Contains: Prior Knowledge/Building Background/Previous Learning
TW and SW create a concept web by brainstorming ideas for what other life kingdoms there could be besides protist and fungi
(previous learning). (Students may come up with animal, plant.)
TW activate prior knowledge and scaffold relevant learning by reviewing the previous days activities and vocabulary. We have
already learned of two kingdoms of living things; fungi (the yeast) and protist (the protozoa). Today we will learn about three more;
animal, plant, and moneran.

Language Objectives
SWBAT build on prior knowledge by
completing a KWL chart.
Beginning English learners will scaffold
previous vocabulary and reinforce new
vocabulary with visuals in three-column
notes. Intermediate and Advanced
learners will label the compare/contrast
diagram of plant versus animal cells. All
three levels will demonstrate vocabulary
and reading comprehension through
dialogue journals.

Before Reading and Writing: SW create


KWL charts, and create three-column
notes in science/dialogue journals.
During Reading: Original partners of one
Beginning English learner and one
intermediate or advanced English learner
will partner-read a text on cells. At given
intervals, partners will stop and discuss
understanding.

TW monitor reading by circulating the


room with SOLOM assessment.

Wrap-Up: Compare/Contrast animal and plant diagrams, amoeba paramecium posters, bottles with balloons, pond water samples,
vocabulary for word wall, videos, and related books will be set up as a display to celebrate the unit.
Question for next step: What happens when specialized cells come together and work together?
