Lesson Plans

Other lessons have been written and developed to help teach a variety of North Dakota studies topics.  For example, The Road to Little Rock project has grown into a social justice curriculum and a video presentation that can be utilized by teachers, students, and a wide group of community stakeholders.


A wind energy and energy generation activity kit is available for checkout at the Teacher Resource Networks around North Dakota. The lesson plans and instructions are also available online by clicking the link below. The kits complement the content of ENERGY: Powered by North Dakota – a fourth and eighth grade energy curriculum for North Dakota Studies.
