Who are the People in Your Neighborhood in Your Neighborhood? Social Studies Lesson Plan Teacher will assess students presentation of their hats and little books.

Which part of the lesson do you think will be the easiest for you to teach? I think that the easiest part will be my introduction of the town of Jollywood and the little video. Which part will be most challenging for you to teach? I think the most challenging part will be having the students make the hats. I might be able to have them bring in things from home to make the hats. (material, old hats to fix up, little pins) How will you follow up or extend this lesson? I will follow up this lesson by sending home an assignment to interview a neighbor about what they do for a job. Students can present their interviews in class the next day. What can you do for students who dont grasp the concepts? For students who dont grasp the concepts I can have students work with the teacher and a small group and practice writing good rules. Which part of the lesson, if any, do you think might need to change? I might want to have the students dress up that day to present their jobs to the class instead of just a hat. When you were writing this lesson plan, what was the most difficult part? The most difficult part of the lesson was finding an interesting lesson for the unit.
