Earth Party! An Early Introduction to Carolus Linnaeus and the System of Classification of Living Things Unit Study (Grades 1-4)
Why have we written this curriculum?
Sometimes during childhood we are introduced to new concepts at surprising times. One such memory in my childhood was going on a ride, “Adventure Thru Inner Space” at Disneyland in Tomorrowland. After boarding an “Atomobile” omnimover, I entered a snowflake, then a molecule, and finally an atom. I am sure I had no idea what an atom was—what was that strange circular shape? Yet, in a multi-sensory way, now I had some knowledge of something incredibly small, that was all around me; I did not have the words for it at the time.

It is our hope this curriculum – Earth Party! An Early Introduction to Carolus Linnaeus and the System of Classification of Living Things Unit Study – will be that introduction — that going inside the atom — a bit strange, a bit foreign — but a horizon broadening experience for both you and your students.
Watch for it — Fall 2019
