A NOTE ABOUT ALL ONE COMMUNITY LESSON PLANS

The One Community lesson plans are intentionally designed for use in ANY educational environment and with ALL educational, cultural, religious/spiritual, and philosophical approaches to teaching and learning. They are designed without an ideological approach and specifically so they can be adapted to include the views, preferences, methodologies, and/or ideologies preferred by different parents and teachers.

For maximum flexibility and adaptation, they are also designed to be combined to teach multiple subjects at the same time. Doing this increases the creativity, effectiveness, and fun of your learning environment. Once we are on the property and operating our version of the complete school and Education for Life program, we will be adding video examples of how to combine the lessons. In the meantime, visit the Teaching Strategies page for a list of suggestions.

TEACHING ARTS AND TRADES WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF NATURE

 Teaching art in the context of nature, Art Classes, One Community The Arts

  • Go outside (to a forest or a field, for example) and collect some items in nature. Create an art piece* with the items you have collected.
  • Go on a mini-excursion in nature and take photographs* of things you find beautiful (for example: animals, plants, scenery, rocks). Choose five of your favorite photos and show them to others.
  • Go into a natural setting you find inspiring and paint a picture* of it.
  • Go on an excursion in nature and collect some items in nature.* Make detailed sketches of five items and then do some research on these items to create descriptions to go with your sketches, with the aim of celebrating nature and/or raising awareness about environmental issues.
  • Go on an excursion in nature, pay attention to all the sounds you hear and make note of them. Based on the sounds you note, create a song* (with or without lyrics) using your instrument(s) of choice. Share this song with others, either in person or electronically.
  • Go into nature and find some inspiration for making a quilt* or piece of embroidery*. Also look online for ideas. Plan your design and then make the piece.
  • After doing some brainstorming in a natural setting, create an interactive street theatre piece* celebrating nature and helping to raise awareness about what we can do about environmental problems. Also create a flyer with more information, which can be collected by those interested during or after your performance. Perform this piece in at least one public setting.
 Teaching trades in the context of nature, Trade Classes, One Community Trades

  • Make a bird feeder* or butterfly feeder* using sticks and other items lying around outside or in your home (look online for ideas and request the assistance of an adult). Place it outside of your place (or, with the permission of a friend or relative, their place). Watch to see the variety of creatures that come to eat there.
  • Do some research online about how to make your own planter pots using items you find around the house (e.g. with old bottles or plastic containers). Bring nature into your home by growing a plant in your pot (from seed or seedlings). Take digital photos to document the plant’s growth.*
  • With the supervision of an adult, create a birdhouse or nest box out of wood. Place it outside of your place (or, with the permission of a friend or relative, their place). Periodically check to see if the birdhouse is inhabited, and if so, by whom.*
  • Make note of some of the items you can find in nature in your area and then do some research about what natural products can be made using those items (e.g. air fresheners, decorations). You may need extra items from the supermarket. Create these products and share them with others as gifts.*
  • Create a large structure in which multiple types of insects can live and/or overwinter, also known as a bug hotel, using wood and other materials (e.g.https://tcpermaculture.blogspot.ch/2011/11/permaculture-projects-structures-for.html). Place it outside of your place (or, with the permission of a friend or relative, their place). Check at least once a month to see if any insects are inhabiting your structure, and take photos to document these inhabitants. When there are enough inhabitants, invite groups of local children to come visit the bug home and explain how it works and who is living there.*
  • Research the link between Feng Shui design concepts and nature. Then create a blog or presentation* about what you have found, including photos of buildings (from the Internet or which you have taken yourself) as examples.
  • Research tiny homes, tree houses, and other modes of living that bring one closer to nature and are more eco-friendly. Choose the type that you find most appealing and create basic architectural renderings* (with or without use of software). If possible, build your piece and invite others to visit.

  • Choose one endangered animal and create a poster project* introducing both the animal and its situation, and the human activity which has resulted in its being endangered. Share this with others.
  • Carry out some research on the industrial revolution and your choice of water pollution, air pollution, or both. Create a computer slideshow* with photos and explanations.
  • Carry out research on desertification and human activity, and how some deserts we know were previously farmland, for example, and what human activity caused them to become deserts. Create a computer slideshow* about this topic.
  • How has the culture(s) with which you identify with changed its attitudes towards nature and the environment over time (e.g. is an individual part of nature or separate from it?). Create a presentation* depicting and explaining the timeline.
  • Compare and contrast how the society you identify with most views nature with at least one society on another continent (e.g. is an individual part of nature or separate from it?). What are the factors that play a part in any differences, both historical and present? What have been the consequences? In light of the information you gather, what is your view? Write a well researched essay*.
  • Compare and contrast the environmental effects of the industrial revolution and those of the industrialization of currently developing or emerging economies. Include debates, such as whether or not it is fair for post-industrial societies to criticize industrializing countries about pollution. Write a well-researched essay* explaining what you have found, and your opinions.
  • Research various connections between human activity throughout history and the natural environment. Create a community visual display* showing this history, which should be put in a public space for others to view for at least one week. (option: can be done in a team). Using interviews and other data collection methods to explore what others had to say about your display, what they learned, etc. Write a reflective piece*.
How Humanity and It's Practices Change Over Time Foreign Languages 
(Each of the following is to be completed in the foreign language(s) being studied)

  • Learn 5+ words for different recycling related concepts.
  • Read a short story about nature / the natural environment. Write a list* of new words you learned, and use those words to create sentences* related to the short story.
  • Watch a documentary about nature/the natural environment (e.g. polar bears, the desert), possibly one aimed for a younger audience or your age-group. Create a story book for younger children* based on what you learned, including pictures, new words, and full sentences.
  • Read a piece of non-fiction about nature, the environment, or a related topic. Write a report* about what you learned from the piece.
  • Explore different types of nature writing, and choosing your favorite type, research some existing pieces and then create your own piece*.
  • Explore the complete history of and writings about nature words.
  • Carry out research on one aspect of nature or the natural environment you would like to raise awareness about. Find a documentary and plan a screening and discussion session*. Record the discussion, including feedback, and write a reflective piece* about your experience of hosting the session and thoughts about the issue.

* Please note that anything with an asterisk is just a suggestion. The diversity of options with asterisks are interchangeable and purposed to stimulate your own ideas. Any one of these suggestions could be replaced with a written paper, any form of art project (drawing, painting, music, paper mache, clay, wood, knitting/embroidery, metals, etc. etc.), an experiment, a presentation, a mindmap, a computer program, a web design project, a piece of poetry or a song, an interpretive dance or play, a group project, or anything else. What we feel is most important is that both the Learner and the Teacher agree on an exercise/activity they both feel would be maximally engaging, fun, and effective.

TEACHING TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF NATURE

 Teaching technology in the context of nature, Technology Classes, One Community Technology

  • Using online or in-library resources, find a picture or diagram of a piece of technology that provides clean energy (or another environmental solution). Print out a picture of this diagram. On top of this picture, use crayons or other writing/coloring tools to color it and/or to show how you would like to change the presentation or design of this piece of technology.*
  • In your neighborhood or town, find some examples of technology or inventions that help solve environmental problems (e.g. compost bins: composting instead of creating more garbage). Take photos of them and create an electronic presentation* explaining how each piece works and how it is better for nature.
  • Choose one type of green technology (e.g. wind turbines) and find five examples of different designs. Display these different designs on a piece of paper*, and, ranking them from what you believe is best to the worst, write down why you gave each piece their rankings.
  • Write a well-researched essay* on how nature has served as inspiration for technological development. Use at least 15 modern examples of technologies inspired by nature and 5 historical ones, and the stories behind these inventions. Reflect on how some of these technologies have played a part in your life.
  • Research types of technology that are used to study nature, with specific examples. Create an electronic presentation*.
  • Research the link between computer modeling and nature in general, and then delve more deeply into a particular area that interests you (e.g. weather prediction, disease prediction). Write a well-researched paper*.
  • Write a well-researched paper* on nano-technologies and nature. Then create a presentation* for students in elementary school or high school (your choice) and practice creating at least one example (e.g. gecko tape). Invite students to observe how you make this example, or have them make it themselves with your supervision.
 Teaching innovation in the context of nature, Innovation Classes, One Community Innovation

  • Imagine yourself as an animal and draw* yourself and your habitat.
  • Imagine yourself as a superhero who is going to help improve the environment and draw* a picture of yourself.
  • Find a place where it is safe to walk with bare feet and practice at least 2 minutes of walking mindfully (walk very slowly with your eyes open). Be mindful of the feeling of the grass/dirt under your feet, the wind, the sounds, and other things you notice. Afterwards, think about the experience and reflect on what things you usually do not notice but noted in this exercise, writing down words or sentences to describe what you noticed*.
  • Find some pictures of a natural setting that is different from the surrounding in which you live. Close your eyes and imagine being in that natural setting. What do you see, hear, feel, smell, and/or taste? When you are finished, write a short paragraph* about your experience (e.g. what you saw, how you felt).
  • Research and write a 5 to 10 page report* on 10 innovative uses of bio-mimicry and describe how each is harmonious within its natural environment or a great reproduction of nature, in your opinion.
  • Research different types of walking meditation and try them all outdoors. Document your experiences and then offer to lead a group* somewhere outdoors and show them the techniques you have learned and then come together at the end to share feelings and reflections about the experience.
  • Research how going outside improves one’s memory and attention. Test this for yourself to see whether or not you feel it works and create a presentation* for your family or friends to show them what you have learned.
  • Research outdoor learning and its benefits. Find a children’s teacher or school in your area which will agree to let you observe their class learning indoors for one day and then outdoors for another day. Carry out this experiment* and write a science report* documenting what you have done, the results, and your discussion.
  • Do an in-depth analysis of innovative ways to regenerate a natural environment. Create a comprehensive plan to regenerate an environment of your choice with the aim of having it implemented. (example: Tamera Eco Settlement)*

TEACHING VALUES WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF NATURE

 Teaching values in the context of nature, Values Classes, One Community
  • Draw a colored picture of planet earth. Then draw another colored picture of planet earth, in a version that contains only all of your favorite things about nature. Place the two next to each other and compare.*
  • Take at least one photo of a place you know as it currently is, and compare it with at least one old photo of the same place, preferably before it was as developed. Interview someone that was living during both times and ask them about how they feel about the changes. Write a paragraph or two* about what has changed and how, including impacts on the surrounding natural environment.
  • Brainstorm* ways in which you can help nature in your yard, schoolyard, family member’s yard, or community and then choose one project to carry out. Take pictures and/or videos to document your project. (Option: can be done in groups)
  • Ask at least 10 adults to describe, on video, how your local environment has changed since they were little, and the changes in the values that they believe this reflects. Organize the clips, images, etc. to create a short video*.
  • Think about Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and the natural environment. For each level, write down examples of how that need (in humans) can be affected by nature or affect nature. Think about how we can balance the needs of humans with the needs of our natural environments. Create a PowerPoint presentation* showing what you have brainstormed and share it.
  • Sitting outdoors, draw* yourself as a tree. On the roots, lists things that are your strengths, and on the leaves, list things that you are in the process of changing. Use this as a springboard for a self-reflective piece* which includes reflections on doing the exercise, gratitude for, and celebration of your strengths and a realistic timeline showing how you will change certain things.
  • Everyone (regardless of age, differing levels of ability, etc.) should be able to feel they are contributing to the well being of the community and the environment if they wish to. Create and host a project* that you feel would achieve this. Document the project, and record both your reflections and the feedback of participants.
