this in a prior lesson)

general knowledge will help.
Central Focus, Overarching What are the important understandings and/or core concepts that you want students to
Goal, Big Idea, or Essential develop?
Question(s) (5) Students will explore concepts related to migration and movement by describing why

Liberty so they can use the pictures as a reference
 I will support my IEP student by allowing them to work with a partner.
 I will support my EIP and RTI students by linking their background knowledge with the KWL
 I will support my gifted student by having them research Ellis Island to help push their

Background Knowledge-
According to Gambrell and Mazzoni, an effective teacher assesses what students know and link new ideas
and skills to prior understandings. I did this by having students fill out a KWL chart before diving into their
exploration of Ellis Island.

Instructional Anticipatory Set:
Strategies and TW say, “ So we have been talking about immigration but does anyone know how most people came to

TW write their questions under the want to know section of the KWL chart.
TW say, “Awesome! We came up with a lot of really great questions! Today we are going to do a web
quest today that will take us on a virtual tour of Ellis Island to prepare us for our Immigration day
tomorrow! Before we head to the computer lab we are going to watch a brainpop so we can get a basic
overview of Ellis Island.”
TW play Brainpop
Once brainpop is over TW say, “Can someone tell me something new that they learned from the
SW answer
TW discuss student answers
TW say, “Okay so now we are going to head over to the computer lab and once we get there I want you
to go ahead and log on and wait for further instruction.”
Once we arrive at the computer lab
TW say, “Now I want you to find this webpage “
TW write the webpage on the whiteboard so students can use it as a reference.
TW pass out the Web quest once students are all logged onto the right place
TW go over the questions with the students and will do the first page with them to help show them how
it works.

Individual/Small group:
TW say, “I want you all to start on your webquest you can always work with a neighbor if you need to and
if you have any questions just raise your hand!”
Students will work on the web quest
TW be walking around and helping students

Connection to the Arts How would you incorporate creative expression through drama, movement, visual arts, and/or music into
(1) the lesson?
Students will look at photographs on the Ellis Island web quest.

Higher Order Thinking Create at least 5 higher-order thinking questions

Questions (HOTQs) On webquest:
(10)  Describe what an immigrant may have felt when looking at the statue for the first time?
 What do you think immigrants have in their bag? Why do you think they packed those items?
 Why do you think doctors only gave a 6 second exam?
 Why did some people think of Ellis as the Isle of tears instead of The Isle of Hope?
In Lesson:
 Can someone tell me what they learned from the brainpop?

Re-teaching, Re- Describe at least one new strategy for re-teaching the content and/or skills presented for students who
Engagement, Practice did not successfully meet the learning objective(s) or learning target(s) identified in the lesson.
Teacher will pull these students in a small group and will explain what Ellis Island is. TW show the video
on the scholastic website that show them what it looks like to help reinforce their idea of Ellis Island.
Extensions (2) Describe at least one new strategy for enriching, challenging or extending the content and/or skills for
students who successfully met the learning objective(s) or learning target(s) identified in the lesson.
To enrich my students knowledge of migration and movement I would have them go to the scholastic
website and go to the ‘Meet Young Immigrants” section. In this section students can read about
immigrants who are closer to their age, which might help them understand what it is like to be an

Lesson Closure (5) Give a brief synopsis regarding how you will wrap up the lesson. How will students summarize and/or
share what they have learned related to the objective or learning target?
TW go over what the students learned on their webquest and will fill out the “learned” section of the
KWL chart.
TW remind students to dress up for tomorrows Immigration Day!
TW pass out a citizenship test for the students to review for Immigration day.
