Final Project – Shannon Payne Bourke

Subject: English

level: 5th grade

The following lesson I have prepared covers the topic of question words and will teach the class when to correctly use certain words such as ‘where’, ‘how many’, ‘when’, ‘why’ etc. These words are extremely important as they are the most common words used to start a sentence and will be a great base for the class to understand and then expand on. I will start by explaining the words and why they would be used, then have an activity that the whole class will participate in and finally will have the children carry out and exercise individually.


  1. to ensure the children understand the differences between the words and can identify when to use a specific word in the correct place.
  2. by the end of the lesson the children can formulate grammatically correct sentences using the question words I have thought in the class.
