These are images of some of the student work from my lesson plans at Gateway. The first image is of Mendhi Hands. The lesson plan covered a bit about the culture of India and the tradition they have of painting their hands, feet and arms with Henna in preparation for a wedding ceremony. The second image is of An Endangered Species lesson I taught. Each child receive a card with an animal on the front and information about that animal on the back including, name of the animal, their habitat, the food they eat and what threatens them. I presented a power point tha discussed endangered animals all over the world, in the united states and some specific to Idaho. I entered several of these in the Endangered Species contest which is Nation wide. The requirements were for the students to draw at least two endangered animals in their habitiat, include something they eat and include one of their threats. they drew with pencil and colored with colored pencils. Both lessons were K-5th and altered to fit the grade level.
