Georgia World Congress Center - A411

STRAND: No Strand

Show Details

This STEM activity includes reading a book and involves one-hour lessons over seven days. Student groups design, build, test, and analyze parachute models.

Student groups learn that the engineering design process and the scientific method are circular processes as they design, build, test, and evaluate a parachute model then improve it.

STRAND: Teaching Strategies and Classroom Practice

Show Details

Come to a fun, interactive workshop on integrating elementary science with math and writing. Learn how we prepare elementary science teachers to integrate across content areas in meaningful ways for students. Leave with a plan for integrating your own curriculum standards in your classroom.

Students collecting data in science creates multiple possibilities to integrate math and writing. This session focuses on taking commonly used investigations and adding interdisciplinary connections. Attendees will learn strategies to integrate writing and math to argue scientific claims.
