This unit can be used with any book or books about Homes Around the World. The book Homes Around the World by Judy Nayer 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 "Homes Around the World Mathematics Centers" that coordinates with this unit.
