Description

This unit is designed to do 2 things:
1) Meet Next Generation Science Standards for Kindergarten: Caring For Our Earth, AND
2) Make your life EASIER!
Included is everything (well, almost everything) you need for this unit. The teaching of science requires some materials, but I have chosen simple, everyday tools you most likely already have in your classroom.
There are 9 lessons in this unit (some may stretch over multiple days and include 2 “I can” statements), covering major standards dealing reducing human impact on the Earth, PLUS the cross-cutting concepts AND connections to ELA and Math Common Core.

Materials Needed:
* Several books/ebooks/magazine articles about caring for land, water, air and living things
* Movie clips on the same topics
* Pictures of how man negatively affects the environment
* The whiteboard version of this unit: Email primarilyteaching@gmail.com to request the version of your choice: SmartBoard Notebook or Promethean Activinspire.

Book/Video Suggestions: (ANY related books/videos you already have will work!)
Storia’s Earth in Danger (Scholastic’s Storia works on your computer and tablets, too!)
Brainpop Jr. Movies: “Natural Resources” and “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle”
Cloverleaf Planet Protectors series, available as Kindle eBooks (You can read Kindle eBooks on the computer and tablets, too!)

Each lesson includes "I can" and vocabulary printables, question reward tickets for keeping track of the SL.K.3 standard, detailed lesson plans and lesson printables. These printables can be considered as a formative assessment to see if students are truly grasping the content. Lesson 9 is an informative/explanatory writing lesson!

After you purchase this unit, email primarilyteaching@gmail.com to request the FREE whiteboard version of this unit! Tell me your username so I can verify you purchased the unit and let me know if you'd like the SmartNotebook or Activinspire version. :)
