Sample Lesson Plan Outlines

for Students Under 10

These are a small fraction of the basic lesson plans that we have for our students, and that we encourage you to use freely or to base your own lessons on if you homeschool your children! Of course, all lesson plans are customized for the child, because every child is unique. We blend English and STEM concepts, so students learn how to describe the world they are discovering around them.
