In total there are:
85 Lesson Plans
6 Final Exams
12 Vocabulary Quizzes
2 Diagrams of Organ Systems (Skeletal and Digestive)
3 Weather Graphs

The preview includes: the answer key to a vocabulary quiz, Unit 4 glossary, notes/unit plan for Unit 5, a worksheet, and the lesson plan for planting lima beans.
Lesson plans include discussions, activities, and questions for journal entries. The plans are made to be hands-on and fun.
These units are VERY interactive. There are a lot of group projects (to help satisfy NGSS requirements) and discussions.
You can DOWNLOAD the first lesson plan of Units 1, 2, and 3 are for FREE:

You might also want to purchase the weather charts or the glossaries for Units 1-6. They can be found here.
Tracking the Seasons: Recording Weather Data for Elementary StudentsScience Vocabulary for Elementary Students (110 Words in 7 Glossaries)
I have listed CCSS comparability on each lesson plan, (but only for 1st grade). If after purchase, you feel that one of the standards was not met or there have been standards met that I have overlooked, please leave it in Q and;A so that I can address it.
I have also included the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and National Standards for Art Education (NSAE).
This IS a progressive bundle and will ultimately have 10 units spanning 33 weeks. If you purchase now, you will receive any revisions and the other FOUR units for FREE! I'll be uploading individual units in the near future, but this bundle is your more cost effective option.
Unit projects include group presentations about the planets, growing lima beans, creating a person and structures from clay, and collecting and analyzing weather data. Weather and seasons are main themes throughout the year, and each unit builds on this concept.
The lesson plans are written as if you do not have a science textbook.
Thanks for the support and have a wonderful school year.
