Angry Science Birds Thematic Unit

This week our story is "Simple Machines". I was trying to think of a way to teach this in a fun way.

Right now flying birds are all the rage with my kiddos. Next week we are going to have a blast with a new 43 page thematic unit that I just created: Angry Science Birds! Included in the unit are a lot of math, science, writing, technology ideas and center activities. We will even be creating our very own popsicle catapults to launch marshmallow "birds"!

Want to join in on the fun?

Let's do a giveaway while we're at it. I'm giving away 3 of these units- All you have to do to enter is to leave a comment with your email address!

I would really appreciate it if you would check out my stores, write a blog post about this giveaway, or add me to your sidebar- extra entries for each! :)

Giveaway ends on Wednesday at 5:00 Central Time. Good luck!

I just started playing angry birds and know that it is popular with my students so this would definitely be a great science unit for them!


Thanks for the great idea. We don't get to do simple machines until 5th, but I could totally use this with my 4th graders for math. They would love to launch marshmallows and graph it.
