Bering Land Bridge Lesson Plan
Bring excitement into your classroom by using differentiated instruction to have students learn about the Bering Land Bridge and the Migration Theories. I have differentiated instruction for the Bering Land Bridge lesson plan in many ways. I leveled vocabulary sheets (3 versions), leveled note sheets (2 versions), and provided up to 4 choices of activities based on the Multiple Intelligence Theory. I chose a diary activity, cartoon strip, play-doh and a song for the students to choose from. Giving students a choice of the activity they want to do can spark student interest. They also can’t complain about the activity since they are the ones that picked it. When I provide students with choices I see more engagement and less behavior issues.
I focused on the Anthropology theory of migration over Bering Land Bridge from Asia to Alaska as well as the Native American theory of them crossing both ways because they believe they have always been here. I went into the how and why they traveled and ended with the bases of civilization.
The vocabulary words I chose for this lesson are:
- Bering Strait
- Land Bridge
- Ice Age
