Benchmark – Science Unit Plan

this benchmark, you will complete and revise the “Science Unit Plan”
template, integrated with health and activity, (fitness, body, physical,
emotional, motor skills) and aligned to state content standards, based
on feedback from your instructor. The “Science Unit Plan” template
includes developed lesson titles, summary and rationale, learning
objectives, standards, instructional strategies, differentiation,
materials, resources, and technology for five lessons that includes a
minimum of two of the following content disciplines:

  • Scientific Method
  • Health (Human Movement, Activity, Fitness, Emotional Health, Motor Skills)
  • Physical Science
  • Life Science
  • Earth Science
  • Space Science
  • Engineering, Technology, and Applications of Science

Part 1: Assessments

final part of the “Science Unit Plan” is to include formative
evidence-based assessment strategies to gauge student learning for each
individual lesson.

Using the “Class Profile,” develop an end-of-unit summative assessment and

  • List how you will formatively assess the learning for each lesson.
  • Description of the summative assessment for the entire unit.

completion of your “Science Unit Plan” should fulfill all requirements
of the unit plan and considerations for the successful instruction of
each lesson.

Ensure that your unit plan includes:

  • Age-appropriate
    lessons that incorporate the fundamental concepts of multiple areas of
    science, based on your state standards, integrated to build student
    understanding for personal and social application in science.
  • Integrate
    major concepts in health education by creating opportunities for
    development and practice of skills that contribute to positive
    understanding of physical activity and health education.
  • Instructional
    strategies that promote understanding and skills of physical activity
    that foster active, healthy lifestyles and enhanced quality of life for

Part 2: Reflection

250-500 words, summarize and reflect on the process of creating a
cohesive, weeklong unit plan that successfully incorporates multiple
areas of science integrated with health. What strategies can you use to
create opportunities to promote health education that positively
contributes to a good quality of life for students? Why is this
important? How can this be incorporated into your future classroom?

Support your findings with a minimum of three scholarly resources.
