Steps for Librarian

 

Introduction

SMS: The last 7 days you’ve been keeping track of how much sleep you got and if you felt rested.  Do you think you got enough

 

Today, we are going to search for information using Kid InfoBits on how getting enough sleep helps our health.  We will also be creating a wellness action plan to get enough sleep.

 

Procedure

SMS : Brainstorm with students a list of key words on sleep

Have students search Kids InfoBits and using the titles of the articles find and article that looked like it would give reasons why sleep is important to our health.

One article I found was ( New Moon Girls, March-April 2010 v17 i4 p8(2) Sleep: sweet smart solution: do you get the zzzs you need?  BODY LANGUAGE Cordes, Helen) but there are other good articles also.  Encourage students to explore and evaluate different articles too.

Have students take notes has they read their selected articles.  A graphic organizer will help them organize their thoughts.  Example of one graphic organizer the students may find helpful. (http://freeology.com/graphicorgs/pdf/thematicweb.pdf )

After students have completed their research, reflect with students about their experience searching for information and discuss the information that they found.  Create a chart on what happens when you don’t get enough sleep.
