21st Century Learners- Kindergarten

This is a list that provides lesson plans that teach kindergarten students about the 8 skills we need to be successful in life.

Leadership

This lesson plan is from Canada. It teaches students about what leadership means. It invites various leaders in the community to come and speak about their role and how they are a leader. There are various activities for students to complete. In America, we can skip over the prime ministers role since we do not have one.

6

Entrepreneurship

This site gives a lesson plan for grades 3-7 on building a lemonade stand and making a business. There is not a lot out there for kindergarten students but I believe that a teacher could take these ideas and modify them for kindergarten age students. This lesson plan could be completed whole group within the classroom. (http://creativecleverandclassy.com/lemonade-entrepreneurship-for-kids.html)
