This is a hands-on unit and is easily differentiated to meet the needs of complex learners.  Narrowing the focus to simply understanding the big ideas reduces the complexity of the activities in this unit while also allowing students to participate in modified activities at grade level for science.  Many reading and research materials are available online and can be supported by using digital reading software.  Because this unit is student-centred and inquiry-focused, it is easier to differentiate the content and product produced by the students by increasing or decreasing the complexity of level and depth of understanding.

⭐ “This resource was a fantastic addition to my social studies binder! Teaching social studies can sometimes feel overwhelming due to the multitude of expectations to cover. However, this resource offers a clear outline of the specific expectations addressed in each lesson, simplifying tracking of student progress. I appreciated how the resource offers both whole group and small group opportunities, ensuring that all students’ needs are met. Additionally, it succeeds in making what can often be a “dull” topic much more interesting and engaging for many students! I highly recommend incorporating this resource into your teaching repertoire!” – Mercedes B.
