Lesson plans are paired with content from Warner Bros. Discovery partners and designed to be used with a learning facilitator. More information and instructions for each lesson are included within each lesson plan, so be sure to download those first.

These activities are paired with short videos and also include instructions for use on each learning unit page.
For the instructor guided lesson, each learning unit consists of up to three separate, but stackable lessons and corresponding exercises aligned to academic standards and grade levels.

Lessons are designed to be supplementary resources for educators as modular or whole learning experience to be completed between 10 minutes up to entire classroom period depending on the depth of lesson delivery.

For the student self-led lesson, these are structured following the similar style of the instructor guided lessons, however they do vary between an instructional video (up to 5 minutes) where students engage directly with activities or video accompanied with student activity worksheet. Allocated time is based on individual student learning needs.

Recognizing that there are variations of standards based on location, we recommend cross referencing the standard codes and descriptors that can be found here to align with your lesson goals.
