For my micro-teach lesson I chose to teach a grade 4 science lesson. As part of the curriculum, the students must learn to follow step by step instructions so I taught the students how to make water bottle boats.
Excerpt from my Reflection:
"For my micro-teach today I did a science lesson on how to build a water bottle boat. After the lesson today, I felt really good about how it went. As soon as I said what the topic was, the class was instantly interested in what we were doing. I really enjoyed having access to the computer to show them a step-by-step video of how to build a water bottle boat, having a visual aid helps the students know what their boat should look like at each step. I also reminded the class at the beginning of the lesson that the materials should be used responsibly or else the boat would be taken away, this was to ensure everyone was being safe during the activity due to the materials used. Once the beginning instructions were done the class ran smoothly. All the students stayed on task and when they needed help, they asked for it. I felt as though I was very encouraging, even when a few students came to me with boat issues. I told them I would help them or to try something a certain way. If it was an issue that couldn’t be fixed, I gave them new materials to try again. Overall, I believe the students did a very good job making the boats and they had a lot of fun testing them out in the water."
