Resource Overview

This is a Spanish/English lesson packet for K – 5th grade teachers. It is designed to cover themes of sustainability and global citizenship through hands-on, memorable classroom activities. The interdisciplinary nature of these topics makes the lessons appropriate for use in any of the core subject areas (science, social studies, math, and language arts).

The six lessons are divided among two units that when completed together, will give students a thorough understanding of how population growth and individual actions impact both people’s lives and the natural world. Each unit or individual lesson plan can also be used separately to complement classroom instruction throughout the school year.
