On November 23rd, our ESST class was cancelled as there was a LGBTQ community presentation happening. Many of my classmates attended this presentation; however, I did not. Thankfully I have a wonderful classmate who shared her wonderful experience, at the presentation, with me. I cannot directly comment on the presentation because I was not there, but a good reflection of the presentation can be found on Miss Waldbauer’s blog. I think that presentations such as this one, that focuses on inclusion and ensuring that teachers are aware of the important terms and concepts related to the LGBTQ community, is extremely important in order to have a positive and safe classroom experience for all students. Below I wanted to share the presentation handout from the evening.
While this presentation was on, I was at home working on a large unit plan that was due the next day. This unit plan was for my ESCI 310 class. The unit that I developed was Grade Five: Weather. This was a fun unit to prepare and create. I enjoyed exploring for engaging and educational activities that would help my students understand weather better through hands on experiences.
My weather unit can be found below as well as it is included in my Unit and Lesson Planning section of my blog. A full breakdown of my Weather Unit can be found here! I hope that you have a chance to check it out.
Until next time, thank you for reading my blog!
