Goodnight Moon Unit Study

In this unit study we learned about things in the children's book Goodnight Moon by Margret Wise Brown. We learned about the phases of the moon, practiced telling time, and rhymed with nursery rhymes. This unit study is geared for early elementary students with 3 days worth of lessons.  I did this unit with my 1st grader and recommend it for Kindergarten to 3rd grade.
