Summarize a written text read aloud or information presented in diverse media and formats, including visually, quantitatively, and orally.
Interpret information presented in diverse media and formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively, orally) and explain how it contributes to a topic, text, or issue under study.
Analyze the main ideas and supporting details presented in diverse media and formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively, orally) and explain how the ideas clarify a topic, text, or issue under study.
Interpret information presented visually, orally, or quantitatively (e.g., in charts, graphs, diagrams, time lines, animations, or interactive elements on Web pages) and explain how the information contributes to an understanding of the text in which it appears.
Explain the relationships or interactions between two or more individuals, events, ideas, or concepts in a historical, scientific, or technical text based on specific information in the text.
Determine the meaning of general academic and domain-specific words and phrases in a text relevant to a grade 5 topic or subject area.
Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative and connotative meanings; analyze the impact of a specific word choice on meaning and tone
Integrate information presented in different media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively) as well as in words to develop a coherent understanding of a topic or issue.
Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative, connotative, and technical meanings; analyze the impact of a specific word choice on meaning and tone.
Evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of using different mediums (e.g., print or digital text, video, multimedia) to present a particular topic or idea.
Grade: 06, 07, 08
Determine the central ideas or conclusions of a text; provide an accurate summary of the text distinct from prior knowledge or opinions.
Grade: 06, 07, 08
Integrate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text with a version of that information expressed visually (e.g., in a flowchart, diagram, model, graph, or table).
Grade: 06, 07, 08
Compare and contrast the information gained from experiments, simulations, video, or multimedia sources with that gained from reading a text on the same topic.
It's a dark and stormy night, and in the shadows of his garage laboratory, Moby tries to create a new friend with a combination of organic parts and re-purposed household objects. Working from Moby's point of view, students must arrange and connect organs and systems into increasingly more complex configurations. Through the game's 11 levels, students will make inferences and test hypotheses about the basic components and functions of the circulatory system, respiratory system, digestive system.
In this lesson plan, which is adaptable for grades 6-8, students use BrainPOP resources to explore the primary functions of various body systems. Students will also explore the parts of each system and their respective roles through a collaborative role play and an online simulation during game play. In addition, students will construct a prototype of a body system using real-world objects. This lesson plan is aligned to Common Core State Standards. See more »
In this lesson plan which is adaptable for grades 6-12, students use a free online science interactive to learn about the organs and organ substructures of the human digestive system. Students work in teams to identify the digestive system's parts and structures, and drag and drop them to the correct position within the body to build a complete system. Students will also attempt case studies where a problem within the system must be linked to the structure affected. This lesson plan is aligned to Common Core State Standards. See more »
In this lesson plan, which is adaptable for grades 3-12, students use BrainPOP resources to explore each system of the human body. Students then create a collaborative BrainPOP-based lesson to teach other students about a selected body system. This lesson plan is aligned to Common Core State Standards. See more »
