UbD (Unit by Design). This integrated unit is designed to teach a third grade class about three biomes, Wetlands, Temperate Forest, and Mountains. It is filled with diverse learning activities that will offer students hands-on experiences as they explore these biomes. The students will have an opportunity to express what they learned in writing, using technology, and creating works of art. They will also be using many different resources such as a field trip, the Internet and books. The unit is designed across the curriculum so the students will have a rich learning experience and walk away with a vast knowledge of the biomes. The final project, our ‘museum’ allows students to showcase their work, while teaching other students about what they’ve learned.
