For the Full PBL Unit

Make learning to do research fun! Using the PBL Model, students get to use close reading articles, books, pictures, videos and technology to research a habitat. This process helps students gain skills in problem solving, investigating, and engages them in challenges. This unit integrates math, social studies, ELA and writing. Through all this learning, they end up with a final project and get to do a presentation.

Don’t forget that leaving feedback earns you points toward FREE TPT purchases. I love FEEDBACK!

Also, follow me and be notified when new products are uploaded. Sometimes new products are on sale the first 24 hours that they are uploaded. It pays to follow!

As always, please contact me with any questions.

Thank you so much,

Special Treat Friday, Heather McKinsey
