This well-organized, four-week thematic unit targets early elementary students and contains eight lessons focusing on the habitats of coastal Georgia. Students explore the animals and plants in their local habitat, addressing topics ranging from ecology to pollution to consumerism. Students will conclude their studies by creating a poster, and later an oral presentation of their research and a diorama. Each lesson has clear objectives, a materials list and procedures, and essential vocabulary; and the overall unit begins with an organized and detailed overview and calendar. The pedagogy is very strong, but educators outside of the local area will find it necessary to make location-specific modifications. The unit uses a nice combination of literature, nature logs, student observations, and field trips. It also includes a comprehensive appendix listing texts and websites used, as well as a number of images to enhance lesson implementation. This unit is aligned with the Georgia Performance Standards.
