Featured Curricula

Stone Lab Virtual Field Trips (2021)

Stone Lab Virtual Field Trips were designed for a few different situations: to generate excitement and prepare students for a Stone Lab field trip experience, as supplemental experiences or assessments after an in-person field trip, or on their own to give students a digital field trip experience.

Solar Technology Curriculum (2017)

The Solar Technology Curriculum offers teachers a blended approach to instruction; Nearpod presentions utilize a highly engaging content delivery application, allowing students to interact directly with background knowledge and lessons while providing real-time formative assessment. The lessons are written using a structured or guided inquiry approach which can easily be adapted to meet the needs of higher- or lower-level learners. Students have the opportunity to design investigations, analyze and interpret data, and communicate understanding through the use of models.

Great Lakes Climate Change Curriculum (2013)

Lessons and activities introduce students to the effects of climate change on the Great Lakes region through classroom activities and outdoor labs. The lessons are developed for classroom teachers, but most can be adapted for informal education settings.

What is the impact of beach litter? (2014)
