This unit can be used with any book or books about Maps and Globes or the Continents. The book This is the way We Go to School by Edith Baer would be perfect to use for some of the activities in this unit.
Included are many whole group lessons and ideas, student writing activities and literacy activities to help increase rigor! It is aligned with the Common Core Standards.
I have also created a packet of Mathematics Centers called "Maps and Globes Mathematics Centers" that coordinates with this unit.
Included in this packet:
Picture Cards to help with discussions about the book
Student Story Map
Student writing pages
Student writing pages with and without prompts
Student Writing pages about each continent
Continent pieces to make maps
