Lake County Strong

  • Lake County Strong is a K-12 interdisciplinary unit designed for family distance learning. This unit is designed to meet the learning goals of students and teachers and  provide the distance learning support parents need. The unit will enable parents to support one or more students in their family across multiple grades in completing engaging educational activities that focus on Lake County past and present. 

    Please review all activities prior to assigning to students, so that you can determine how best to support your students. All activities can be accessed online or through printed materials. Teachers creating paper packets will need to make copies of all relevant materials for activities. We have provided links to make it easy to print and provide materials to students/families. 

    Lake County Strong Components

    1. Activities - Students will complete at least two Lake County-focused activities in each of these areas: English Language Arts, Math, Science, and History/Social Studies. Students will have the freedom to choose activities of interest or even design their own.  Every activity has tasks appropriate for each grade span: TK-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12. If desired, families can select the same activities and have students at multiple grade levels support each other in completing tasks. 
    2. Community Building Project - Each family or student will complete a community service project to make Lake County Strong. The unit includes example activities, or students/families may consult with you about creating their own.   
    3. Final Project - Each student can select from a long list of options or design their own project to demonstrate what makes Lake County Strong.  This project should be inspired by all previous activities, and creatively is highly encouraged!

    Please remember to differentiate all activities for students with IEP/504 plans and add in designated English Learner Development (ELD) lessons for students who are EL.

    Note: We are actively encouraging parents to support great habits during distance learning, including having their student(s) engage in at least 30 minutes of physical activity and read (or by read to) for at least 30 minutes each day.
