Each unit in Layers of Learning is actually four units - one history, one geography, one science, and one arts. Unit 1-5 includes:
Geography: Mapping People
Science: Humans in Space
The Arts: Poems About People
Would you like to build a model of the Hanging Gardens? What if you could make your own map of an imaginary place? Would you like to practice space walking like the astronauts? Or how about learn to write a real poem and have fun doing it? Unit 1-5 includes all of this, plus a printable historical map, and tons of ideas to keep your kids learning with hands-on fun.
In each unit you’ll find a recommended library list, important background information about each topic, lots of activities to choose from for kids of all ages, and sidebars with a bunch more ideas including Additional Layers, Fabulous Facts, On The Web, Writer’s Workshop, Famous Folks, and Teaching Tips. Printable maps and worksheets are included at the end of each unit and may be printed as often as needed for your family or class.
This unit can be used as a unit study, an idea book to supplement any curriculum, or as part of the Layers of Learning Program covering history, science, geography and art in a four year rotation.
