    Cover of the educator's toolkit

    Our Educator's Toolkit is a collection of lesson plans, classroom activity handouts, primary documents, technology-based activities, and resources for K-12 teachers. It's designed to provide educators with step-by-step guidance to enable you to design, implement, and deliver interesting and informative lessons about the life and work of Cesar Chavez. We hope that these materials will help you develop and customize lessons to fit the needs of the students you serve.
