This K-1st unit will have your students going wild over polar bears. The Common Core aligned nonfiction unit includes science, math, and literacy activities all relating to polar bears. A nonfiction reader with realistic photographs offers tons of information about polar bears. When your young scientists finish reading they will be ready to write a simple report, conduct an experiment and write or draw their "lab" observations. Also included are printables showing: story elements and how to use them to write or draw a book report, compare/contrast fiction and nonfiction literature, short vowel discrimination, syllabication, and a pocket chart chant. Math printables include dividing equally, attributes of shapes and an addition game. An art and "cooking" activity are also included. Great for home "schoolers" too. Your students will think polar bears (and learning about them) is cool!
