Space Case

After Easter we are gearing up for two full weeks of space themed fun with our first graders.  It’s always one of our favorite units to teach and the kids learn SO much about our solar system.

Here’s a little {sneak} peek at all of the activities that are included in our Out of This World Math and Literacy Centers set.

*Note to buyers . . . all of these activities were sold separately last year.  We’ve just bundled them together now into one complete set.  If you’ve already purchased the set please take a minute and go back and download the revised copy.  We found a few formatting errors that are weary eyes somehow overlooked and we now have them all fixed.

Many of you have expressed an interest in seeing how we incorporate literature into every unit we do so here is a freebie we would like to share with you. It includes two creative writing lesson plans and art projects that we will be using during our space unit.

  2. Do you use Pages from iWorks to create?
