I created this unit because I have loved doing this with my 4th Graders, and it is my hope to share my tips and tricks with you from what I have learned and found helpful along the way. My goal was to have offered differentiation within this unit so that it may fit your classroom and your needs, yet something that is simple enough that will require minimal prep time on your part, as well.
