All About The Arctic will help students learn, understand, and practice using the science terms used when talking about life in the Arctic. It also will provide you with resources to make your unit come to life. By integrating science and nonfiction into your language lessons, you not only create an enthusiasm in your students, but you can create the "hook" you need to engage even the most reluctant learners.
This packet includes many guided reading resources including: student readers, magazines, projectable books, emergent readers, main idea and detail articles and MORE! The activities are differentiated so that all of your learners can enjoy learning about life in the Arctic throughout your unit of study. It also includes: student vocabulary books, center activities, real life pictures, essential question posters, recording pages and more!
Students will learn and use these vocabulary words:
Each word has a vocabulary card (with a real life picture). My students love being able to make real life connections from looking at the high quality photographs.
There are also interactive notebook activities that go with some of the vocabulary words as well as team building game suggestions to help your students truly understand the meaning of the words.
There are multiple games that you can play with your students to help them learn about life in the Arctic.
Centers include: Vocabulary Centers, ABC Order, Scrambled Sentences, Syllable Sort, A Fact and Opinion Sentence Sort, (MANY!) Writing Center activities (including "write and wipe" pages), Am I an Arctic or Antarctic Animal sort, and more!
It also includes recording pages, a matching game and individual student books where students can write and illustrate their vocabulary words.
I also include 8 hands-on activities that you can use while teaching your unit.
This packet is great for guided reading extensions and lessons, anchor charts, pocket charts, bulletin boards, centers, and word work activities. You can also put the words on your word walls!
Help your students LOVE learning about the Arctic and give them the proper vocabulary to use! You will love the readers, activities and materials provided.

**NOTE: If you have purchased my "All About Reindeer" pack, there are three articles in this pack that were also in that pack. The price to this pack has been reduced in case you wanted to buy this one as well. I felt that this pack would be incomplete without including the introduction articles to the Arctic for you and your students to enjoy.**
