The development of a literature-based integrated science unit for a multi-age classroom of 6- to 8-year-olds is based on a review of professional literature and a search of library materials for children. The integrated science unit on Iowa Owls and Bats allows children the opportunity to study animal life in their neighborhood, thus developing a better understanding of the real world around them. The print rich environment with a whole array of literature genres and developmentally appropriate expressive activities gives the children a secure and predictable environment in which to learn and grow socially, mentally, emotionally and physically. This integrated thematic unit allows children the opportunity to make connections in all areas of learning.
