Describe the development of the unit by answering the following:

How is the content of the unit appropriate for the age/grade level chosen?
How will specific learning needs be addressed throughout the unit?
Which current learning theories influenced instructional decisions in the unit?
Which strategies for children’s motivation and engagement will be utilized in the unit?
How will formative and summative assessment be used in the unit to plan, evaluate, and strengthen instruction and to promote continuous learning?
How could children’s families be involved in the unit?

Be sure to reflect families’ language differences and cultural and/or ethnic diversity. 
Part 2: Resources Toolkit  
Create an annotated bibliography of 5 books and resources that support your unit.

Books and resources should: 
Include 2 targeted for teacher use and 3 targeted for student and family use 
Comprise of at least 3 multimedia materials, including web-based resources 
Be aligned with and support unit objectives 
Account for the diversity of your learners, including English learners, varying math proficiency levels, and students with exceptional needs 
Each annotation should be block indented and begin with the reference. All annotations should be in alphabetical order. 
Explicitly connect the selected book or resource to the unit in 3 to 4 sentences.
Part 3:  Lesson Plans

Activities are appropriate for the needs of young children who are culturally diverse and differentiated for those with exceptional learning needs (e.g., English learners, learning disabilities, gifted/talented). 
Activities are meaningful for young children by connecting learning to prior knowledge, to the community, and to real-world experiences. 
Activities foster young children’s appreciation and engagement in subject matter content and align to objectives and core concepts.
Activities incorporate both children’s and teacher’s use of technology.
