PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Continents: Facts and Features PowerPoint (& PDF version)

This PowerPoint includes slides for each continent (North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and Antarctica). Each continent is highlighted on the world map. The first slide is filled with facts and key features that coincides with the informational mini book included. A collage of beautiful photos is included for each continent to give your students a glimpse of some of these features. A PDF version is also included, if you wish to print and use the slides as anchor charts, or to be included in your bulletin board display.

Oceans: Facts & Features PowerPoint (& PDF)

This PowerPoint covers the 5 oceans of the world. Facts and features are presented for each ocean as well as several photos for each. This PPT also covers the origin of ocean names.

Continents Informational Mini-Book

A 15 page mini book that coincides directly with the facts and features PowerPoint is included in this resource. Your students will fill in the blank, answer questions, and illustrate pictures for each of the continents. This is a great way to keep your students engaged and on target.

NEW: Mini Book #2 With Video Read Along

I have just added a mini book (color and blackline) reader with a video read along. Each sentence is highlighted in the book so that students can follow along as the book is read aloud. This book is different than the first book, as it is not interactive (students don't fill in the blank or write in the booklet). This read along is a great distance learning option, as students can follow along with the video, but printing is not necessary.

Oceans Flip Book (3 Versions)

This resource includes a flip book for compiling the information that your students learn about the 5 oceans. There are three versions. Version 1 follows the PPT slides, Version 2 is open-ended and allows for student research, and Version 3 is perfect for younger kiddos as the text is included and there is space for illustrations.

Reading Passages & Comprehension Questions (3 Differentiated Levels)

Perfect for close reading! This resource includes 3 differentiated reading level passages for EACH of the seven continents. Comprehension questions are included for every reading passage. Level 1 & 2 are one page reading passages for each continent. Level 3 is a two page reading passage for each continent. A one page set of differentiated comprehension questions are included for each reading passage. Please note that informational text generally includes vocabulary or key terms that may be higher than grade level.

Globe Craftivity

Your students will complete a fun globe craftivity to show what they have learned about the continents. This craftivity is versatile, in that it can be used to demonstrate knowledge gained directly from the facts and features included in this unit, or from a student's own time of research. This craftivity includes single lined writing spaces (pictured), and also triple lined writing spaces to meet your classroom needs.

Cardinal Directions

This resource includes several PowerPoint slides and practice sheets on cardinal directions. Two versions are included depending on how in-depth you choose to go. Pocket chart cards that can be placed on your classroom walls to mark North, South, East, West are also included.

Continents Song

Memorize the continents through a fun song. Printable poster and student song sheets are included.

Writing Prompts & Mapping Printables

Writing paper with several prompts are provided in this unit. This resource includes both single line and triple lined paper to meet your classroom needs. Also provided, are practice sheets for determining the location of each continent and ocean, and marking cardinal directions.

Center Activities (Fact vs. Opinion & Matching)

This resource includes two activities that are perfect for centers. Color and blackline versions are included. In the Fact vs. Opinion center, students will read the sentence about the 5 oceans and determine if it is a fact or opinion. In the Matching center, students will match the continent map outline with the correct name.

Bulletin Board Header

Make displaying student work a breeze with a printable bulletin board header ("The Seven Continents")! There are several styles choices included. Also included are headers for each of the continents, as well as enlarged continent outlines in color and blackline.

Pocket Chart Cards

This resource includes pocket chart cards for each of the 7 continents (North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and Antarctica), the 5 oceans (Pacific, Atlantic, Arctic, Indian, Southern), and cardinal directions (North, South, East, West). Color and blackline versions are included to meet your printing needs.

Assessments

This resource includes two short assessment sheets, one for the seven continents, and a second assessment for the five oceans. Each assessment includes matching, and true/ false. Several of the other mapping printables provided can also be used as an assessment tool.
