Open Access Graduate Research Paper
This unit is the culmination of work on taking the NGSS for weather and climate and creating an inclusive unit for third grade students. At the time this unit was started, many teachers were taking the NGSS and creating units for the classrooms. This unit integrates math, literacy, and social studies standards to help explore the NGSS for weather and climate.
After completion of this unit it was given to two reviewers in the field of teaching. They read the unit and provided feedback for improvement. After review of the feedback it was noted that adaptations for students need to be more specific and included in each lesson, not just larger lessons. The feedback was then used to generate specific inclusion ideas for each lesson and improve the availability for overall inclusion in the unit.
