We created a unit to introduce students to STEAM concepts by using engineering as the backbone. All resources, including activities and assessments, will be shared.

TAKEAWAYS:
-Elementary students have common misconceptions about engineers and engineering. -The engineering design process is an effective tool for designing STEAM-based lessons and units. -There are four main types of engineering (civil, mechanical, chemical, and electrical), upon which all careers within engineering are based (eg. biomedical, mining, architectural, environmental, aerospace, geological, etc.)

Childrens_Literature_Titles_used_in_STEM.pdf
List of books I use in STEM classes grades 1st-5th.
Earthquake.pdf
Earthquake activity that I did with 2nd graders to coincide with their reading curriculum. We read a story about earthquakes and using spaghetti noodles and marshmallows students created a building that would withstand an earthquake. We tested them at the end to see how they held up and had class discussions about what certain ones held up better than others.

Daily Do sensemaking tasks are designed to engage students in authentic, relevant science learning whether at home or in the classroom. Join us to explore how these phenomenon-driven tasks motivate students to engage in science and engineering practices to make sense of science ideas (disciplinary core ideas) they need to explain how or why the phenomenon occurs. No matter the grade level or science subject you teach, we have Daily Do sensemaking tasks for you!

TAKEAWAYS:
Understand what sensemaking is and how to create opportunities for sensemaking (recognize sensemaking tasks) Strategies for ensuring students are part of a rich learning community (science is social) - remote or classroom - and how being part of that community supports sensemaking Opportunities for family engagement in sensemaking tasks to build a family-school connection/community that supports all students learning science.

Show Details

The Lewis and Clark expedition offers a rich opportunity to bridge STEM, social studies, and ELA using three-dimensional learning as the foundation.

TAKEAWAYS:
Attendees will learn how to use picture books, historical fiction, as well as primary sources to engage students in STEM/Social Studies learning. Attendees will be work to solve STEM problems that simulate problems encountered by Lewis and Clark expedition. Attendees may choose to grapple with/solve problems involving either Life Science, Physical Science, or Earth and Space Science as they work through a lesson built on the 5E model. Attendees will learn to see the connections between NGSS, CCSS, and NCSS standards so they, too, can build lessons integrating all three areas.

Use dance and movement to teach science and engineering concepts to better meet the needs of kinesthetic learners. Explore how to integrate dance and science to construct a Human Machine based on simple machine movements and the engineering design process.

TAKEAWAYS:
Participants will be able to integrate dance and movement as a way to teach science and engineering concepts to better meet the needs of kinesthetic learners. Using dance to learn science in a nontraditional learning environment will allow for a variety of access points for the participants. Academic vocabulary in both disciplines will be built on during the presentation that is accessible for both a novice or more advanced-level practitioner.
