In this class, students will participate in a fun, interactive read aloud of the book "How to Catch a Unicorn" by Adam Wallace & Andy Elkerton. Students will complete a reading response "one-pager" that includes skills for writing and art while also stimulating conversation and collaboration among classmates. Next, learners will interact through a game-based comprehension quiz using Kahoot. After the game, students will watch a Mystery Doug episode entitled, "Are Unicorns Real?" By combining...
Students will learn to respond to reading through writing, art, and dialogue with classmates. Students will also learn to utilize creative and critical thinking to create and construct an original trap that could theoretically be used to catch a unicorn. STEAM concepts will be woven throughout this lesson and also provided through the optional home extension project.
Homework is optional. However, learners are provided with a recipe to create Unicorn Glitter Slime (see below). Ingredients to make Unicorn Glitter Slime include: -One 6 oz bottle of glitter school glue (any color or try mixing colors!) -½ tablespoon of baking soda -1½ tablespoons of contact lens solution Directions: Mix the first two ingredients in a plastic bowl using a whisk. Slowly add the contact lens solution. Slime will begin to form. Here's a YouTube tutorial for making glitter slime: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fJR8WUOHHQ I suggest storing the slime in a baggie, plastic bowl with a lid, or old play dough container. Slime may also be kept in the fridge; just be sure to label the slime as "TOXIC" to prevent accidental ingestion.

-Reading Response "one-pager" will serve as a formative assessment of students understanding of the read aloud. -The Kahoot game will also provide an informal assessment of students listening comprehension skills. -Class discussion will also be used to assess each learner's understanding of concepts.
