Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

3rd grade Fossils: Blended Unit Plan


Hi fellow teachers! I decided to create a blended unit plan for 3rd grade Science: Fossils. We rarely have enough time to truly devote instruction on Science topics and I really feel it's vital and shouldn't be skipped. Therefore, I am looking for more ways to integrate science instruction into ELA and Math time periods. I plan to have students work online during their independent practice rotation times for ELA during this Science Unit. I have combined the district's in-class activities with activities I have created online for students to complete during ELA independent practice rotation time.

Learning Targets: 
Analyze and interpret data from fossils to provide evidence of the organisms and the environments in which they lived long ago.
Recognize and explain that fossils provide evidence about the plants and animals that lived long ago and about the nature of the environment at that time.
