This fifteen page Earth Science unit for third graders includes six, some of which are multi-day, comprehensive lessons that address the following standards as part of Ohio Revised Science Standards (2010):
-- Earth's nonliving resources have specific properties
-- Earth's resources can be used for energy
-- Some of Earth's resources are limited.
Students are encouraged to integrate all disciplines (reading, writing, math, science, social studies) as part of some STEM activities. Each lesson plan also comes with extension activities to consider and there is a final post assessment available as part of the overall unit.
