This lesson is the first science lesson in a unit about the needs of plants and animals including freshwater and sunlight. It helps students begin to differentiate between wants and needs. As nearly all the rest of my lessons, this one contains weather/season components that helps incorporate math into the lesson.
It is intended to be used with first graders, but could probably be used with kindergarten to second grade, also.
This lesson is the first lesson of Unit 3. If you'd like to purchase Unit 3 with its additional 14 lesson plans and exams, you can find it here:
Wants, Needs, & Water: Teaching Science to 1st Graders (80+ Pages) (Common Core)
This is part of the third unit of a progressive 10 Unit (33 week) bundle. If you're seeking a more cost-effective option for multiple areas of elementary science, or need to meet Next Generation Science Standards requirements, you may want to purchase it instead. Find it here:
Common Core 1st Grade Science 10 Unit Progressive Bundle (Units 1-6) 460 Pages!
It currently has the 6 units and includes 85 lesson plans, 24 tests with answer keys, 6 glossaries, and much more.
If you have any questions, please leave them in the Q&A section and I'll respond as soon as possible.
Thanks for the support and have a great school year!
