  • Teacher notes are included on most slides to help guide classroom discussion.
  • Readings associated with each unit are in a separate zipped PDF file. A variety of readings are included so teachers can select those most appropriate for their classrooms.
A standards document is provided with Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core State Standards for Math and ELA, and Agriculture, Food, & Natural Resources Standards. Teachers can decide to what level they want to augment the provided instruction in relation to these standards.
