Connecting past to present and future
Guampedia, Guam’s Online Encyclopedia, is proud to unveil its latest initiative – the Guampedia Lesson Plan Project – a new online resource helping teachers bring our island’s history and culture alive in the classroom.
This new extension of Guampedia provides local educators with free lesson plans, classroom materials, and links to additional online resources.
The plans utilize the extensive, in-depth information available on Guampedia to incorporate Guam history and culture into numerous different subjects. Lesson plans are available for all age levels – from elementary school through high school – and include additional activities to accommodate diverse settings and skill-levels.
New lesson plans continue to be added to the collection; a series of Earth Science lesson plans on the effects of bio-degradable and non-biodegradable waste on our island’s environment are under development now, with the first few included here. Local educators are also encouraged to submit their own lesson plans for inclusion in the database, and to provide feedback on the current collection of lesson plans.
The Guampedia Lesson Plan Project, in partnership with local educators, aims to incorporate Guam’s rich history and culture into our island’s many, diverse classroom settings. By working together, we can help students connect Guam’s past to its future.
The Guampedia Lesson Plan Project was funded by a grant from the Guam Preservation Trust. The Earth Science lesson plans are funded by a Sea Grant at the University of Guam.
