Distance Learning Units of Study

The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) designed units of study in grades K-12 that are focused on grade-level essential learnings in each content area. These units were purposefully designed to integrate content, provide flexibility, and choice. The units of study connect content in the following areas: English language arts, English language development, mathematics, science, history/social science, arts, computer science, and physical education through integrated study in K-5 and thematic units in grades 6 through high school. Assessment opportunities (formative and summative) and student feedback are embedded and intentionally developed.

How to Download

These open-source units are available in Google to ensure maximum flexibility for educators to personalize them for use with their preferred instructional platform. To access, select your grade level and unit, download or copy the files, and use the resources in your preferred distance learning instructional platform.

Learning at Home BINGO

In 2020, the San Diego County Office of Education partnered with The San Diego Union-Tribune to develop Learning at Home Bingo, a weekly series available digitally and in paper format, so everyone regardless of access to a device or the internet could participate. The weekly lessons integrated different content areas across grades K-12. Each activity is accessible for all students and support the efforts of parents and teachers.

  • Time: how long we exercise
  • Type: participating in more challenging activities;
