K-12 Lesson Plans & Resources

Lesson Plans, Prepared Classroom Kits & Instructional Videos

Check out the lesson plans and instructional videos below for great hands-on activities in the classroom that can be applied to any subject matter! For teachers who are experienced in bookmaking and have taken a past workshop, we offer prepared class sets of bookmaking materials on a limited basis, at no cost. Teachers can request kits for their class once each school year as our staffing and resources allow, for up to 40 students. You must be able to pick up materials at the Book Arts Studio in the Marriott Library, during open studio hours (see current hours posted at right). Class sets will be bundled and ready to pass out. We'll include a lesson plan and a couple extra sets so you can prepare your lesson. Tools such as glue sticks and scissors are not included in kits. For more information or to request class sets, please email us at k12bookarts@utah.edu
