Colorado Lesson Plans and Units

This collection of units was created by Colorado teachers participating in the 1999-2004 Colorado Unit Writing Project.  Units were produced for prekindergarten through grade eight as well as Physical Education, Library, Art, Music, and Spanish.

NOTE: Please be advised that the Core Knowledge Foundation has not reviewed these units. The ideas and strategies presented reflect the thoughts and philosophy of the authors. These units do not adhere to the domain-based unit format, but may be a helpful starting point for the creation of domain-based units.
