Our interactive Alphabetical Order Lesson Plan teaches students the steps necessary for alphabetizing and how to apply these steps to place words in alphabetical order. The analytical and critical thinking skills of students will be engaged with observations about when using alphabetical order is important (dictionaries, for example!) and what happens when a letter is missing or if there are two of the same letter in an alphabetical list. This lesson challenges students to put various lists of items in alphabetical order with activities that ask them to insert alphabetized words into a fill-in-the-blank story and alphabetize the objects that the teacher has placed at the front of their classroom.
At the end of the lesson, students will have learned the steps necessary for alphabetizing as well as how to apply these steps to place words in alphabetical order.
