Description

Overview:
Students will read aloud the book Joseph Had a Little Overcoat by Simm Taback and will determine relationships among story events by using conjunctions such as the word because to signal and explain simple relationships. The students will discuss the events in the story using a story sequencing activity and will identify conjunctions in the text used in the sequence. The lesson is then extended to teach the students the creative thinking process of SCAMPERing, which will be used to further the study of conjunctions. This divergent thinking process will result in a product that has been changed from its initial state to something new and improved, different and unique. Student partners will illustrate their final product(s) and will explain their “scamperation” orally using conjunctions in their speech. An optional follow-up assignment is explained at the end. This lesson was developed by NCDPI as part of the Academically and/or Intellectually Gifted Instructional Resources Project. This lesson plan has been vetted at the state level for standards alignment, AIG focus, and content accuracy.
