Lesson Ideas and Learning Activities

Using the ETP Lesson Library

We've collected lesson ideas and learning activities from classroom teachers and experienced ham radio instructors that you can use and embellish with your own ideas or adapt to the specific needs of your student audience or curriculum topic.  Where appropriate, we've linked these lessons and activities to science and math curriculum standards.

These lessons and activities are organized around six general topics.  You'll find indiciations of the appropriate audience for each lesson or activity.  We've also provided some identified reference material that we think might also prove useful. 

We are interested in receiving your feedback about any of these ideas or activties, or information about how you have successfully implemented or enhanced them.  Please contact us at etp@arrl.org with your comments.
