Your students will learn about the ways plants and animals respond to the changing seasons, migration, hibernation, dormancy, what causes the seasons, and more. This is a complete unit that includes an 8-page informational text, teaching notes for 11 lesson plans, pieces for the lapbook, a unit test, and a 183-slide PowerPoint! The unit includes activities for exploring how the amount of daylight changes through the year, compare the migration habits of six different animals, trace the migration path of endangered whooping cranes, and a game modeling how black bears prepare for hibernation.

The nonfiction text included in the Plants and Animals through the Seasons Unit is a great way to practice close reading in the content areas. The informational text can supplement or replace your science textbook.

As your students read and learn about how plants and animals respond to the changing seasons, the lapbook gives your students a way to show and practice what they have learned. These pieces are great for formative assessment as you work through the unit.

The unit includes suggested teaching notes with lesson plans and objectives to use as you go through the unit and the PowerPoint. Of course, you are always free to put your own spin on the unit! The PowerPoint doesn't have anything fancy to distract from the content. It just has great photographs that go along with the content in the text.

The informational text is perfect for meeting your Common Core Reading Standards!! I wrote this Plants and Animals through the Seasons Unit because I couldn't find anything appropriate for my third-graders! I wanted something that incorporated information that wasn't too simple. I wanted to be able to meet the new demands of the Common Core for informational text. This text will provide your students with a rigorous text, but it's written in a way that will allow your third, fourth, and fifth grade students to be successful in reading and comprehending the information.

This unit specifically addresses these Florida Next Generation Sunshine State Standards:

SC.3.L.17.1: Describe how animals and plants respond to changing seasons.

SC.3.N.1.6: Infer based on observation
