Elementary School Lesson Plans

Problem-based learning is a viable instructional strategy for the elementary grades.  Here, students have not yet developed the "discipline-area" mind set, unlike those students in middle or high schools. These older students view each subject area as discrete--they don't expect to use English skills in math class, for example. Elementary students, though, are more attuned to interdisciplinary teaching, so problem-based learning will feel more natural to them.

Lesson plans in elementary school are geared towards particular grade levels, first through fifth.
