*Frames of Learning (Highlight frames for which you are preparing)

*Conceptual Understandings: Conceptual understandings are statements of essential ideas that accompany each of the overall
expectations. Conceptual understandings include concepts, skills, attitudes, and habits of mind.
- We are responsible for our own choices and decisions.
- Everyone wants to be calm, focused, and alert.
- We each need different strategies, environments, and support to be calm, focused, and alert.
- We can learn how to adapt our behaviour to suit a variety of social circumstance, including the customs of different
groups of people.
- We use different tools to measure different things.
- The attribute we are measuring determines the tool we will use and therefore the unit of measurement.
*Overall Expectations (OE): Knowledge and skills described, in general terms, in each frame. Educators focus on the overall
expectations when co-constructing learning with the children.

2. Demonstrate independence, self-regulation, and a willingness to take responsibility in learning and other endeavours.
16. Measure, using non-standard units of the same size, and compare objects, materials, and spaces in terms of their length,
mass, capacity, area, and temperature, and explore ways of measuring the passage of time, through inquiry an play-based

The Educators’ Intentional Interactions :
How educators engage with children’s learning- students; strategies; materials; environment – based on observations

Respond: The educator shares with the children where the walk will be beginning and ending. The educator writes down
possible estimations on how long the walk will be on the board. The educator will decide who is partnered together with
prior knowledge on who works well together and who doesn’t. “How many steps do you think it will take to get to our
destination and back?”

Challenge: “What are some things we need to bring on our walk?”; “What are the way we are supposed to behaviour on our
walk?”; “How many steps did it take to get to our destination today?”

Extended: The educator will then compare the results from the predictions to the results. “Who was the closest?”; “Who was
the furthest?” This will eventually be compared to the rest of the walks we take this term.
Teacher Questions/Prompts:
“For todays, walk we will be going to the __. On our way there we will be using pedometers to measure how many steps it
will take to get there and back.”
“Before we begin, what are some predictions of how many steps it will take to get there?”
“How should we act on our walk?”
“Who should we always be with during our walk?”
“Are we making good or bad choices?”
“Whose estimation was the closest to the actual number of steps?”
Assessment Documentation
The documentation for this lesson will be conducted through photographs on the i-Pad. There will also be a poster in the class
with the number of steps each walk takes.
Materials required:
White board markers/ White board
Poster that tracks each walk
Possible learning next steps for learning:
This lesson will continue to occur during all of our walks no matter what we will be discussing that current walk. At the end of
the walk, each distance will be compared with one another and will be placed in order from farthest to closest.

Script how you plan to engage the students with this opportunity (if required)

Minds On:
- For the minds on portion of the lesson we will be reviewing the expectations that are for the walk.
- We will also be discussing what we will be seeing on the walk.
- I will also explain to the students that we will be using a pedometer to track our steps.
- I will also explain that these steps will be compared at the end of the month with the other steps.
- Students will then be able to give predictions of how many steps they think the first walk will be.
- We will write these predictions on the board.
- I will then organized the students in partners and we will begin our walk.
- The action portion of the walk with be the walk itself.
- During the walk, some students will have the pedometer clipped to them.
- At the end of the walk, the students will hand in the pedometer.
- For the consolidation portion of the lesson, we will compare the number of steps during the walk with the predictions.

- I will then add the number of steps to our tracker on the community walk side of the classroom for everyone to see.
