Lesson Plans from the Utah Education Network

For free lesson plans in a variety of subjects, check out the Utah Education Network. The lesson plans offered here can be categorized by grade level, so you can easily find what you're looking for. The fourth grade lesson plans are organized into a number of categories, including math, health education, language arts, library media, physical education and science.

The science category includes about 100 lesson plans. Other categories may have a few more and some have a few less, but you certainly have a variety of plans to choose from. The science lessons cover a wide range of topics, like dinosaurs, fossils, water cycles, erosion, endangered species and wetlands.

A typical lesson plan here, such as the one about wetlands, begins with a brief summary you can read over to see if it contains what you're looking for. Then, it identifies which state standard this lesson relates to. You'll also find a list of materials that you'll need to provide your fourth graders with for the lesson. You can read about the background knowledge you and your students will need, the learning objectives and the lesson itself. Finally, the Utah Education Network provides information on how to assess your class when the lesson is over and ways in which you might extend the lesson.
