'Hands-On, Project-Based Learning Science Lessons where Students Explore and Create'

Come learn about FREE science-based lesson plans and resources available on a range of subjects for a range of ages. We’ll walk through where to find them and discuss fun ways to expand beyond the curriculum. From designing healthy ice pops to learning about plants’ growth needs, each lesson plan is primed to inspire and excite students in the classroom. Each lesson plan uses relatable scenarios and fun, hands-on activities to fuel deeper student engagement in STEM, while connecting students to the exciting world of food and agriculture. Students will learn the processes of research, design, evaluation, modification, and presentation through the creation of a healthy ice pop. Students will observe seeds, match them to the fruits from which they came, and design investigations to answer questions that they generate about seeds.
