Reflection: Lesson Planning Earth Day - Section 2: Setting a Purpose


While this lesson was designed for use with a sub, it is easily adaptable to fit other needs in the classroom. The text was written specifically to be short and easily decodable for my students. Should it fit the needs of your students as well, it easily could be completed in partners or small groups rather than being read as a class. The work also could be broken into several parts and placed in stations for students to complete with a partner or independently.
