Layers of Learning Unit 2-20 includes 4 units all in one. You find:
Geography: The Caribbean Sea
The Arts: Renaissance Art 2 (continued from Unit 2-19, but it can stand alone too.)
Reenact the voyage of Columbus and make a map of the Treaty of Tordesillas. Create a Caribbean post card and make plantain sandwiches from Jamaica. Make your own electromagnet and a simple homemade motor. And learn more about Renaissance art while practicing perspective and playing “Where’s Waldo” with a Brueghel. All this and much more is in Layers of Learning Unit 2-20.
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.
If you wish to print a physical copy of this PDF unit we highly recommend that you take a digital copy to a copy shop to have it double sided printed professionally; the units are completely formatted and ready for perfect printing results. The unit can either be bound in a comb binding or three hole punched and placed in a binder.
