The Elementary School Garden: Arts-based Learning

Friday, March 24 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Aisle


STRAND: Teaching Strategies and Classroom Practice

Show Details

This visually descriptive overview illustrates the practical application of the Garden Project and the impact of arts-based learning in an elementary school setting by offering “how to” visuals, documentation of project set-up, engagement, and examples of student artwork. Arts integration experiences are inclusive of the three domains of learning: cognitive, affective, and psychomotor. Ask us how music, movement, and visual art have enriched the Garden Project. Music and movement activities, bookmaking, printmaking, and nature journaling samples will be displayed.

TAKEAWAYS:
Participants will learn about teacher-tested lessons connected to garden-based learning and the arts (visual art, music, and movement) for the K-6 classroom.

SPEAKERS:
Aurora Hughes Villa (Utah State University: No City, No State), Lisa Saunderson (Edith Bowen Lab School / Utah State University)

Using Nature of Science in the Classroom

Friday, March 24 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Aisle


STRAND: Research to Practice

Show Details

Have you wondered how to teach the Nature of Science in an engaging way? Do you know that there are free accessible websites to help. Come see how a few simple activities that allow students to access the other dimension of the NGSS standards.

TAKEAWAYS:
Come away with free resources of Nature of Science activities. In addition learn the backed research principles that make this dimension of NGSS vital for scientific literacy.

Integrating Literacy and Science in Elementary Classrooms with Multiple Literacies in Project-Based Learning (ML-PBL)

Saturday, March 25 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Aisle


STRAND: Research to Practice

Show Details

ML-PBL teachers find ways to further integrate literacy and science throughout their day. ML-PBL's free OER project-based curriculum resources support students in applying their figuring out and critical thinking processes to all subject areas. Check it out!

TAKEAWAYS:
Attendees will be exposed to free resources and ideas for selecting resources for literacy lessons that allow students to continue to fine tune and extend the ideas they are developing in science class. Handouts with links to additional resources will be available.

SPEAKERS:
Susan Codere (CREATE for STEM Institute, Michigan State University, Retired)

Support in Development of The Science and Engineering Practices: Using Fairy and Folk Tales as Interdisciplinary Exemplars of The Practices

Saturday, March 25 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Aisle


STRAND: Teaching Strategies and Classroom Practice

Show Details

The Science and Engineering Practices can be difficult to communicate to students, and hard to find ways to practice. Fairy and folk tales can serve as examples, and research-based strategies to practice and give feedback to students. The Three Pigs, The Emperor's Wardrobe, and other tales can represent the practices, while short biographies of scientists and engineers can show real examples. Practice activities, with appropriate strategies and scaffolds, can give students opportunities to engage in the practices and get feedback. All of these are based on the research presented in Schwarz et al 2016 and the literature since. The materials will be provided free to teachers.

TAKEAWAYS:
Get, and learn how to use, materials for supporting the Science and Engineering Practices, including tales, practice activities, and teaching structures.

SPEAKERS:
Rob Wallace (: Kenner, LA)

STEM Meets Reading: Supporting Teachers through Engagement and Materials for Reading Integration

Saturday, March 25 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Aisle


STRAND: Teaching Strategies and Classroom Practice

Show Details

Creating primary and intermediate STEM-focused classrooms can be challenging. This session will highlight strategies and examples to incorporate both STEM and science activities into their classrooms. Resources that use trade books to teach Science/STEM concepts will be modeled and discussed

TAKEAWAYS:
Participants will engage in example activities that make connections between quality children’s literature that support STEM topics, STEM investigations, and reading strategies.

SPEAKERS:
Christine Anne Royce (Shippensburg University: Shippensburg, PA)
