Operation Outreach-USA is unique in that it provides grade level thematic
lesson plans for each participating classroom teacher. Lessons are conveniently
organized into one manual. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, the OO-USA
lessons allow teachers to blend math, geography, science and social studies
activities with language arts lessons.
Included in the lesson plans are
Guided Reading Lessons (GRLs) for each book in a particular grade level. These
help teachers integrate OO-USA into their curriculum by introducing reading
basics such as vocabulary development, phonics, pronunciation and spelling.
Various activities including creative writing, art, research projects,
discussion and debate allow teachers to check comprehension and focus on
character building concepts in the books.
A bound Lesson Plan is included with each teacher's shipment of books.
Lesson Resource Section - On-line Only
Our Lesson Resource Guides are only available on-line. These guides provide valuable extension activities that allow for expanded studies on geography, science, math, etc. Additional character-building activities may give teachers the tools to focus on developing empathy, respect, responsibility and self-esteem among students. The links are to PDF files.
