As you may know, Educational Innovations offers lesson plans and activities for many of our Super! Wow! Neat! products. Designed with practical classroom application in mind, these lesson plans and activities require minimal effort or outside materials. They are suitable for in-home use, as well, though some supervision may be required. Some of our products feature lesson plan ideas for different grade levels, and we are currently working to align lessons with the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).
In the past, we’ve included print-outs in the box with your shipment. To facilitate the continual updating of our lesson plans and to “lesson” our impact on the environment, however, we are discontinuing this practice.
Now, our lesson plans and activities associated with many products will be available only by 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 titled, “Lesson Ideas”.
You can determine which products have lesson plan ideas in two other ways: (1) look in our catalog for items with a red apple icon, or (2) when you receive your order, look for “+” signs in front of the descriptions for all your awesome new science goodies.
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 do print.
