Greetings! I am in ST1 and placed in a Kindergarten grade level. I have wondered about the apropriate methods of implementing STEM for Kindergarteners. It is my understanding that students in Elementary grades levels will find STEM engaging when it appeals to their prior knowledge. Sometimes finding topics that connects the students to real-world situations can be a start to introducing them to simple fun concepts that will engage them to want to explore and investigate further (e.g., ice melting, floating objects, magnetic testing, etc.) However, some learning activities if not taught appropriately can end up counterproductive. While searching for fun STEM activities to implement in the curriculum, we should consider the 5E’s (i.e., Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate) to support and assess their learning.
