Thematic Units

In my classroom I use integrated thematic units to teach various skills to my students throughout the school year.  The internet is a great resource for finding ideas when planning lessons.  This page will be a compilation of ideas that I have found on the internet, through various resources or my own original ideas.  Feel free to make any suggestions and I hope that you will find this page useful!

Check out these links to articles about the benefits of utilizing integrated thematic units to teach concepts:
