Fish Tank Learning formally Match Fish Tank (FREE Lesson Plan Repository)
I absolutely loved this site in 2017 and I still absolutely love this site as we head in to 2022! Fish Tank has a free lesson plan repository fully developed for elementary plus some middle and high school as well. You can view, share, and download the curriculum used every day at Match Charter School, the PreK-12 public school that was opened almost 20 years ago in Boston.
These materials have been developed and curated by teachers and curriculum experts over many years. In addition, they have a site for instructional coaches and teacher leaders for professional development. These experts think teachers should spend more time planning how to teach — with the unique learning needs of their students in mind — and less time worrying about the basics of what to teach. Good baseline curriculum and assessments free for teachers to do just that.
Fishtank Learning is an effort to share our curriculum with teachers everywhere to lessen their load and help them on the road to amazing classroom learning. Throughout the curriculum development process, the curriculum team draws inspiration from educators inside and outside of Match. They would like to acknowledge the incredibly hard work of Match teachers who teach the curriculum shared on this site and help us continuously improve the course materials. They are also grateful to the other schools and education organizations that make their curriculum freely available. Throughout the course materials on this site, you will see frequent references to resources created by others outside of Fish Tank. They have tried to acknowledge our reliance on outside materials wherever that occurs. They welcome users to draw from and use their materials in the same way.
