Reach for Reading units are organized around a “Big Question”. This interactive bulletin board is meant to be used throughout the Unit 5: Everything Changes as students explore the big questions of “Why is nature always changing?” Students show their understanding of the concept by writing or drawing to answer the big question. The class can keep adding throughout the unit as they think of new ideas. Though the question is “Why is nature always changing?” the bulletin board uses the statement “Nature changes in many ways.” to encourage children to observe changes, patterns and cycles in nature. Instead of “BIG QUESTION” I’ve retitled it to be “BIG IDEA” for this unit since it’s not a question! On the bulletin board, the flowers can be connected with green yarn to look like stems. You could also let students point out ideas that are connected, and have them use the yarn to illustrate this.
