I Lost, You Win!

Well, that's the end of the road for me and my Oklahoma Sooners! It was so much fun participating in the March Blogger Match-Up. You can keep following along by following the winner of last night's game, Michigan State (AKA Learning in the Little Apple)

Now, on to the GOOD stuff! My loss also coincides with the launch of an updated unit I've been working on F.O.R.E.V.E.R.
As you can see, the reason it took so long is that my simple "update" became a complete overhaul! The "old" unit was fun but just a bit too basic. Today's non-fiction studies require more rigor. You will find the same "fun" activities from the first unit, just with updated graphics and fonts. There are also many new activities designed to help your students delve deeper into the desert habitat, the plants and animals that live there, and the adaptations they have made to survive. You can see a picture preview below.


Here's a closer look at some of my favorite activities in the unit:
To launch your Junior Biologist Desert Habitat study simply print the name badges and field guide covers. You can choose from a variety of worksheets included in this pack to fill the Field Guide. Use a book binder to give it a professional look. 
There are 6 different "Fact Sheets" included in the unit. They all have worksheets that can be used with them.
The Cacti Fact Sheet has an accompanying craftivity that is fun for students and looks nice as a hallway display.
My favorite craftivity is the Desert Habitat Fact Mobile or Flap Book. Hard to photograph but so fun to make!
That's just a small snippet of all that is included. There are also two original stories for shared reading, a performance piece, a mini book, and lots of practice with "reading for information".
In honor of my loss I'm giving away a copy on Facebook. Click the picture below to be redirected to my Facebook page and leave a comment with your email address. I'll pick a winner by 10 pm EST Sunday, March 29th.

I'm also Giving away the old version FOR FREE!! For a limited time, you can click below to download the old version. Enjoy! I've learned a lot since 2012. LOL. :)

I also uploaded a Junior Biologist Habitat Guide. This unit includes Junior Biologist badges, field guides, and worksheets for the study of any habitat. If you're looking for an easy way to make your habitat studies more streamlined and consistent this is for you. The perfect supplement to any curriculum or book.

You will find the same Habitat Fact Mobile or Flap Book as in The Desert Habitat Unit just a more generic form that can be used with any habitat.
As always, thank you so much for stopping by!

  1. Good to know. Unfortunately, I found this article too late - I already found the answer on another service. BTW, if anyone needs to fill out a OR OREF 001, I found a blank fillable form here "http://goo.gl/JoRHbi".
