The purpose of this lesson is to enhance and further their knowledge of rainforest habitats. The students will have been reading books and discussing rainforests during class using a variety of books and photographs. As a culmination of this unit of study the students will spend some time exploring the app, "Britannica Kids Rainforests." The students will be partnered with another student in classroom. The teacher will choose partners based on student compatibility and student learning levels. As the students explore and learn about rainforests they will write two multiple choice questions. Each questions must be based on information found in the app. It must also include one correct answer and three incorrect answers. Forming questions is a higher level thinking skill. Additionally, students will use cooperative learning to create the questions. Students will have to hold a conversation with each other to determine appropriate information and appropriate question format. Once the questions are written the students will bring the questions to the teacher who will input the information into an app called, Kahoot! Once the questions are input into the app the students will log into Kahoot! Kahoot is an app that displays the questions. The student tablets show the question and answer choices. Students are awarded points based on correct answers and the speed in which they answer them. After each question is answered Kahoot shows the four students who have earned the most points. This app allows for friendly competition as well as review of material.
Cross-Curriculum Ideas
Kahoot! is an app that can be used with any curriculum and any subject area. It allows for immediate real time assessment to take place as student answers are immediately sent to the teacher.
The students will use a presentation app such as Haiku Deck to demonstrate their knowledge of rainforests.
