The teacher plans instruction that supports every student in meeting rigorous learning goals by
drawing upon knowledge of content areas, curriculum, cross-disciplinary skills, and pedagogy, as
well as knowledge of learners and the community context.
Name of Artifact: Thematic Unit

Brief Description:
In this assignment, I created a thematic unit for first grade children; based on the childrens book
The Very Hungry Caterpillar. The theme is caterpillars. I created activities in each subject area to
help them understand the topic. I include the objectives for each subject area and the Indiana
Academic Standards that each activity will meet.
Rationale:
To document my understanding of standard #7, Planning for Instruction; I included my thematic
unit plan. This thematic unit plan shows my understanding and ability to plan instruction that
supports my topic and educates my students. It touches on all subject areas and has an activity
for each one.
