Lesson: Main Idea Hamburger
Objective: Students will be able to compare and contrast the differences between baseball in the past and baseball in the present.
Do-Now: Think of something that has changed a lot in your life since you were little that is different now, for example maybe the way people used to listen to music, or types of cars that were popular, sports, teams, etc.
Opening: Why do you think the bun is so important when you go to pick up a hamburger? Of course it is important, if you don’t have the bun on your hamburger all of the things will fall off and fall out. Just like a hamburger if you write a sentence about a topic or an idea and don’t provide it with adequate details they will also fall out and not make sense. That is why all of those components are so important when we write a sentence about a topic.
Teach/Model: After reading or reviewing a topic or article. Teach students how to write a written response which includes what the topic is and three sentences that support that topic or details sentences and then have a sentence at the end that is a closing sentence and wraps up what the topic is about.
Display on the board: a picture of a hamburger and label all the parts . Demonstrate how you would choose a topic and write details that explain those sentences. You can go into detail further about writing strong details versus week details.
Independent Work: students will create a hamburger topic sentence and details hamburger. You can have them label the parts, they can also color code it for differentiation. They can do this in small groups, guided reading groups, or independently.
