Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards Lesson Plans for Amy Stewart's Books

Amy has partnered with award-winning educator Jill Christensen to create Common Core and/or Next Generation Science Standards-aligned lesson plans for several of her non-fiction books. Although these books were written for an adult audience, teachers have been using them in the classroom and requesting lesson plans. Amy and Jill are happy to oblige! Free downloads are available here, and more lesson plans will be available on an ongoing basis through Jill's Teachers Pay Teachers store, Utah Roots.
