I'm a STEM Master Teacher for grades 3 -5. I spend 3 weeks at 3 different schools on a rotation basis throughout the year. I have been fortunate to receive professional development with LEGO EV3 Mindstorm Robots, Little Bits, and Vernier Probeware. I love what I do! My husband is my biggest cheerleader. I am beyond excited to meet with other educators from all over the U.S. and spend a week immersed in science and math. Having access to so much information before the academy is just incredible. #MEMTA16 PS This year has brought a new challenge. We lost two elementary STEM Teachers and now each of us serves 4 schools. We spend one week at each school. Email and texting are essential to keep up with what is happening at each school. I've been working with teachers on choosing grants to write that will help them get the materials they want and need to enrich their STEM lessons. It's exciting to have Kindergarten teachers ask for my help!

You can also go to Refine your search by grade level and topic and there are amazing resources there. I was just working with a second grade teacher who wanted to make a c...

5 Having Fun With Forces and Motion
Classroom Curling lured me in and now I have to do this. I don't have to do it; I want to do it! Playing games to teach scientific concepts ensures high engagement, and exploration on the part of the students. When we make science connect to real world experiences, students are able to apply scientific principals and create graphs on the data they create! It's a win-win for everyone!

5 How Cold is Cold?
This is a great engagement piece to highlight to students that science is in our everyday lives. I like the fact that this begins as a simple observation/question. It is tied to properties of objects and materials, heat, light, electricity, and magnetism. Transfer of energy is also evident with energy transformations. It can be used with K-4 and 5-8.

4 Scientific Arguments
I'm working hard to read as much about, argumentation in science as I can. There is a lot of pertinent information in this collection and it offers guidelines that help develop the use of data, evidence, and claims in reasoning when discussing scientific argumentation. I plan on sharing two of these articles with my colleagues.
