Groundhogs Nonfiction Unit

I have purchased so many great products for Groundhog's Day, but needed some nonfiction to throw into the mix.  I just created a unit to accompany any Groundhog's Day fun you will have in your classroom.  I can't wait to use it in my classroom.  There is much to offer and it is complete with cute graphics and real-life images.  Here is what you will find:

Did you know groundhogs are TRUE hibernators?  They don't just sleep.  They basically go into a coma state for months!  Also, did you know that they are solitary animals and young only stay with their mamas for five to six weeks?!  I hate that they are pests because they are so cute!

I hope you can find this nonfiction unit to be useful in your classroom.  I taught myself so much about groundhogs while completing this product.  Keep warm blogging friends!  Happy winter!

Polar Bears

Polar bears! Polar bears!  Let's learn about polar bears!!!

I have just completed a nonfiction polar bear unit!  It is complete with loads of visuals, activities, and printables.  The unit includes cute graphics and real life images.

 This unit would be perfect for some of my advanced firsties and great for a second, even third grade classroom.  I took some pictures of the unit.  However, I am embarrassed because the photography is awful and taken with my phone on our kitchen table.  Yikes!  Here goes......

Vocabulary Match-Up activity with recording sheets.

Posters and activities for research and writing!

Nonfiction Reader and so much more!

 I am hoping to use this with my first grade RTI group that needs much challenging.  I think this will be a great project for us to do.  Especially with all this cold weather.  Brrrr!  Plus, who doesn't love to study polar bears?!?!  They are fascinating animals.
