Kindergarten Writing
Opinion Writing

This unit covers ELA and Science standards. Students will collect data about sharks and whales and make educated opinions about which they think is better the shark or the whale. I completed this unit with my kindergarteners, however I feel like this unit is more geared towards 1st-3rd

See the blog post about this unit.
