Get ready for the new school year!
This 27 page packet contains three mini units on apples, Labor Day and leaves to be taught in September, or any fall month. Each unit is made up of five sessions. The packet contains teacher instructions, student printouts, parent letters, and bulletin board title pages.
The items in this unit meet Third Grade Common Core State Standards in the areas of writing, reading, speaking and listening, social studies, science, math. Please see the preview document for a complete list of the standards met by each mini unit.
The teacher directions are written as I would teach them in my third grade classroom. They are step-by-step, but give you leeway for your own interpretation and expertise.
Please note: the Labor Day unit doesn't have to be taught in September. It can be used as a social studies lesson on community workers and maps in any month.
