Lights and Shadows Science Discovery Unit by Sharing Kindergarten

Mary at Sharing Kindergarten was kind enough to send me her wonderful unit, Light and Shadow Science Discovery Unit, to review. I'm so excited to be able to share about this fun unit!

In this unit you will find links to relevant videos, book suggestions, activity ideas and pictures to show you just what you need to get ready for a mini unit on lights and shadows. This is perfect to combine with Groundhog Day this week and even better for prompting students to have discussions about what makes and blocks light. You will appreciate the higher level thinking that your students will be asked to do, as well.

This lesson covers five days of content. The format of the unit is very easy to follow, with pictures of the texts that will be read with each lesson. There are also printables to go along with some of the activities.

Right now Lights and Shadows is on sale in Mary's TpT store for only $4! The lesson planning is already done for you and all you have to do is assemble the materials for each  day. You've got to love something that makes your life simpler so you can focus on the bigger things and this unit does just that. Mary has done all the hard work and you just print it out, get your books and charts ready and prepare your students for a fun filled unit that they will be sure to love!

Head on over to Mary's blog, Sharing Kindergarten, or take a peek at her TpT store
