Middle School Educator Guide

At a Glance

The Middle School Educator Guide is the result of the collaborative efforts of Daina Lujan, former Safe Routes to School Coordinator, Lily Jones, a curriculum writer, and Rob Boldt, a graphic designer. Each activity is aligned to the Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. Activities are divided by content areas. Activities are written to be implemented in any of the 6-8 grade levels, but include “ramp ups” for advanced learners. The activities in this guide lend themselves to flexible implementation. They may stand alone, be part of a unit or provide a starting ground to build common knowledge for a student led campaign.
