Science of the Comstock - Lesson Plans
We have written here a series of lesson plans that apply the material presented in the rest of the Science of the Comstock. The lesson plans are divided into the same categories as the main site. Generally, the lessons link back only to the material presented in that specific area. This gives the teacher the opportunity to develop the connections between subject areas, but the framework is available within the material.
For our activities, we tried to use materials generally available in grocery or hardware stores if not in the teacher work room.
To make the lessons tie into the curriculum, we reference the National Science Education Standards, and some lessons also reference the Nevada State Science Standards. Because the National Science Education Standards have been used by many states in the development of the state standards and curricula, these references should lead readily into classroom use.
