June Lesson spotlight

This month we can’t wait to celebrate the first day of summer! Here are some lesson ideas to help you celebrate.

Early Elementary (K-2)

For Great Outdoors Month, use idea #12 in this book for inspiration for an art project. Students can make a collage with pictures they’ve snapped during a walk outside their school.

Upper Elementary (3-5)

World Oceans Day is June 8th, so try out activity #15 in this book to have students profile a marine biome. They can describe underwater creatures and plant life through audio and visual responses.

Middle School (6-8)

June is National Safety Month and you and your students can make a vocabulary reference book using strategy #11 in this book. Each student can collect words about being safe online for an independent or collaborative reference guide.

High School (9-12)

Try out activity #10 to have students collect questions after reading about the history of Flag Day (14 June). You can have students use the questions they collect to spark future research projects.

Book Creator Ambassador spotlight

This month’s spotlight features Book Creator Ambassador Monica Burns. Monica is a former classroom teacher and runs the edtech blog ClassTechTips.com.

Monica also runs professional development workshops for teachers and has created several of our free ebooks for teachers including 15 Science Projects for Book Creator Classrooms.
