Lesson Plans: Elementary
Welcome to the Technology & Engineering Education Association of Pennsylvania's Elementary Lesson Plan page! These lesson plans were developed by educators from right here in the Keystone State of Pennsylvania! If you are would like to offer us one of your lessons, please forward them to the TEEAP Webmaster.
The format of the lesson plan is not important, but you may download a copy of the template provided at the 2005 Governor's Institute for Technology Education by clicking here. Unlike the Template found on the K-12 Guide Page, this one includes some optional worksheets, design brief layout, and rubric template.
You can also use the Pennsylvania Department of Education's Standards Aligned System (SAS) website to create Lesson Plans using the materials found in on their Publsh Your Best page. These can then be submitted for inclusion on SAS for all teachers across the state.
Files below are in various formats including Microsoft PowerPoint and Word as well as Adobe Acrobat. These plans are available for you to download and use. Feel free to adapt them to suit your needs!

The theme ITEEA's 78th Annual Conference will be held right in our nation's capital! Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (sTEm) is very much a “buzzword” on today’s educational landscape. Every teacher, school, district, and state has its own version of what sTEm means as well as how to help students engage in experiences that will prepare them for the 21st Century. Technology and Engineering is the foundation for making these experiences meaningful through integrative sTEm education. sTEm implementation embodies the spirit of partnerships—working collaboratively to reach common goals.
This conference is an opportunity to recognize and honor the accomplishments of our colleagues and best-practice programs. Additionally, it provides professional development and networking opportunities, as well as opportunity to renew old friendships and create new friendships. For more information, click here.
