This thematic unit takes a language and literacy based approach to content learners. Originally designed for use with English language learners, this unit teaches academic language and content simultaneously. Additionally, all reading activities are connected to meaningful writing activities to help cement learning. This unit begins with the Sun, Moon, Earth system then moves on to the stars and planets. Great for regular education in upper elementary, or I have used it for ESOL students in as high as grade 8. INCLUDES ALL WORKSHEETS/HANDOUTS and a complete materials list, as well as explicit directions for each navigation.
