These lesson plans are the lessons I used during my three week pre-internship block. Although I created a unit plan, I quickly released that I had to slow down the unit. My original unit included all simple machines but as you see here, I was only able to go in depth with levers and pulleys (both simple machines that the students wanted to learn about when they filled in their KWL charts).
In addition to my lessons I have linked my unit plan, which is also backwards by design. I did go off my unit plan because I quickly noticed that my students where not catching on to the concepts.
