On Monday only, visit each blog or website below and you'll find one featured item that's valued between $3.00 and $10.00 on TpT.  While you're there be sure to look around and check out the great teaching resources you'll find there.  This is our saying of wishing you a great new school year!  We hope it's the best ever!  

National Park Interdisciplinary Study

Last year I was talking to my class about Old Faithful and was shocked to discover that not one of my third graders had ever even heard of Old Faithful.  I started questioning them about popular sites such as The Grand Canyon of the Smokey Mountains.  That really bothered me, and I knew I wanted to expose my students to our National Parks, but they were no where in our standards.  That's when I decided to create this interdisciplinary unit that incorporated reading, writing, and math standards.  I used this with my third graders at the end of the year, and they loved it!  I hope you enjoy it too!

Ashleigh,I was at Third Grade's A Charm and read the comment that you didn't know how to link a picture. All you have to do is click on your pic after you upload it and then click on the chain icon up top. It should ask you to enter the URL for the sight that you want to link the pic to. Be sure that there is only one http// bc sometimes when you copy, it shows up twice. I hope this helps!
