Using the free Wonder Science video, “Gems,” as a starting point, this digital product presents a thought-provoking 5E lesson plan that takes students through the NGSS 3D learning components for NGSS 1-PS4-2 and 1-PS4-3.
There are a variety of ways to learn through this 40-page Lesson Plan in the classroom and at home. The Gems Lesson Plan presents multidisciplinary activities that use the topic of the video as the inspiration for math, language, reading, and writing activities based on grade-level Common Core State Standards.
Additional activities allow students to interact with real scientists by sending their inquiries to Wonder Science and sharing their learning through the Wonder Science Student Spotlight page. Moreover, students can engage in mindfulness while listening to the music and drawing/writing whatever comes to mind. Please view the Table of Contents for specifics and get ready to wonder!
