Welcome to my ED 554 Technology Unit Plan!
This is a dinosaur and paleontology focused science unit for second grade.
This unit is designed to combine inquiry, technology, research, creativity, science, and language arts all together to form an enjoyable and educational unit. This unit used a hot and interesting theme of dinosaurs to cover the science SOL 2.5 about learning earth’s history through the study of fossils. Students will take that theme of fossils to design and make, research, and then draw the fossilized skeleton of their very own dinosaur.
This unit’s success is dependent upon the use and access of classroom technology. The use of technological resources to deepen and expand student learning is monumental. At least one form of technological teaching aid is used per day for this unit. This unit often uses PowerPoint to present visual and auditory learners and enjoyers with comprehensive cues and information. This unit will build and expand as further use and experience is gained through teaching it.
