Drop Zone

Initial online content is the open sourced curriculum “Drop Zone” for 6th-8th graders who must determine how to drop emergency supplies in a target location.


This scenario was created for the GCSC to be used for grades 6-8. It is aligned to grade band standards in the areas of math, science, technology, and engineering.  The Drop Zone unit is made up lessons that can be used independently or sequentially.  The lessons have a strong focus in authentic learning and are designed for students to research the information needed and to build their own products. There are not necessarily right or wrong answers for parts of this unit. The Drop Zone is just one of the resources on our community collaboration site. Click here to find the Drop Zone curriculum.
