This packet can be used with literature books or informational texts about Pandas. The activities align with the Common Core standards. The book Little Panda by Joanne Ryder would be perfect to use with some of the activities in this unit. For those teachers using the Reading Street Series, I included activities for those skills.
Included are many ideas, chart pieces, Graphic Organizer pieces with premade cards, 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 "Panda Mathematics Centers" that coordinates with this unit.
