    Identity, Diversity and Community: Fifth Grade


    10-lesson fifth grade unit to build classroom culture focused on identity, diversity and community.

    This 10-lesson unit aligned to fifth grade ELA and Social Studies Standards is intended to be taught during the month of September.  The purpose is to build scholar understanding of identity and to learn about their classmates to establish the foundation for your classroom community while simultaneously learning talk structures and text protocols that you will repeat throughout the year.  

    The entire 10-lesson document is included here as a downloadable resource.
