Charles Darwin Natural Selection, Unit plan, Guided Note packet, and Animated PowerPoint

Charles Darwin Natural Selection, Unit plan, Guided Note packet, and Animated PowerPoint

his is an update of my previous lesson. Everything is included plus a lot more. Please check the preview to see the new additions I have added. Thank you for making this the top selling Charles Darwin product. Updated to include 28 pages of activities and interactive lesson supplementary aides. Summary of what to expect: This is a four day engaging constructivist lesson that focuses on the life of Charles Darwin and his innovative and successful idea of natural selection. Natural Selection can be easy to understand with students at a secondary level, but it is difficult to master. This lesson plan not only introduces the topic of natural selection, but allows students to actually discover it on their own the same way Charles Darwin perceived it. In the first two days, students will take a voyage on the HMS Beagle to the Galapagos Island where they will encounter different species of finches. They will log in their journals what they observe on this island. In short, they will draw, tag, bag, and send the different specimens of finches off to England for review just as Darwin did himself. The idea is to teach students that species change and do NOT stay the same as generations pass. In the second two days, students will learn on their own how natural selection works through a interactive competition activity. This is a classwide event which can be crafted differently based on the diversity of each class. Through this competition, students will learn how the most suitable characteristics (beak of the finch) will survive in the current environment that allows those characteristics to prevail. Students will compete in different environments which consists of dry land, flash flooding, and at night. I also encourage you to utilize my unique style of notes as it is designed to integrate authentic and ongoing assessment throughout the content phase. I hope you enjoy this lesson as it took me approximately 80 hours to create. Other science teachers have used this lesson to introduce evolution in their classrooms and has been used as a template to help science teachers create lessons that are differentiated to meet the needs of diverse student learning styles at a science teacher conference day. Students will really get the concept if you go through this activity with them.

Teaching Professional Development, Portfolio, Organization, and Observation Logs

Teaching Professional Development, Portfolio, Organization, and Observation Logs

As you know, professional experience and organization is a result of your hard work. Most of that hard work goes unnoticed. A lot of teachers I know forget most of their side- experiences because they go above and beyond and never have any type of accountability to showcase that work. I have developed a tool for you that will assist in both your professional experience and organization. I have put together a set of three different professional development portfolio logs that will keep all that hard work and your volunteering organized and ready for review at a moment’s notice. These logs are a great way to organize your personal and professional experience. For every hour you instruct in the classroom, observe, attend conferences, and/or take advanced education classes, you need to log it down so that you can maintain and validate your personal, professional, and field experiences. These logs can be put together as a quick-reference, cosmetic portfolio binder that you can keep in your classroom or at home. The event sheets contained within these files can be taken with you to any event that will help build to your professional portfolio or resume. These logs provide the organization you need to fulfill any type of professional development event. I have provided several copies of these logs to multiple disciplines and professions already. Teachers, tend to enjoy these logs as they are custom for them. However, these logs can be used in multiple ways through diverse mediums across various professions.
