PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Creative Water Unit

This six week, fully integrated, unit is designed to meet the International Baccalaureate (IB) Framework although it will work great for anyone looking for a creative unit focused on water.

This unit includes literacy, math, science, action projects, etc.
It is designed to emphasize global awareness, arts integration, the multiple intelligences, and 21st century learning and innovation skills.

Lessons are project based and are primarily taught through the arts; visual arts, poetry, drama, storytelling, and creative movement.
