Science and Social Studies

These are the units I taught in Kindergarten or First Grade.  Some materials featured in these units are not available for download.  In particular any songs, videos from United Streaming (Discovery Education), and printables from copyrighted materials such as Scholastic News/National Geographic for Kids/or Other Types of Books cannot be emailed to you or uploaded to this site.  I've done my best to point you in the direction of any online materials that need to be purchased.  If a link is not provided for the materials, no information is available about the resource.  I hope you understand! =)
