In this lesson, students will explore where key locations and routines will occur within their classroom. They will learn to associate these phrases with a visual schedule to help aid in this discovery process. Students will at the end of the unit be able to move throughout the classroom with little to no adult support outside of the individual's IEP requirements.

This is the first unit of the school year. It is for the first course in the AP Capstone program, AP Seminar. This class is designed to engage student in the research process, specifically to provide them with the skills necessary to navigate source material and compose argumentative writing and presentations. This unit's theme is Identity.
All students will use classification systems to describe groups of living things; compare and contrast differences in the life cycles of living things; investigate and explain how living things obtain and use energy; and analyze how parts of living things are adapted to carry out specific functions.
Learning looks like students engaged in something that interests them. It looks like a variety of things going all over the classroom. Perhaps it’s an art project in one part of the room, video editing in another, and some students cutting up magazines for a collage on another. Controlled chaos is the best environment for learning.
The purpose of this unit is for students to learn and understand how to compare and contrast. In the opening of the lesson a video will be shown to engage learners on the definition of compare and contrast. The students will see a visual of using a venn diagram. Throughout the unit, learners will have an opportunity to use online venn diagram and create their own.
