Creating appropriate instructional content around Common Core and/or state standards, particularly involving STEM, presents challenges, but it also imposes a certain amount of structure, which helps make curriculum development a little more manageable. What’s great is how constructive these resources are in helping educators focus their instruction with specific learning goals in mind for their students.
We have a couple of resources to support your teaching (and we’re looking forward to your feedback to help us grow and improve our collection of resources):
- Self-Watering Container PBL Activities & Lesson Plans – This is our repository of project-based learning (PBL) activities and lesson plans that you can use to instruct your students towards the Common Core and, in many cases, STEM, using self-watering gardening containers
- Laying Hen Care Activities & Lesson Plans – This is our repository of various types of activities and lesson plans that you can use to instruct your students towards the Common Core and, in many cases, STEM, about properly raising laying hens for their eggs
- Guest Submissions – Create your own PBL lesson plans based on our self-watering bucket container gardening concept and peer-reviewed literature as well as tied to your state’s standards (Common Core or otherwise) for use by other teachers and submit it to us for consideration; chosen works will be published on this site at the editorial discretion of KPS4Parents’ child development and learning specialists
