This unit can be used with informational texts about Beavers. The book Building Beavers by Kathleen Martin-James would be perfect to use for some of the activities in this unit.
Included are many whole group lessons and ideas, student writing activities and literacy activities to help increase rigor! It is aligned with the Common Core Standards.
