The World Outside


How much do you LOVE teaching science? How much do you LOVE watching your students get excited about learning as they approach science with eagerness and anticipation? Yup, that is what I thought, A LOT! In the primary classroom, science is all about the world around us. I start off science in September with a unit on Living vs. Non-Living. A simple enough topic, yet full of lots of vocabulary, and details on how to recognize if something is alive or not. From there, we move onto animals, lots and lots about animals. From characteristics of animals, like the types of coverings, to animals that can be found at the farm and zoo, students are engaged every step of the way! In the spring we focus on life cycles, ocean life, and bugs bugs bugs!  The world outside covers so much! 
Take a look below for some GREAT resources to help you teach the WORLD OUTSIDE!!

Below are some helping titles both fiction and non-fiction all about the WORLD OUTSIDE :)

A catchy and fun tune to help with metamorphosis


A great instructional video




Learning out the world around us is so important and loaded with tons of literacy and math!  Kids are highly engaged just by the topic itself not to mention all the learning that happens!  So some friends and I have teamed up with Educents for an amazing bundle of instant downloads to teach about the world outside!


My product included will surely be loved by your students!  

Animal Coverings was designed to help students sort animals into the type of coverings they had. Of course, we had to remember we ourselves are an animal and that we have a covering too! This product includes a mini book that kindergarteners can follow along it with the teacher while reading. They can circle sight words or the names of animals on each page. First graders can read the text. Also included is a cut and paste sheet for students to sort animals by their coverings and a center activity which has students sort and record.

Here a student is using her finger to track the words!
Glue is always fun!

Someone LOVED coloring in the pictures of the animals!
Finished product!

Here is a child working on the center sort! I love the way she lined up the cards at the top of her paper!




I also have my Living vs.Non-living Resource Pack included! It is one of my best sellers! There are tons of activities for students! A mini book along with a center activity and activity sheets that would work great as classwork or homework! Perfect for the K-1 classroom!
