This inquiry unit introduces nests and the concept of shelters/homes. Throughout this unit both the teacher and students will; explore, experiment, discuss, theorize, predict, print, draw, construct, brainstorm and in the end create a nest of their own. The teacher will start with students opinions and theories based off of their prior knowledge.

All strands of the curriculum will be embedded throughout the unit but, most importantly the students will make connections between what a home/shelter is in their own environment and outside of it.
