Content Connection Samples (Kindergarten through 5th Grade)

Content Connection Samples are designed to provide examples of cross-content (multi-disciplinary) connections within the Colorado Academic Standards at grades kindergarten through 5. The connections provided here are only a small sampling of the possible connections between the ten content areas adopted by the State Board of Education.

Content Connections are intended to facilitate integrated instruction when possible at the elementary level. Elementary educators teaching standards in multiple content areas can build interdisciplinary instructional plans using Content Connection Samples found here or find unique connections of their own.
