The Digger Unit Study

diy printables lesson planner templates

Do you a child who loves diggers? My boys were all into construction toys when they were younger so this Digger Unit study was a huge hit with my son.

My daughter? She doesn’t get as excited about them but she will play with her brothers cars when they’re playing together but she doesn’t love them like her brothers did at that age.

If you have a little one that loves watching those big wheels, scooping and carrying large debris, I’ve put together some digger resources that may be helpful if you’d like to put together resources and create your own unit study.
