This Tundra Unit was created to help us meet the Common Core standards while still using a fun tundra theme! Student readers are included in two different formats and can be printed to create student texts at different levels. The unit is focused on the habitat as well as the plant and animals that live there. Text features and several follow-up activities are included!
There are many “parts” included in this unit (far more than we can show in the thumbnails). Please see the list below and our preview for more information!
