This product is perfect for Earth Day! It will teach your students how to write an informational text by having them research different ways to go green. This unit will take your students through a 12 day process of gathering facts through research, how to organize their facts, take a survey, how to take survey results and display them on a bar graph and create a final product of an informational text explaining six different ways to go green. The research topics are recycling, protect nature, conserve energy, transportation, gardening and composting and conserve water. I have included all of the Common Core standards that are aligned with this unit, the detailed teaching schedule for each day, lesson plans with list of books used, picture examples of all anchor charts you can use. As a bonus, you can teach your students how to take their informational text and turn it into a digital presentation. Check out the preview file for samples pages of the product! Happy Earth Day!
