Sooooo...worst nightmare. I created this unit once, and when I went to save it in google docs, I couldn't find it! I am embarrassed to admit, I had to create the whole thing again. I hope that some people are finding these posts useful, because I have absolutely LOVED teaching these units! In years past we would just spend a day on each and then teach migration, animal adaptation, camouflage, and other elements separately. One of my teaching partners suggested we do one massive unit. Our kids have had so much fun. I included the large papers for the anticipation guide that we use in class. I glue them to butcher paper, and then we can refer back to what we thought we knew throughout the unit! Thank you so much to JoAnn and Dawn for their super sweet emails. I think it is only fair that I share with everyone since I have gotten amazing freebies from Rachelle @ What the Teacher Wants, Ms. Arnold @ Oceans of First Grade, and adorable ideas from Sarah at First Grader at Last (not to mention the MANY others)!
Towards the end I included a few literacy activities including a -ump word sort. I apologize if there is a clipart overload---sometimes I just can't help myself!
