3. 3. Unit Summary:<br />In this unit, students’ will be exploring different solids and liquids that exist in their surrounding environments. They will be learning about different solids and liquids and will be learning how to distinguish between the two by examining their sizes, shapes, colors, and textures.<br />

6. 6. Standards:<br />1) Classify objects as solids or liquids.<br />6) Compare size, shape, structure, and basic needs of living things.<br />7) Classify objects using the 5 senses.<br />
7. 7. Objectives:<br />Have students’ go out into the nearest outdoor area and explore different objects that are both in solid form and liquid form. Once observing, the students will compare and contrast solids and liquids and will create a presentation to show and explain their reasoning’s to the class.<br />Have students’ go out into the nearest outdoor area and explore several different bugs or animals that may live in that particular area.

8. 8. Project-Based Learning:<br />Project-Based Learning can be defined in many different ways; however, I have my own definition of what this term means. My definition of Project-Based Learning is the following: A creative, innovative approach to learning through projects in the classroom that are both self-directed, and collaboratively hands-on. I believe this approach to learning i great. To me, I view Project-Based Learning as a form of learning that involves hands-onsef-directed tasks among students in the classroom that leads to deep understanding of the material being explored.<br />
