Remember how closely you followed a recipe when you learned to cook? And now you use recipes mostly for inspiration and general guidance? These LifePractice PBL recipe cards are just like that, with a delicious anchoring artifact you know your kids will love, and listing of content "ingredients" you know will deliver quality nutrition to your students' minds.

Our LifePractice PBL recipe cards for Project/Problem Based Learning are built specifically for K12 use with groups or individual students. Each card features an intriguing problem where students are able to then integrate core content, such as Math, Science, Social Studies, Reading, and Writing into their solutions. Every problem includes deeply embedded creativity, problem-solving, and collaborative learning.

The fully-customizable LifePractice PBL recipe cards are packaged in content sets, but we encourage you to integrate as many of the content ingredients you can for a complete meal of PBL. Teachers are able to ramp up or scale back the complexity of each card to create the unit that feeds the students at their tables. Each set includes unit cards that give the beginning or advanced PBL teacher a variety of topics to capture and engage kids’ minds and hearts.

Use these cards year after year for a different PBL experience each time!
