Teacher: Hanna Beliveau Date: 11/8

School: Shepardson Elementary Grade Level: 1st grade Content

Area: Science

Title: Sorting Lesson #: 2 of 3

Content Standard(s) addressed by this lesson: (Write Content Standards directly from the standard)

Mathematics, Standard 4.2 Shape, Dimension, and Geometric Relationships: Indirectly

measure lengths of rocks and order by size

Understandings: (Big Ideas)

Comparing and sort rocks based on size.

Seeing difference is rocks

Inquiry Questions: (Essential questions relating knowledge at end of the unit of instruction, select
applicable questions from standard)

How did you know what rock was bigger?

Evidence Outcomes: (Learning Targets)

Given rocks of different sizes every student will be able to compare them and sort them in order from
largest to smallest.

Given a strip of construction paper, and a sheet with pictures of rocks on it, every student will be able to,
compare rocks and sort them in order different ways

I can: practice comparing sizes of rocks and sort them by size.

This means: I understand how to compare sizes and order them based on that.

List of Assessments: (Write the number of the learning target associated with each assessment)

- Observation

- Whole group discussion

Post Lesson Reflection

1. To what extent were lesson objectives achieved? (Utilize assessment data to justify
your level of achievement)

The lesson objectives were achieved. Each group was able to work as group for a final
product. They were all sorting and comparing the rocks. They went above and beyond
my expectations and were noticing things about the rocks that I didnt even consider.
Each student was able to answer what rocks were the biggest and what ones were the

2. What changes, omissions, or additions to the lesson would you make if you were to
teach again?

If I were to teach this lesson again I would provide more time for the student to
complete each part because some students didnt have time to finish. I would was have
something for the students who finish early to do. I also would have each student sort
their own set of rocks to see if they can do it individually and not just have someone else
compete it for them.

3. What do you envision for the next lesson? (Continued practice, reteach content, etc.)

As a next lesson, I envision having the students pick out their favorite rock. This will
become their pet rock. As a class, we will sort out every ones rocks by size as well as
other qualities. This will get the whole class to work together and not just in groups. This
will also reteach the students what was done in the past lesson as well as expand on the
