A full, thematic done-for-you unit centered around the theme of Spring, made for you on the Smart Board.
It is packed with HD photography, videos, widgets, and interdisciplinary lessons including poem analysis, hibernation, migration, plant and tree life cycles, temperature, weather, holidays, calendar math, and graphing.
This unit is differentiated with a simple poem and more challenging informtion given in the form of an avatar with a child's voice, to be engaging and entertaining. Because of this differentiation, it is appropriate for children as young as Preschool and as old as 2nd grade.
There are captivating time-lapse videos, slideshows, audio files, and tons of interactive activities such as matching, sequencing, erase to reveal, graphing, comparing, and filling in several different graphic organizers for discussion and writing.
Best of all, there is a 27 page Teacher Guide Book that goes along with the unit detailing all of the inquiry, ideas, and activities! You can pick and choose what you want to discover further with your students for each subtopic of the unit.
It is important to us to teach about a season and all of its changes with photography and video instead of illustrations and clip art. It makes the learning more authentic and allows the students to make stronger connections to their immediate envionment. i Cubed Curriculum will be creating every season with this same format so look for them to be coming soon into the store!
