Review Activity: Bloom’s Taxonomy
Use your core curriculum to . . .
 Find an indicator for each level of Bloom’s
taxonomy.
 Find an indicator for the psychomotor and
affective domain.

Why “backward”?
 The stages are logical but they go against
habits
 We’re
used to jumping to lesson and activity
ideas - before clarifying our performance goals
for students
 By thinking through the assessments upfront, we
ensure greater alignment of our goals and means,
and that teaching is focused on desired results

STANDARD II: Students will understand that the elements of weather can
be observed, measured, and recorded to make predictions and determine
simple weather patterns.
Objective 1: Observe, measure, and record the basic elements of weather.
Identify basic cloud types (i.e., cumulus, cirrus, stratus clouds).
Observe, measure, and record data on the basic elements of weather over a period of time
(i.e., precipitation, air temperature, wind speed and direction, and air pressure).
Investigate evidence that air is a substance (e.g., takes up space, moves as wind,
temperature can be measured).
Compare the components of severe weather phenomena to normal weather conditions
(e.g., thunderstorm with lightning and high winds compared to rainstorm with rain
showers and breezes).
Objective 3: Evaluate weather predictions based upon observational data.
Identify and use the tools of a meteorologist (e.g., measure rainfall using rain gauge,
measure air pressure using barometer, measure temperature using a thermometer).
Describe how weather and forecasts affect people's lives.
Predict weather and justify prediction with observable evidence.
Evaluate the accuracy of student and professional weather forecasts.
Relate weather forecast accuracy to evidence or tools used to make the forecast (e.g., feels
like rain vs. barometer is dropping).

Big Idea
“Big Ideas” are typically revealed via –
 Core
concepts
 Focusing themes
 On-going debates/issues
 Insightful perspectives
 Organizing theory
 Overarching principle
 Underlying assumption
Big Ideas: Examples
 Words
are power.
 Reading is more than just the words on a
page.
 Relationships between quantities can be
represented by graphs, tables, and equations.
 Healthy nutrition practices influence all
aspects of our lives.
 All life is interrelated as evidenced by the
differences and similarities among species.
More Big Idea Examples
 Great
artists often break with conventions to better
express what they see and feel.
 Price is a function of supply and demand.
 Friendships can be deepened or undone by hard
times
 History is the story told by the “winners”
 F = ma (weight is not mass)
 Math models simplify physical relations – and even
sometimes distort relations – to deepen our
understanding of them
 The storyteller rarely tells the meaning
of the story
You’ve got to go
below the surface...
to uncover the
really ‘big ideas.’
Unpacking the Standard
What is the “big idea” that the
standards, objectives, and
indicators are based on?
Grade: Grade 4
Subject: Science
Topic: Weather
Big Idea/Enduring Understanding: Science Benchmark
Weather describes conditions in the atmosphere at a certain place and time. Water, energy from the sun,
and wind create a cycle of changing weather. The sun's energy warms the oceans and lands at Earth's
surface, creating changes in the atmosphere that cause the weather. The temperature and movement of air
can be observed and measured to determine the effect on cloud formation and precipitation. Recording
weather observations provides data that can be used to predict future weather conditions and establish
patterns over time. Weather affects many aspects of people's lives.
