LESSON PLAN: Shapes
TEACHER:
MATH: Second grade

I. OBJECTIVE: 17 out of 20 learners will demonstrate understanding of/ability to identify four out of four shapes: sphere, cube, cylinder, and cone and give three examples of each by completing p. 179 in Addison-Wesley Mathematics and WS# 1, in pairs, with 90% accuracy.

II. SET (WHAT): WS# 1, geometric shape manipulatives, Addison-Wesley Mathematics book, and pencils. Students will be seated during the demonstration of the lesson. Expectations for the lesson are that students will listen carefully to the directions so that they can successfully complete page 179 and WS# 1.

III. PROVIDING INFORMATION (HOW): (questions, modeling, sequencing, learning principles, monitoring, etc.) The teacher will model how to identify the shapes: sphere, cube, cylinder, and cone. After finishing, the teacher will ask the students questions about the four shapes.

IV. GUIDED PRACTICE (MATERIALS): (monitoring, learning, practice, directions, questions, etc.) The teacher will model identifying the shapes: sphere, cube, cylinder, and cone using the geometric shape manipulatives and pointing out examples of the shapes in the room. The teacher will select a few students to point out some examples of the shapes in the room.

CLOSURE (EVALUATION): (Does the activity meet the objective? All learners assessed?) 17 out of 20 learners will identify four out of four shapes: sphere, cube, cylinder, and cone and give three examples of each by completing p. 179 in Addison-Wesley Mathematics and WS# 1, in pairs, with 90% accuracy.

V. INDEPENDENT PRACTICE (CONTINUING EVALUATION): Working in pairs, students will complete page 179 and WS# 1 identifying and giving examples of a sphere, cube, cylinder, and cone.
