This is an amazing thematic unit that connects English language arts, science, and mathematics in a very fun and exciting way. The book, If You Hopped Like a Frog by David M. Schwartz, is the primary motivation for this unit. This unit has activities, lessons, and ideas for Grades Kindergarten through 6 and is aligned to the Common Core State Standards, as well as California Standards for each grade level, K-6. In addition, there are differentiated activities to meet the needs of your GATE and ELL students. This unit has over 20 activities/lesson ideas that are hands-on, fun, and extremely engaging; teaching students all about ratios and proportions using animals and real-life situations.
