This project-based learning lesson plan mega bundle includes a large number of ready-made student-directed project-based learning resources.

This bundle eliminates all of the work on the front end of any project-based learning experience, saving you tons of time that you can instead spend on guiding students and enjoying the experience.

This bundle also includes a bonus student-led project-based teaching manual. It includes everything you need to know to facilitate PBL.

The lesson plans for project-based learning included in this bundle meet a variety of skill levels.

Some are for beginner project-based learners and others are for those that are more experienced, making it the ideal bundle for helping develop confident project-based learners across the board.

For each project-based learning lesson plan, students choose a subtopic to explore under a given theme.

Each project offers many opportunities for student choice, such as their subtopic, how they will gather information, which community experts to work with, how they will demonstrate learning, how they will present their final product, and who their authentic audience will be (all essential principles of PBL).

The opportunity for choice sprinkled into an otherwise teacher-directed learning experience helps transition students to self-directed project-based learners.

This is not technically a growing bundle, but I do occasionally add a new resource if I believe it to be a good fit.

Important Notes:

  • All lesson plans for project-based learning included in this bundle have a printable version, and most of the resources have a Google Slides digital option. I am gradually updating resources to include a digital version.
  • The project-based learning lesson plan resources are not editable.
  • The bundle is significantly discounted (30% off) because you will see some overlap. Each guided PBL resource, for example, includes the same rubric.
  • This bundle is not a unit or a course. It is a compilation of my project-based learning lesson plan resources across a wide range of topics and subjects for you to pick and choose from. PBL is cross-disciplinary. Students gain content knowledge AND gain essential 21st-century skills.

This project-based learning lesson plan mega bundle is great for:

  • summer school curriculum
  • high school advisory projects
  • a passion project course or seminar
  • educators and students that are new to project-based learning - you DO NOT need experience in PBL to facilitate these lesson plans for project-based learning.

  1. Teacher and student guides
  2. Topic brainstorming activity options
  3. Project-based learning checklist
  4. Project planner
  5. Research guide
  6. "Challenge Yourself" extension options
  7. Project-based learning rubrics
  8. Project learning reflection template
