Project #12 Part B

Delivering a Smartboard Lesson

     In this lesson, Callie and I decided to do a lesson plan we found on the Alabama Learning Exchange. The one we based our lesson plan off of one called Sense Suspense, but after editing it a little more we found a new lesson to deal with similar tasks, listed on the SmartBoard Exchange. We decided we were going to deliver a smartboard lesson plan to a kindergarten class about using the five senses and how we use each one daily. Callie did most of the video speaking, and I worked mostly on the technical side, editing the slides. We worked collaboratively on this project and think we came out with a really great, easy lesson plan on the five senses. 


  1. Great lesson plan! What ACCRS standards are addressed with this lesson? Also, I think this lesson would be a good way to explain to the children some of the disabilities associated with these senses. The kids could reflect on what it would be like to be deaf or blind, and you could even have someone who is deaf or blind talk to the kids and tell them what their life is like without the ability to fully see or hear!

  2. OH thats a good idea! Originally we got the idea from ALEX's Sense Suspense that covered:

    SC(K) 7. Classify objects using the five senses.
    ELA2013(K) 25. Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose informative or explanatory texts in which they name what they are writing about and supply some information about the topic. [W.K.2]
    ELA2013(K) 35. Add drawings or other visual displays to descriptions as desired to provide additional detail. [SL.K.5]
    ELA2013(K) 38. Demonstrate command of the conventions of Standard English capitalization, punctuation, and spelling when writing. [L.K.2]
    ELA2013(K) 40. With guidance and support from adults, explore word relationships and nuances in word meanings. [L.K.5]

    but after looking into that a little more, if we went even further into it about deaf/blind students it could be a different lesson and cover:
    SC(K) 7. Classify objects using the five senses.
    TC2(K-2) 2. Identify applications and operations of various technology systems.
    TC2(K-2) 7. Use digital tools to access and retrieve information.
    TC2(K-2) 8. Use digital environments to exchange ideas with individuals or groups.
    TC2(K-2) 10. Design original works using digital tools.
