I finally finished by first unit!!! It is focused on common core writing standard W.1.2 for first grade. It also has elements of science and art. The unit is about three ocean animal invertebrates: squid, jellyfish, and the octopus. Included for each animal is a nonfiction reader, parts of a (squid) diagram, graphic organizer, 2 writing planners, 2 options for writing paper, and a super cute art project! LOTS of reproducibles.
