Some Resources We Love!!
Nourish is a middle school curriculum available free at www.nourishlife.org In addition to the online lessons, activities and resources the curriculum guide can be purchased for ease access. The guide will be available through the Lake Placid Middle High School Library and the Tupper Lake Wild Center. The complete guide includes access to a variety of ready for the classroom activities including: DVDs and video guides, short films, and an 84 page standards aligned classroom activities for grades 6-8. (Spanish-language handouts are also available free through the website).
We recommend that all students in 6th grade view the 26 minute PBS special “Nourish” included in the Nourish curriculum guide. Included is a video guide with discussion questions for the video. Note: Common core standards for English language arts for each of the activities can be found on page 80 of the Nourish curriculum guide.
