But FIRST. I must tell you about my Derby Unit. You see, I teach 5th grade in Kentucky. So, I hopped on TPT to look for a Kentucky Derby Unit for my big kids. Would you believe there wasn't anything Common Core related to the Derby?! So, I have been working my tail off (get it, horse... HA! Maybe I have been around 11 year olds too long!) But, I have finished up my mini unit and I want you to be the first to grab it! Check out my Day at the Derby Unit here!
How do you and your students prepare for the Derby?
