Goals:
 to introduce students to the basic properties of earth, air, water, fire - to show how we use and come in contact with the four elements in our daily lives - bebeficial aspects (resources) - to alert students to certain dangers posed by these elements - to make students aware the theat pollution poses to our environment and what can be done to change (conservation)

Materials:
 SVE instructional materials primer multimedia pack - filmstrip, audio, experiments, activities, worksheets. Science and SS text and workbooks - STC and FOSS material kits fro experiments
Introduction:
 Use the globe and ask, "What do you see and think of when I show you this model of the earth?" Record on a web on board and go into our unit of elements using what the students have brainstormed.
Development:
 actual experiments simulating the concepts of each element. 1 to 2 experiments for every part of the unit. read alouds and book sets going more into depth volcanoes, rocks, resources, ladnforms etc. I will model, demonstrate and explain all concepts while teaching the students to analyze and test and prove certain aspects of each element.
Practice:
 unit worksheets in packet form will be distributed after demonstrations.
Accommodations:
 See modifications chart attached to lesson plan
Checking For Understanding:
 SWBAT complete KWL chart fro every element and class will contribute to the whole
Closure:
