Unit-Long or Year-Long STEM Project Ideas?

Sun Dec 10, 2017 12:45 AM

Hello!

I am a preservice teacher, who will be a full time teacher in the Fall, and was wondering if anyone has any great ideas for year-long (or unit-long) projects? I really want to try incorporating hands on projects in my future classroom that implement STEM. I will be certified to teach between the grade levels of EC-6 so I am open to a variety of ideas!

Thanks!

Jessica, there are a lot of opportunities for long-term projects that require some initial set up with ongoing observations. A lot of it depends on what you are passionate about and able to tackle. I suggest looking at

I chose Bottle Biology because I have done this with 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders and it's always interesting and exciting. Look around and see what you like.
