Grades K-5 | Lesson Plan | Literacy
Strengthen your students reading comprehension skills by teaching them to draw inferences from various types of text. In this lesson elementary students will practice drawing inferences or making predictions before, during and after reading, and then validating them. The lesson is part of the Blue Ribbon Readers collection.
Product Life Cycle
Grades 3-4 | Lesson Plan | Cycles & Processes
In this lesson, students flex their critical thinking skills by piecing together the “life story” of objects pulled from the trash. Featuring LOOP SCOOPS videos, students think about where materials in everyday products come from, and learn that knowing about product life cycles can help us make decisions that reduce waste and pollution.
