In this unit of study students learn about adaptations and how they help animals survive. They will apply this knowledge to design new technologies. This unit integrates nine STEM attributes and was developed as part of the South Metro-Salem STEM Partnership's Teacher Leadership Team. Any instructional materials are included within this unit of study.
In this unit, students will become familiar with fables and trickster tales from different cultural traditions and will see how stories change when transferred orally between generations and cultures. They will learn how both types of folktales employ various animals in different ways to portray human strengths and weaknesses and to pass down wisdom from one generation to the next. Use the following lessons to introduce students to world folklore and to explore how folktales convey the perspectives of different world cultures.
This unit was created as an introductory/review unit for Algebra II to allow for a review of main concepts needed to progress in Algebra II. However, it could also be used in Algebra I to introduce for the first time real numbers; number operations; and equations, expressions, and inequalities.
This is an optional program for use by Utah LEAs, schools, and teachers to observe Founders Month and Consitution Day. It aligns with and supports mastery of many Utah Core Social Studies Standards in grade K-5. Standards alignment is provided, along with resources for possible use.

Augmented reality (AR) allows students to learn about the world by enhancing how they can relate to, contextualize, and interact with it through movement and active exploration.With iPad, students can use AR to explore outer esace, immerse themselves in the wonders of the world, and examine art and historical artifacts from national museums—in any learning environment. They can visualize experiences that would be impossible to see otherwise.Whether you want to extend an existing lesson or inesire new ones, you can use and apply AR in math and science, language arts, history, and social studies to elevate engagement, deepen understanding, and make learning more personal and meaningful for students of all ages.
5th grade students work together in teams to create an ecosystem to support Pacific Northwest pollinators.
This lesson plan is designed to teach students to throughly think through the skill sets required for basketball. It will test their understanding of the basketball unit and the skills taught. They will do this by creating an Adobe Express Project using multiple different photos. Their final product, which requires presentations to the entire class, will show if they understand the different skills and how to perform them.

This Geometry Concept Collection is a rigorous presentation of high school geometry. It is fully correlated with the Common Core State Standards.
In CK-12 Middle School Math Concepts – Grade 8, the learning content is divided into concepts. Each concept is complete and whole providing focused learning on an indicated objective. Theme-based concepts provide students with experiences that integrate the content of each concept. Students are given opportunities to practice the skills of each concept through real-world situations, examples, guided practice and explore more practice. There are also video links provided to give students an audio/visual way of connecting with the content.
The COVID-19 Pandemic is a clear example of how science and society are connected. This unit explores how different communities are differentially impacted by the virus through the lens of historical inequities in society. In the context of decisions their families make, students explore the basics of how the virus affects people, and design investigations to explore how it spreads from person to person, and what we can do to prevent that spread.
This unit is designed to support students in understanding the COVID-19 pandemic, transmission of the COVID-19 virus, and the impacts of the pandemic on communities, especially communities of color. Specific learning targets are listed at the beginning of each lesson and highlight a core idea for the lesson, the science and engineering practice students will engage in, and the crosscutting concept students will use in the lesson. i
Huckleberry Finn opens with a warning from its author that misinterpreting readers will be shot. Despite the danger, readers have been approaching the novel from such diverse critical perspectives for 120 years that it is both commonly taught and frequently banned, for a variety of reasons. Studying both the novel and its critics with an emphasis on cultural context will help students develop analytical tools essential for navigating this work and other American controversies. This lesson asks students to combine internet historical research with critical reading. Then students will produce several writing assignments exploring what readers see in Huckleberry Finn and why they see it that way.
Students will create a tour of the topic they have been assigned. Topic will center around the rock cycle including formation of rocks, and weathering and erosion of rocks. Students will use a minimum of 6 original photos and 2 CC images to complete the assignment. Students will need to include the important elements they are supposed to convey and will teach the other class members in a jigsaw using Jamboard. The students will have 3 weeks with 10 lessons to complete the assignment. Extra credit for converting one original image into a CC image to share!"Rock City" by snowpeak is licensed under CC BY 2.0
Striking images can leave lasting impressions on viewers. In this lesson, students make text-self-world connections to a nature- or science-related topic as they collaboratively design a multimedia presentation.
