119 Slides of Unit Plan awesomeness! This unit plan took me about 8 hours to complete so your $5 will be well-spent. It includes your necessary base knowledge, numerous videos and interactive sites for the students to explore, quiz sites, science notebook writing opportunities, etc. This unit is for the new GSE 3rd grade standards. I am teaching 3rd grade this year so keep a look out for all new products in 3rd grade over the next few months. Upload to Google Classroom and students can follow along/go on interactive adventures when prompted.
