Product Description
A few years ago, the science curriculum for our district drastically changed, and with all the focus and energy being placed on test scores, especially in math and language arts, I wondered how I would ever have the time to teach all of the new science curriculum. We also knew that a state science test was in the near future which covered everything from 3rd grade forward. After struggling somewhat the first year, I came up with a plan to incorporate as much reading and science as possible. During our third 9-weeks, the focus was Life Science (mainly animal habitats/ecosystems/biomes: adaptations, survival, plant/animal interdependency, and food chains/webs). I took the objectives and spread them out over a seven-week time period (6 weeks for habitats and environments, plus one for food chains/food webs) and created a cross-curricular, rich unit that incorporated the science concepts with whatever skills we were learning in reading at that time. This 5-page unit includes instructions, suggestions for teaching the unit, reading/trade books to use during reading, and a research form to be done at the end of the unit (contains some writing).
