Lesson Plan Title : Magazine Hunt

Age Range: Grade 3 through Grade 5 (Elementary Level)

Overview and Purpose : Can you picture that? This lesson will help your students make a connection between their vocabulary words and real world objects.

Objective: The student will be able to create a collage of pictures showing the definitions of the vocabulary words.






Have each student cut out pictures that show the definitions of the vocabulary words. They can either make individual collages or one class collage for each word. Some words may require a series of pictures put together to convey the meaning. These should be circled or glued on a separate sheet of paper before being added to the collage. The students can then discuss why they think each picture was chosen.


An extension of this lesson would be to have students cut out pictures to create a rebus for one of the definitions. The puzzles can be bound into a book and placed in the language center for students to try to solve.
