Have your students come explore the Amazon with us while completing lesson plans that meet NGSS standards!
I have been collaborating with K-12 teachers Kerry Kogan (Lawndale School District,CA), and Sarah Pipping (Oakland Unified Schoo District,CA) to develop lesson plans that can be used in class or virtually. The content is mainly geared towards middle school science classes. We have 10 lesson plans that can either be used individually or as a 10 lesson unit sequence.
Each lesson plan outlines how it meets:
Science and Engineering Practices
Common Core Curriculum
Disciplinary Core Ideas
If this may work for you check out the Unit Sequence Tropical Ecology and let us know what you think!
