A message about Mother Earth…

Today I spend the ENTIRE day unit planning, and let me tell you…. it was exhausting! Having said that, I am so excited to head out into the field and put my plan into action. I have completed all my lesson plans and I am really proud of what I have come up with. Here is a sneak peak and my scope and sequence for my inquiry based thematic unit: Kindergartens Helping Mother Earth! Let me know what you think, or any suggestions you may have. (It’s not very detailed, but hopefully you get the idea!)

  1. Allie, I know nothing about lesson plans, but this looks excellent. I am particularly interested in Lesson 3 – Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot!

    I love that the 3R’s are being taught to children at a very early age. Let’s hope that they are able to convince the adults around them to absorb the same lessons.

    Good job, Allie!
