Jump with Jill is excited to bring the excitement of the live show into your classroom and home with these standards matched lesson plans and activity sheets. Over the many years we’ve partnered with the National Watermelon Promotion Board, we’ve developed many of our songs into videos. With so much of our work educating kids going online, this next project aims to provide teachers – or parents facilitating the work of teachers – with important curriculum objectives and explosively entertaining videos through applications to healthy foods and exercise. Use the recommended videos as the activating activity for each lesson. All the lesson plans are developed using the EATS instructional model:

  • Essential questions
  • Activating prior knowledge
  • Teaching
  • Summarizing/Assessment

The five lessons range in target grade level and subject areas so all elementary students can benefit from Jump with Jill’s virtual lessons.

I hope you have as much fun doing them as we had creating them.
