Polar Animals Unit Revised and a thank you to Blog Hoppin'!
Well, I have officially been bloggin' for almost one year and I have officially been a member of TPT for about a year and a half. Amazing things have been happening to me for these past months; mainly a wonderful support from amazing teacher bloggers! When I became an author on Blog Hoppin', I didn't even have my own blog... luckily Deanna took a risk on me and allowed me to be a part of Blog Hoppin' WITHOUT my own blog and I thank Deanna for that! I also look back on my first TPT resources and shake my head in wonder at JUST WHAT WAS I THINKIN' when I posted those first units! So..... I have been revising, revising, revising those first units and my Polar Region unit is one of them. My units are written to be a supplement to the other amazing units that are being offered on TPT. I concentrate mostly on the science/social studies end of the units; although I do offer an occasional literacy or math component to them. I like to start with a book that I write that incorporates realistic photographs with simple text. (I actually import the pages onto my interactive whiteboard rather than print the pages.) Each of my students have their own book with the same words as the book imported onto my white board. Each child then illustrates their book with drawing/cutting techniques that I teach after we have learned each animal fact. In my revision, I have added black line drawings of each animal because I know that some teachers just do not have the time to teach step step drawing techniques. If you purchased my Polar Region unit previously, please, please re-download it! It is almost a totally new product! Here is a preview of what the revised unit offers:
FULL COLOR REALISTIC PHOTOGRAPHS THAT CAN BE PRINTED AND BOUND INTO A BOOK OR PROJECTED UPON AN INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARD (Not all pages are shown)
As I said previously, this unit was written to supplement your existing Polar Animal unit. Polar bears and penguins are always fun to teach when the new year begins! It also fun to learn about some of the other cool animals that live in our polar regions and for kids to realize that polar bears and penguins do NOT live in the same habitat!
Peace and blessings to all! If you are interested in my polar unit, click the image below! And if you already purchased this unit, re-download it!
