I am linking up today with my girls Amanda & Stacia from Collaboration Cuties today!
I know many of you are REALLY close to the end of the year, I'm jealous! We aren't done until June and still have to complete our state testing next week!
During this time of year you are either scrambling to keep your students engaged and focused and/or thinking of all the great things you want to do next year. If you haven't taught Ecosystems yet there is still time to order this series I just discovered! If you're planning for next year grab them before you forget about them! :)
I found a new to me series called "What If There Were No ______?" by Suzanne Slade. There is a book for each type of ecosystem! Each of the books are written from the animal's perspective and describes their importance in their ecosystem. For an ELA connection these books are also perfect for teaching or reviewing cause and effect, point of view, and compare and contrast (if you use more than one book)!
We just started our ecosystem unit on Friday by watching Brain Pop and added vocabulary to our Interactive Science Notebooks.
