Part of Lesson Plan: Ruminant Digestive System

Activity Overview / Details

Have the class help you list on the board key points from the notes you just completed. Make sure the class agrees with the items on the list before moving on. Remind students about the video you started the class with, show it again if you like. Tell them this is now their turn to be the song writers. They may choose any song they like and change the lyrics to include the information we just learned about the ruminant digestive system. I prefer to have the students complete the assignment within the class period because they may get off task if there is no sense of urgency that the assignment is due right away. This can be challenging for some students so be sure to offer help and suggestions to students. Some examples that help students who feel stuck are children songs like; "Mary had a Little Lamb", "Wheels on the Bus", "Hokey Pokey", "Row Row Row Your Boat", etc. Singing in front of the class can be intimidating so I prefer to tell the students we will be sharing in small groups, not in front of the class. Remind the class as the end of the class is approaching so they have time to wrap up their songs.
