The unit is 40+ pages and includes information about the patterns of the moon, sun, stars and seasons. We created this unit with the new Common Core science standards in mind. There are resources here that are designed to be used in a first grade classroom as well as resources for second and third grade classrooms. In this there are many “parts” included (non-fiction texts, follow-up activities, and more.) Pages can be mixed and matched to meet the needs of your classroom!
