I do consider this a Science unit, but I have to be honest. Almost everything I do in my kindergarten classroom comes back to literacy. I believe that our literacy lives are the sums of our experiences. Kids bring their experiences and schema to the table when they read and write. If they have had limited experiences at home, we need to provide experiences for children in our classrooms. As we are reading and writing, during our science lessons, kids are constantly making connections between different books we have read, experiments we have done, and new questions they have formed. This is a Reggio Inspired Inquiry unit.
