One of my favorite things about teaching 1st grade was all the really fun units that drove the year. Then I moved to second and while we still had units it just didn't have the same feel as first grade. This year is my first year teaching a straight 3rd grade (the past couple have been blends). I was determined to find units that would be new, fun, and include the academic stuff too. We started with Bears....I have a bunch of pics that I need to get into a post. We have now moved onto Forces and Motion. Last year we did this unit in mini-form. It is one of my favorites! Thought I would share some of the work we have done so far.
