Lesson Plans

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.
