Free Lesson Plans
All of the lesson plan resources found on the TOPS site have been compiled by TOPS staff. We work hard to make our lessons engaging and targeted to student needs.
These can easily be aligned to common core standards. Most contain cross curricular activities in math, science, reading language arts, and visual arts for students in grades K-12. Many also have engineering and history added in. We believe in the concepts of using effective STEM instruction and these are weaved in throughout our lessons. We also think kids need a strong foundation in reading and writing. Instruction in all of these areas are important and you will find our materials include a bit everything. The key is modifying the instruction to the needs of the student that you work with. We promise all of these are fun for kids (and for their instructors). Just as a warning though, these are also intensive, very in-depth, and require all instructors to be very prepared!
We have two different resources to help you learn Spanish.
The Spanish Survival Guide was created for English speakers interested in learning Spanish. This is a great resource at an inexpensive price. The Guide costs $6.50 for the book and $6.50 for the CD. If bought as a complete set it costs $12. This is a great resource for staff that need to learn some survival phrases in Spanish.
