Lesson Ideas

Educational Innovations is proud to offer a wide array of lesson plans and activities for many of our Super! Wow! Neat!® products. These lessons and activities require minimal advance effort or outside materials. They’re designed for practical classroom application but are also suitable for in-home use, though some supervision may be required. Some of our products feature different lesson ideas for different grade levels, and we are currently working to align our lessons with the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).

The fastest way to review our free lesson ideas is to check out our new LESSON IDEAS link.  We’re constantly updating this page as we add new lessons.

In the past, we’ve always included printed lesson sheets in the box with your shipment.  However, in an effort to “lesson” our impact on the environment, we are phasing out paper copies of our lesson plans and activities.  (Note: some of our materials still do contain paper inserts.)

You will still have everything you need to conduct your experiments and lessons—in digital format.  All the lesson plans and activities associated with our products are now available for free download from their individual product page on our website.  It’s the same information, of course, but available to you in a more ‘eco-friendly’ format.  Just click on the file folder tab called “Lesson Ideas.”

lesson ideas onlineYou can determine which products have lesson plan ideas in two other ways:

(1) Look in our catalog for items with a red apple icon.  A red apple inside a monitor screen means that an online lesson plan exists for this product.

(2)  When you receive your order, look closely at your shipping invoice.  A “+” sign in front of the product description means that a lesson plan exists online for your awesome new science material.

Please consider the environment before printing out multiple copies! This is a great opportunity to foster teamwork and cooperation by asking students to share any plans that you have already printed.

    Of this post that was posted earlier…

    “Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment.

    We use these containers as “geocaches” for this game and they are fantastic! You can create your own educational game by choosing your own locations and creating your own treasure hunt for your students (by not publishing on geocaching.com the coordinates to be used only by you and your students.)”

    I failed to mention that we use film canisters AND soda bottle preforms! They are perfect!!
