What is a thematic unit? A thematic unit is a series of lesson plans (activities) that integrate all subjects around one main, central theme. Teachers use thematic units to compact the curriculum, and help students make connections. I find that unit plans save me a lot time because they incorporate all subjects. I also love to create cooperative learning activities and incorporate learning centers into the unit.
