An interesting way to learn about dietary requirements, this resource prompts learners to look at what someone in the U.S. eats and compare it to what someone in South America eats.

Auntie Litter is at it again, this time helping scholars understand the value of clean air. After discussing the historical and current dangers of air pollution, they explore particles in the air through two simple experiments. After discussing some key vocabulary, the class watches a 15-minute podcast documenting Auntie Litter and the Pollution Patrol's quest against Mr. Grody's destructive trash-burning. They learn about harmful gasses and ways to prevent them. Extend this across multiple subjects with any of the reading, math, social studies, art, science, and cooking activities listed here. You could easily make this a two-week unit.
Students read about, identify, and practice using prepositions. They first identify and use prepositions for places, such house, street, cities, states, and continents.
