This lesson plan is designed for 3rd graders to do a project to learn about different natural resources and conservation. The goal of this lesson is to have students come up with conservation plans after learning about natural resources and how they are used.
I love the detailed layout of the lesson plan and it leaves room for additional cycles to be added with the real world activity or need. THe presenter was very meticulous in how she wanted the information presented and it leaves no room for much error.
There is not alot technical aspects of this lesson plan it is more of a resource that could be included in a upcoming science session.

I really enjoyed the opening paragraph that explained that students will learn and explore ways that they can conserve natural resources. It is important for students to understand why we recycle and how they personally make a difference in the world.
From a pedagogical perspective, you definitely cover a variety of pedagogical strategies. From visual representations to collaboration, your project demonstrates multiple ways to engage students and make learning meaningful.
I enjoy the fact that you are scaffolding the lesson by seeing what prior knowledge they may have and building off this knowledge for the remainder of the lesson.
Allowing the students to have the freedom of choosing what resources they would like to present on provides a sense of independence.
