This is not a unit that you would start on the first page and go to the last. I don't design units for that purpose. I create pages that will work with your curriculum to help kids learn the concepts through experiments and activities that can be put in a science or writing station and done with a partner. I also create foldables and pages for your interactive notes that can either take the place of a boring study guide or enhance the one you are using. I like to put emphasis on one concept in each activity or note page so that the material is easy to learn and to remember.
