Use a circle/frame Thinking Map to determine places to find information on ants. Also can use Inspiration - graphical organizer software.
Create an intro page for ants with a link to Stink Ants
Use a circle/frame map to map out examples of cycles. Can also use graphical organizer software.
Introduce the story and new vocabulary by presenting the first five sentences out of order on presentation paper or overhead. After going through the five sentences, have the students collaborate in pairs to put them in order. Upon completing the order, share, then have the paired students read the complete story.
Collaborating in groups of four, each person will draw a picture representing something that happened in the story. Draw something you feel no one else will probably draw. Next sequence the pictures. Write captions. Discuss what is missing. Add the missing parts.
Using Hyperstudio, sequence the story. Use words to summarize and images to illustrate. Include scanned images (the drawings), images from the Internet, and from a digital camera. Moving images or animation can also be used.
Share the created Hyperstudio presentations. The audience will respond with some positive qualities and ask questions.
Will go back to the cycle circle/frame map to see how the Stink Ant is a cycle.
Each group will create another ant section following the same 'cycle' of research.
