New to STEM

Sun Apr 24, 2016 7:11 PM

I'm a pre-service teacher who will be student teaching in a fourth grade classroom in the fall. STEM has always been something that has interested me and I think that it is something very important for kids. I would love to incorporate some STEM activities and/or units next semester in the classroom I'm student teaching in. Do you have an suggestions? I would love to hear about what worked and what didn't. Are there any books that can go along with STEM teaching? What are some of your favorites?

I am in my first semester of student teaching in a first grade classroom and I have an idea of how I would like to begin implementing STEM into my classroom once I have my own. I love the idea of having STEM activities as morning work to get student's brain's thinking and exercising. I think stations would be an engaging and effective way to get students excited about STEM. Exploring stations in this way can be a natural or authentic way for students to explore and learn!
