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!

We should all be life long learners and encourage students to be the same.

I totally forgot to mention Picture Perfect Science books from NSTA!

That's a really good question. I live in Louisiana and we are just starting integrating the NGSS Standards this fall. You might want to look at the NGSS Rubric that is correlated with the lessons and units and see if that would work for you. https://www.nextgenscience.org/resources/equip-rubric-lessons-units-science

5 Engineering Design
This looks like a highly engaging lesson and there is no stretch of the imagination when engaging students in math, science, engineering, energy, and CER!

5 Wind at Work
Great article with details about how to make a wind turbine for students in 3-5 to explore how wind words and how wind can create energy that we can use. It is so much better to show children how things work than merely telling them! Great collection.

5 Use Those Temperature Probes
This is an engaging way to use Vernier Temperature Probes in a real-life application! I'm sharing this with the middle school teachers.
