Classroom Materials

Many of our curriculum modules contain downloadable lesson plans for classroom use. Since our curriculum modules are undergoing renovation, we have posted a few of our most popular lesson plans in .pdf format here. Check back in a few weeks or email school programs if there is a specific lesson you are looking for.
