Lesson Sketch for EDT 313 Investigation Hook lesson

Individuals completing this plan: Heidi Huiner and Anne Marie Mackenzie

Lesson title: What do you touch? Investigation Topic: Touch

2 Early Learning & Development Content Standards indicators: 1. Use classroom and household tools
independently with eye-hand coordination. 2. Sort and classify objects by 1 or more attributes.

Instructional objectives: list 2- 3 observable/measurable objectives for this lesson. Use precise language w/ action verbs.
The student will:
1. Students will be able to identify which part of the body deals with the sense of touch.

2. Students will be able to demonstrate their understanding of textures.

3. Students will be able to categorize different textures into 4 main groups.

Experience(s): Describe authentic (real life, hands-on not representational) materials and enticing/ creative experiences in
which children are actively engaged. Experiences should encourage experimentation, problem solving and language
development. How will the experience(s) inform you on the children’s prior knowledge and interest in the topic? How can you
use this data to inform the development of your Integrated Investigation Plan?
Authentic materials: paper, markers, scissors, glue, cotton balls, tin foil, sand paper, sponge, felt.
Enticing/creative experiences: Students are tracing their hands and their peer’s hands and figuring out
their different texture categories
-Students are discussing with their peers their different groups and putting items that match each
category in them
Prior Knowledge: talk about the 5 senses and what they already know about them and what they have
touched or seen in the house.
Data: We will ask the students what category the material goes in and then have them do the lesson and ask
them if anything needs to be moved or if it is correctly placed in the right spot.

Assessment of student learning:

1. Data to be collected-
Collect the different texture groups each child created/named

2. Method used to record/aggregate data-

Record on paper

3. Interpretation of assessment data-

Identify which children were making incorrect groups/not understanding

Reflection on lesson: In one page double spaced explain why the instructional objectives, experiences and
materials were chosen. Describe how well the children learned/achieved the instructional objectives. Finally include
a description of how the experience provided data to inform the development of the investigation.

After much discussion with our cooperating teacher we decided to teach on the topic of touch. We 

were very specific when choosing the instructional objectives for the students. Our goal was for the 

students to be able to identify what part of the body addresses touch and the students were able to discuss 
that it was their hands that they use for touch. After determining that the hand deals with the touch the 

students dug deeper and were able to differentiate different types of textures such as sand paper, cotton 

balls, and tin foil. Once identifying the different textures they were able to sort items into specific group. 

We chose these objectives because they were able to build on each other and take the child to the next level

in regards to understanding the sense of touch. We chose these materials because first and foremost they 

are extremely safe for the students in the classroom and they are easily accessible. We also chose the items 

of sand paper, tin foil, sponge, felt, and cotton balls because they are common things that the students 

probably have witnessed before. We did not want to randomly introduce students to items on top of 

introducing a new topic. We felt that that could become very overwhelming to the students so we tried to 

stay with items that they could have seen their parents using or around their house. Overall, we tried to 

have a hands on experience for the children because we personally felt that when the students are able to 

touch and manipulative things it allows for concrete ideas to stick with them. We wanted the ideas to stick 

and be with the children throughout the lesson plans. 

The students did a pretty good job demonstrating and learning the instructional objectives. 

Immediately when we began working the students were able to identify that their hand dealt with the sense 

of touch. We then reiterated it with the students tracing their hands and helping cut them out to stick their 

textures on. After, we introduced the different textures to the students and they were able to see the 

differences in the item if it was being smooth or soft or rough. However, if we were to change it we 

thought we would use fewer textures in the beginning because it became overwhelming to the students. So 

for the first lesson we thought of using opposite textures in our lesson to help the students to learn to 

differentiate textures. The students were able to get the basic understanding but then we wanted to deeper 

there understanding and be able to connect it to real life experiences and feelings. So from this hook lesson 
plan we were able to connect it to our future lessons that we implemented in the classroom. We wanted to 

deepen the thought process of the students rather than just introducing a topic to the students. Overall, the 

hook lesson plan provided data for us to plan for our future lessons. We were able to observe the students 

crafts and see if they were receiving a basic understanding or if they seemed to not notice the differences 

and needed further instruction. We noticed many students needed further instruction and that we needed to 

focus on the specific textures in more depth.
