Sample die-cut lesson plans from Ellison Education:
Plains Habitat Diorama - Create fun habitat displays. "As students discuss energy needs of living things, they realize that all organisms in an environment interact with each other either directly or indirectly through a network of food chains known as a food web. Students review the roles of producers, consumers and decomposers and the order of energy flow within an ecosystem..."
I Have A Dream Poster - Create an "I Have a Dream" bulletin board to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
