In this unit, scholars discover what it means to be part of a classroom community and how they can make the classroom community a fun place to be. The unit gives scholars a chance to project their own feelings about starting school onto characters in order to make sense of how they are feeling. Through a variety of extension activities, scholars will be pushed to think about how they can use what they learned from the characters in their own lives and in the classroom community.
Sample lessons are provided in this download. The full unit is available for FREE on our website www.matchfishtank.org.
