STEM Activities

Hi everyone,  I am currently doing my Student Teaching in a second grade Math/Science class. Can anyone give me any suggestions on how I could implement STEM with my ELL students?  Thank you in advance :)

Hi Gabriella, I found a TON of resources within the Learning Center for Elementary ELL and science integration! Instead of posting all the links here, I will post the link to the search so that you can find them all and see what fits your needs best! I conducted a search for "ELL" and then narrowed down to "Elementary School" in the Grade Level filter on the left-hand side: http://common.nsta.org/search/default.aspx?action=browse&text=ELL&price=&type=&subject=&topic=0&gradelevel=Elementary%20School&sort=1&page=0&dep=&coll=&author= Let me know if you find anything you plan to use! Does anyone else have specific strategies to share? Megan

I'm sharing a message I posted elsewhere in this forum. Though not specifically designed for ELL, these hands-on lessons could really engage your ELL students.
NSTA has recently published two related books by the Picture Perfect Science authors: Picture Perfect STEM, K-2 and 3-5. Each lesson is an engineering challenge tied to one or two read-aloud picture books.
