This unit can be used with literature books and informational texts about Day and Night. The book The Night Worker by Kate Banks 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.
I have also created a packet of Mathematics Centers called "Day and Night Mathematics Centers" that coordinates with this unit.
Included in this packet:
Student Story Map about machines in the story
Student writing pages with and without prompts
Day and Night sorting chart with premade cards
Nocturnal/Not Nocturnal Animal Picture Sorting
Night and Day Workers Matrix Chart to use on document camera
