This unit covers K-LS1-1, K-ESS2-2, K-ESS3-1, and K-ESS3-3. This unit starts with students learning about how they can reduce, reuse and recycle so that they can work together to create a poster that raises awareness. This leads into students findings out what plants need to survive by reusing a recyclable bottle as the container to grow the plant. Then, students will learn about how animals can change their environments first hand using earthworms followed up by watching videos and reading about other animals that change their environments. Finally, students will learn about the relationships between animals and the places they live by going outside to investigate the life beneath their feet!
