STEM Lesson Plans

Teachers: Are you looking for hands-on activities to do with your class that have positive environmental messages, but still help you meet your science curriculum requirements?

The lesson plans below, created specifically for Clear into the Classroom and this year’s theme of water and waterways, have a strong focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and address key topics from the Next Generation Science Standards.

As a bonus, classrooms who join the Eco Ranger Club and complete one of these lesson plans will be featured on the Eco Ranger Club Honor Roll!
