Lesson plans

It was one of those weeks- fast and furious. I have two KSU student aides and one group of students from the University who are learning to do lesson plans. LOL. For those of you who REALLY know me, lesson plans are ideas that roll around my head all night. I get up the next morning and pull it together. Yes, every time. With the introduction of media- those plans are free flowing. Here is what is in store on Monday....
A clip from Raiders of the Lost Arc showing Egypt
Google earth compared to map on wall for placement of Egypt
Compare terrian maps of Egypt and Mesopotamia (Iraq)
Do a venn diagram on the smart board on the comparison- have students take notes
Show a quick demonstration of flooding and silt
Finish with an entry in the vocabulary book on delta, silt and flooding

How do you fit that into a 3x3 square?

This is the 21st century. Why do we teach educators the same way we used to?
