SBL’s Units of Work are comprehensive thematic units of work linked to Australian curriculum learning outcomes, encouraging hands-on learning opportunities and collaboration between students.
The Units of Work include printable resources and SBL story suggestions, ready for the classroom, to be used as a sequence or individually. Units of Work are the perfect end of year activity inspiring learning and encouraging students to work together. The first series is available for anyone to access and download; however, Units of Work will only be available to SBL subscribers from 2022.
“Teachers are busy especially at the end of the year - these units allow teachers to pick up and deliver a unit that has been planned to be engaging, activate creative thinking and collaboration. They don’t need to create worksheets, look for curriculum links, think about success criteria - It’s all been done for them. As a teacher librarian I loved being able to help teachers connect wonderful picture books to classroom learning.”
