3rd-5th Grade

We planned to tie Clean and Green to the Iowa Core from the beginning. Being able to teach Core concepts and skills through engaging experiential lessons is without a doubt the best way to convince teachers the program is valuable for their classrooms. As we began developing the 60 lessons for Third through Fifth Grades, we found that the concepts and skills in the Common Core Standards had changed. They were more complicated and difficult. 

But we soldiered on and had fun meeting the challenge of planning lessons around things like fractals. You'll find those lessons here. Meanwhile, we are working harder than ever to get the word out about this amazing FREE resource. Please give some of these lessons a try and pass them on if you like them. If you don't, or even if you do, let us know by completing the Clean and Green Survey.
