Just before spring break I finished up our habitat unit. Since we live in the Midwest and many of my students are not familiar with the desert so I created the My Desert Learning Packet for students to track their learning. (Which is free to download on TPT and TN just click on the links down below to find my shops.)
To have my students better understand why animals burrow in the sand during the day we did this simple experiment. Just add some sand to a flower container and put it under a desk lamp. Turn it on first thing in the morning. By the end of the day have students feel the warm sand. Also have some sand that you do not put under the light and have students feel the difference.
My students also had the opportunity to answer this question: How do desert plants live on very little water? This is a great activity for students. You can purchase this experiment at TPT and TN for just $1.

I have my End of Year Memory Books uploaded to Teachers Notebook. Click on the picture below to check it out.
If you don't see your theme just leave a comment below and I will do my best to create one. I would rather fill requests first then to create a theme that no one wants.
This week I will be off on spring break so I will be spending some time uploading more of my documents to Teachers Notebook. I know I have had requests to add more themed clip charts. So more will be coming soon.
Also, I'm thinking of adding of a TPT shop. So stayed tune for more information on that.
