Using Our Resources

Standards-Aligned Unit Planning Process-Domain I

1. Unit Overview Content Area: Social Studies

Grade Level: 2

1a. Brief description of the unit of study Using Our Resources will consist of five lessons, taking place during the course of one week.
Students should take away the big idea: ‘people use the land and its resources to help them live.’
Children should learn that people modify their environment as they build different types of
environments. Topics explored will include land and water resources, people settle, changing our
environment, and connecting communities. Students will be assessed informally and will have a
cumulative project due at the end of the week as a summative assessment. The science behind
natural resources will be briefly discussed during the unit, but further developed the following week
during an earth science unit. Students will also have writing incorporated into this social studies
