Instructional Ideas
  • Plan the day to combine ELA and science periods
  • Update focus walls to reflect the unit's concepts; keep past unit items and work in a folder for easy access
Classroom Considerations
  • The fifth unit in a series of 11 created by Core Knowledge; units in the series and lessons should be taught in order
  • Set aside ample prep time to gather materials and make copies
  • Lessons follow a similar routine; reading time, skills practice, extension opportunities, and take-home materials
  • The interdisciplinary approach adds science to the ELA
  • None
