Title: Integrating STEM and Literacy
Date and Time: 2/9/21 at 4:15 pm
STEM does not have to be its own content or specials rotation. You can add STEM into your lessons today, well tomorrow. We have developed some easy stories and lesson plans to share with you and your colleagues. These lessons are great places to start building STEM in your lessons. #VirtualSTEMBus
Our STEM resources were built with the hope that any teacher could implement our units into his/her classroom. Whether we are virtual, hybrid, or face-to-face, students can embark on a cross-curricular journey that both engages and teaches 21st century skills. Embedded into every unit is a literacy component, connections to NGSS and the new KAS Technology Standards. Our units are designed to last approximately 1-2 weeks, roughly 30-45 minutes a part. These units are designed to be utilized however a teacher sees fit, whether it be during independent learning time or whole group.
We will be adding level 2 extension units to each of our existing ones. If you would like to learn more, check out our Intermediate Units and Teacher Overview Videos. Much more resources to come!
