High School Lesson Plans
The lessons listed below are IPM lesson plans developed by participants of the summer "IPM for Teachers" course taught at Penn State. The lesson plans were created by educators to fulfill the summer course requirements. These lessons can be great starting blocks to adapt for your own classroom. The grade level that the lessons were designed for is listed in parenthesis after the title. However, most lessons can be adapted up or down a level. All lessons are PDF files and can be viewed with Adobe's free Acrobat Reader software.
