New tpt product!

This is my brand new tpt product! I'm so happy and proud of this product. It's a grade 4 inquiry based unit, incorporating political and physical regions of canada, habitats and rocks and minerals, so it is based on science and the new social studies curriculum. It runs for an entire term, 20 weeks of inquiry questions and supplementary lessons.

Each week starts off with a new inquiry question. From there, supplementary lessons, worksheets and shared reading tasks are outlined.  At the end of the unit there are checkbrics, one for each strand. The checkbrics can be used to assess the inquiry question. Each question in the checkbrics outlines which section of the achievement chart it lies in.

There are a total of 18 inquiry questions, 19 supplementary lessons, worksheets, shared readings. 3 diagnostic assessments, and 4 culminating tasks with rubrics for each.  You also get report card comments, learning goals for each lesson and an overall big idea.  The beginning of the unit also describes how to create an inquiry based environment and how to keep track of student work.

Please check it out.  A preview is included! Enjoy, and don't forget to leave feedback for tpt credits!
