Q:

How to write an activity plan?

A:

Quick Answer

To write an activity plan, a teacher will first start with a description of what the central ideas are in the lesson plan as well as what the learning objectives are for students and then will detail the activity and lessons themselves. The teacher must always take into consideration the age level of his or her students and the subject matter that the activity corresponds with in order to create the best activity plan.

Most activity plans will also include a final third part that is reflective. This third part will detail what happened during the teaching of the lesson or activity and reflect on what worked as well as what did not work. This third part is not necessary, but can be helpful when the teacher goes to create the next lesson plan.

Activity plans are a form of lesson plans that use actual activities to help engage students and teach them new concepts or reinforce concepts. These activities can involve creating writing pieces, creating a science project or playing educational games. There is no limit to what can be an "activity" as long as the teacher can tie the activity into an educational concept. Many teachers use activities in their lesson plans to encourage students to get involved in their education and to provide a break from traditional rote instruction.
