Irina Kaplun/ Miramar College/ Child Development 111/Instructor: Jennifer Andrews, M.A./ Lesson Plan 2/Moving and Learning Across the Curriculum by Rae Pica Transportation Title: By Air or By Sea page 267 What it teaches Goals and Objectives: Familiarity with various modes of air and sea transportation Problem solving Key experiences To explore large motor skills through movement Direct aim To learn about different types of transportation and how they move Indirect aim To use sounds to support each method of transportation/developing awareness of sounds Key Concepts/ Vocabulary Air, Sea, Transportation, Boat, Airplane, Helicopter, Hot Air Balloon, Kayak, Bicycle What you’ll need You will need pictures of the methods of transportation you will choose to use for this lesson. (ex: bike, car, helicopter) What to do I would begin by having children sit in the circle and introducing that today we will study transportation. Then, I would show the children pictures of various methods of transportation and ask to identify them, move the way they move. I would also ask children why we need transportation and their favorite method of transportation. We would end by leaving the circle like a car into the next activity How to ensure success You may choose to have all of the discussion at once, with the children brainstorming answers. Have them stand and act out the motions of each mode of transportation, one at a time, as you call them out, or immediately follow each idea the children have with the appropriate action(s). What else you can do Children can be asked what methods of transportation they know without pictures first. School age children can match words to pictures of transportation and write a story about their favorite method of transportation. Children of any age can draw their favorite method of transportation. Books about transportation can be used in the classroom to reinforce. Recommendations/Ideas Make pictures of transportation big and colorful. Let each child be a car, a bus, a helicopter, etc. around the room. Have fun!
