This unit brings together science with informative writing using penguins (flightless), and birds that fly. There are full lesson plans with common core standards for one week. The graphic organizer is differentiated using labels and pictures with sentences on one, pictures only on the other, and an organizer for only writing. The organizer is a Venn diagram with a cute penguin/bird design. Also in this unit is a self editing checklist for the students, pictures of finished products, Turn and Talk Technique directions, and a journal cover page.
