15 minute direct instruction with 3 rd grade group
  • Slide 7
  • The students will be able to read a thermometer in Fahrenheit and Celsius with 85% accuracy. The students will be able to write that a thermometer is the tool that measures temperature with 95% accuracy. The students will be able to write the temperature for the freezing point with 95% accuracy.
  • Slide 8
  • Why is it important to have standard units of measurement?
  • Slide 9
  • Thermometers are the tool used to measure temperature. Temperature is how hot or cold something is. Degrees Fahrenheit and degrees Celsius are the two standard units of measurement for temperature.
  • Slide 10
  • What tool is used to measure temperature? What is a temperature that is hot in degrees Fahrenheit and degrees Celsius? What is a cold and hot temperature in degrees Fahrenheit and degrees Celsius? What is Fahrenheit and Celsius?
  • Slide 11
  • Measure three different temperatures of water Answer the temperature questions on the interactive bulletin board Complete worksheet on temperature independently
  • Slide 12
  • Area: Science Content Standard: 4- Science Content Strand: Physical Setting Key Idea: 3 Level: Elementary Grade Level:3 and 4
  • Slide 13
  • 3.1.C Objects have properties that can be observed, described, and/or measured: length, width, volume, size, shape, mass or weight, temperature, texture, flexibility, reflective ness of light.
  • Slide 14
  • The worksheet S-1 The students are assessed based on a four point rubric.

  • Slide 16
  • Attribute4 321 Reading the Thermometer Weight/ 2.0 (Out of 8) ____ Score The students got both measurements within 3 points of actual in both units on all 3 thermometers The students got both measurements within 3 points of actual in both units on 2/3 thermometers The students got both measurements within 5 points of actual in both units on 1/3 thermometers The students got 1 temperature correct on 1 unit within 5 or more points of actual
  • Slide 17
  • Attribute4 321 Relate to real life questions Weight/ 2.0 (Out of 8) ___ Score The student got 4 correct The student got 3 correct The student got 2 correct The student got 0-1 correct
  • Slide 18
  • Attribute4 321 Boiling Weight/ 1.0 (Out of 4) ___ Score The student got the degrees of boiling point in both F and C and labeled it The student got the degrees correct in 1 unit and labeled it OR got both correct but did not label it The student got 1 temperature correct in one unit but did not label it The student did not have any answer or had an incorrect one

  • STUDENT WORK: DISTINGUISHED
  • Slide 21
  • Comments: Great Job! I love how each temperature lines up with its unit. I really know that you understand temperature related to weather and your real life. I am so proud of you. 27 out of 28 4321 Use of Thermometer Weight/2.0 (Out of 8) 8 Score The students got the what does a thermometer measure correct with perfect spelling The students got the what does a thermometer measure correct with incorrect spelling The students did NOT get the what does a thermometer measure question correct or left it blank Reading the Thermometer Weight/ 2.0 (Out of 8) 8 Score The students got both measurements within 3 points of actual in both units on all 3 thermometers The students got both measurements within 3 points of actual in both units on 2/3 thermometers The students got both measurements within 5 points of actual in both units on 1/3 thermometers The students got 1 temperature correct on 1 unit within 5 or more points of actual Relate to real life questions Weight/ 2.0 (Out of 8) 8 Score The student got 4 correct The student got 3 correct The student got 2 correct The student got 0-1 correct Boiling Weight/ 1.0 (Out of 4) 3 Score The student got the degrees of boiling point in both F and C and labeled it The student got the degrees correct in 1 unit and labeled it OR got both correct but did not label it The student got 1 temperature correct in one unit but did not label it The student did not have any answer or had an incorrect one Temperature Rubric
