The words birthstone and Zodiac sign recently came up in my classroom during a classroom discussion and my students wanted to learn more. “What is my birthstone?” “What is a Zodiac sign?” “What does it mean?” They asked! I found it very difficult for me to explain to them in terms that they could understand. So I created this kid-friendly mini-unit to allow teachers to provide their students an understanding of what their birthstones and Zodiac signs are, and what they mean.
This unit includes an interactive student mini-booklet students will create to learn all about their birthdate and birthstone, a birthday survey activity sheet, birthstone poster, month abbreviations poster, a whole group slideshow lesson to teach Zodiacs, Zodiac symbol poster, Zodiac survey activity sheet, character trait cards for each Zodiac, character traits Venn diagram, and Zodiac symbol cards for each Zodiac.
It also includes an interactive and adapted practice page to allow lower functioning students or students that cannot write to participate.
Teach your students or children this life skill. Teach them all about their birthday, birthstone, and their Zodiac sign and symbol with this fun and engaging mini-unit that they will love!
