This collection uses primary sources to explore AIDS activism during the 1980s. Digital Public Library of America Primary Source Sets are designed to help students develop their critical thinking skills and draw diverse material from libraries, archives, and museums across the United States. Each set includes an overview, ten to fifteen primary sources, links to related resources, and a teaching guide. These sets were created and reviewed by the teachers on the DPLA's Education Advisory Committee.
Students are introduced to the concept and steps of the engineering design process and taught how to apply it. Students first receive some background information about biomedical engineering (aka bioengineering). Then they learn about material selection and material properties by using a provided guide. In small groups, students learn of their design challenge (improve a cast for a broken arm), brainstorm solutions, are given materials and create prototypes. To finish, teams communicate their design solutions through class poster presentations.
Students groups create scientific research posters to professionally present the results of their AQ-IQ research projects, which serves as a conclusion to the unit. (This activity is also suitable to be conducted independently from its unit—for students to make posters for any type of project they have completed.) First, students critically examine example posters to gain an understanding of what they contain and how they can be made most effective for viewers. Then they are prompted to analyze and interpret their data, including what statistics and plots to use in their posters. Finally, groups are given a guide that aids them in making their posters by suggesting all the key components one would find in any research paper or presentation. This activity is suitable for presenting final project posters to classmates or to a wider audience in a symposium or expo environment. In addition to the poster-making guide, three worksheets, six example posters, a rubric and a post-unit survey are provided.

This lesson will help adult learners to identify honey bees, identify different types of honey bees in a hive, describe pollination process, interpret the importance of pollination and honey bees for pollination and gain knowledge about beekeeping. This will provide a business idea for them to pursue at the same type help conserve honey bee populations. In the long run this will help make food production sustainable. Several online and paper resources are available in this lesson. The mobile-based activities will enhance the learning experience. It will enable learners to access materials and recall and also perform an interesting assignment by taking photos. Only free mobile tools like Wix.com and Whatsapp are used.

Our Inquiry project was made to raise awareness for bee extinction in Hawaii. It teaches the children the importance of bees, and it also teaches them why they should want to raise awareness to preserve bees. It covers the standard KLS 1.
This workbook provides an overview to creating effective academic posters.it offers a series of guidelines for inclusive design, planning and production; dealing with copyright issues, creating the 'message' and graphics and image creation.
This is a lesson plan for introductory science in the preschool classroom. Its an activity about the sun and the sun's effects on the earth. It includes a song, lecture, story time, poster creation, and student presentation.
This collection uses primary sources to explore Japanese American internment during World War II. Digital Public Library of America Primary Source Sets are designed to help students develop their critical thinking skills and draw diverse material from libraries, archives, and museums across the United States.

Lane Community College has released an Open Education Manifesto poster designed by Graphic Design student Char Houweling. The poster has a CC BY-NC license so feel free to reuse and adapt with your own school’s logo.
This is a lesson plan that will be utilized in the classroom in order for the students to learn about the sun. The lesson plan includes a song and dance, a book, lecture, and even a poster project presented by the students. The children will be graded based off of the children's understanding of the relationship between them and the Sun.
This PBL is designed for second grade students. To help understand our school and how to keep the students and staff healthy, the students will investigate different ways to prevent influenza germs from spreading. After considering each germ, they will have the opportunity to create evidence by researching and talking to different resources to come up with the best prevention method for our school.
Students practice human-centered design by imagining, designing and prototyping a product to improve classroom accessibility for the visually impaired. To begin, they wear low-vision simulation goggles (or blindfolds) and walk with canes to navigate through a classroom in order to experience what it feels like to be visually impaired. Student teams follow the steps of the engineering design process to formulate their ideas, draw them by hand and using free, online Tinkercad software, and then 3D-print (or construct with foam core board and hot glue) a 1:20-scale model of the classroom that includes the product idea and selected furniture items. Teams use a morphological chart and an evaluation matrix to quantitatively compare and evaluate possible design solutions, narrowing their ideas into one final solution to pursue. To conclude, teams make posters that summarize their projects.
This poster size image developed by Delphi shows several technologies implemented in automated driving systems that help avoid collisions. These technologies include radar and vision systems, RACam, 360 degree sensing, electronically scanning radar (ESR), Ethernet connectivity, and driver state sensing.
Students apply everything they have learned over the course of the associated lessons about waves, light properties, the electromagnetic spectrum, and the structure of the eye, by designing devices that can aid color blind people in distinguishing colors. Students learn about the engineering design process and develop three possible solutions to the engineering design challenge outlined in lesson 1 of this unit. They create posters to display their three design ideas and the comparisons used to select the best design. Then, students create brochures for their final design ideas, and "sell" the ideas to their "client." Through this activity, students complete the legacy cycle by "going public" with the creation of their informative posters and brochures that explain their designs, as well as color blindness and how people see color, in "client" presentations.
Student teams learn about and devise technical presentations on four reproductive technology topics pregnancy ultrasound, amniocentesis, in-vitro fertilization or labor anesthetics. Each team acts as a panel of engineers asked to make a presentation to a group of students unfamiliar with the reproductive technology. Each group incorporates non-lecture elements into its presentation for greater effectiveness. As students learn about the technologies, by creating a presentation and listening to other groups' presentations, they also learn more about the valuable skill of technical communications.
