PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Save BIG with the STEM All Year bundle!

I use this as a project based unit based on the theme of roller coasters. The big question we are trying to solve is: “Why doesn’t a roller coaster fall off its tracks?” The students are working toward creating a “real” rollercoaster and rollercoaster book at the end of the unit that will be shared with parents and other students who visit our room for the exhibit. By incorporating the theme of roller coasters across the curriculum, I use this unit to teach the features of nonfiction text as well as nonfiction writing. The students learn 6 major vocabulary words that will teach them what is necessary for them to successfully create a rollercoaster with tubing and marbles. Each day I will teach a nonfiction text feature in reading as well as a science concept.

This unit includes:
6 Nonfiction text features posters
1. photographs
2. captions
3. labels
4. illustrations
5. map
6. glossary
