Who Sank The Boat? Kindergarten Literature Unit Study


Our first Who Sank The Boat?-Kindergarten is ready for the June session!  I have had so much fun creating these printables to line up with our State Kindergarten Curriculum and with our book selection for the study.

Who Sank The Boat is a great literature selection for both Kindergarten reading and science skills.  For our summer session we are going to be exploring the science concept of floating and sinking.  If you would like to try a fun, “wet” unit this summer, these printables may be for you!

For each unit I will be including Kindergarten math standards.   In this unit you will find a number recognition game.  My Pixie is still working on recognizing numbers 11-20.  I have included a “Go Fish” game to practice this concept.

There’s a lot of focus on literacy in this unit.  Story sequencing, story elements, author awareness,  journaling, a page for poetry notebooking and letter formation, and an emergent reader with vocabulary and sight words.

For science we will be conducting a lot of  experiments.  They include making your own deep sea diver and a floating test.

Another book that we will be using for this unit is Little Bear’s Little Boat by Eve Bunting.  This is a great book to include the science skill: Growing and Changing. 

If you want to add a little play to this unit, check here for animals to put into a handmade boat and test it out!  Does it sink, or does it float?
