72 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, writer's notebook 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.
This unit covers the SS3G1 Locate major topographical features on a physical map of the United States.
a. Locate major rivers of the United States of America: Mississippi, Ohio, Rio Grande,
Colorado, Hudson, and St. Lawrence.
b. Locate major mountain ranges of the United States of America: Appalachian, Rocky.
SS3G2 Locate and describe the equator, prime meridian, and lines of latitude and
longitude on a globe. A few slides direct you to Brainpop but is not necessary for unit completion. There is in-depth content, videos, online interactives, writer's notebook tasks, etc. If anything, it is a great starting point for you to add your own teaching style, etc, or you could use this as a stand alone unit (this is what I use in my class).
