But I'm here to share our fun with Magnificent Moon today! This was a good unit for us, we haven't done much with outer space, so Chloe really enjoyed this unit. These units are very well thought-out. We love how there is such a variety - videos, read alouds, informational reading books, and, our favorite part - LAPBOOK stuff
galore!! This is something new to us - we haven't tried lapbooking, but we are LOVING it!! You certainly don't have to turn the unit into a lapbook, but if you wanted to, then they make it very easy for you to do that.
This unit was broken up into 5 days - and it is very clear what to cover each day.
Day One: What Exactly is a Moon?
Day Two: Getting to Know the Moon
Day Three: The Story of the Moon
Day Four: Science Secrets of the Moon
Day Five: Cool Things About the Moon
We learned so many new things - Chloe is STILL talking about visiting the moon!! We even supplemented some of our own book finds - so if you do this unit - make sure to add The Moon by Felicia Law - what a fun read!! This unit study has daily studies on astronauts which was also
fun - again, you could go MUCH MORE in depth than we did in first grade, but that is what I love about these units - you can tailor them to the ages you are teaching - and add to them, or decide what not to do based on your children.
IF these sound interesting to you and your kids - there are some good deals right now:
A Giveaway for THESE!!! (to be announced TOMORROW - so stay tuned!!)
