It absolutely can Katherine
Jen Gutierrez
01:38:47
We'll show some examples
Joan
01:39:32
Lydia changed the way I teach. She couldn’t read and struggle with everything. Instead of a test, quiz I told them to do a project and Lydia stood in front of the class and told me everything about our topic!
Rachel Kennerly (she/her)
01:40:06
I like that modification Joan!
Joan
01:41:11
I teach sp. ed. So I have to get creative.

that's it!
Joan
01:43:18
She went on to design clothing. It was clarity for both of us. Why I love teaching!
Carla Gull
01:45:22
“Playing around” and “messing about” with the elements really helps students make their own meaning and connect with the topic.
Theresa Colquitt
01:45:46
How do you choose relevant phenomena to connect to “real-world”?
Rachel Kennerly (she/her)
01:46:13
talk about local phenomena!

The link is incorrect. It linked to March 4th
Rachel Kennerly (she/her)
01:57:26
as an informal educator i use this idea to make my programs relevant to teachers. that they will gain so much by booking one of our environmental education programs.
Wendy Binder, NSTA
01:57:34
let me check it!
Wendy Binder, NSTA

or say its math time when its just learning time!
Wendy Binder, NSTA
02:03:39
its in the collection
Jen Gutierrez
02:03:40
Yes! I love that Wendy!
Rachel Kennerly (she/her)
02:03:43
i love templetes!
Joan
02:04:44
Me too!!
megan campbell
02:05:06
Learning about this in my college classes now! Awesome!
Wendy Binder, NSTA
02:05:34
good for your professor!
haileytanner
02:06:52
Is there an exemplar somewhere of this model in use?
Karen Delgado
02:07:23
I work with teachers in west Africa… they tend to think STEM is all about using technology. This will help me when I share with them.
Wendy Binder, NSTA
02:08:06
we will address the questions in the next slide or two- hang on I see your questions!
Rachel Kennerly (she/her)
02:08:06
I was in K-2 (elementary school) in the 90s and i dont remember any things as interactive as STEM. we read from a book. life goal is to have all the classes i work with not experience that
Dua Chaker
02:08:11
Can you please share the link to the template?
Wendy Binder, NSTA
02:08:22
its in he collection https://my.nsta.org/collection/hl_s1tKZuoIs_E
Dua Chaker
02:08:27
Thanks!
Jen Gutierrez
02:09:09
Yes Karen! A great side-bar lesson would be to have them experience items like a plastic spoon, glue stick, and recipe card. They are all forms of technology!! They will have to figure out why and begin to understand that technology is anything human-created to improve our lives!
Wendy Binder, NSTA
02:09:11
common misconception
Lauren Beal
02:09:16
My school uses FOSS and I like how this template mirrors the curriculum and can expand/personalize the Foss lessons for my class/students.
Wendy Binder, NSTA
02:09:44
FOSS aligns well
Roslinawati M Roslan
02:10:20
How much maths and science should I include in my STEM lessons?
Karen Delgado
02:10:34
I had a 5th grade teacher back in the 60’s that used STEM and Gardners MI…. I believe good teachers everywhere have taught this way!!
Rachel Kennerly (she/her)
02:10:56
what is FOSS?
Wendy Binder, NSTA
02:11:19
a curriculum from Lawrence hall of science- Full Option Science System
Joan
02:11:20
I love this format and I can’t wait to use in my class
Karen Delgado
02:11:32
I was too!!! 40 years!!
Rachel Kennerly (she/her)
02:11:32
thank you wendy
Jen Gutierrez
02:11:37
Tell us how it goes Joan!! ☺️
Wendy Binder, NSTA
02:11:40
sure thing
Virginia Hohl
02:11:48
I used to teach the students that a chair is a form of technology- a way we sit more comfortably.
Wendy Binder, NSTA
02:12:04
it is tech Vurginia!
Wendy Binder, NSTA
02:12:09
virginia
Virginia Hohl
02:12:11
Then they talk about simple chairs and more complex chairs that do different things.
Karen Delgado
02:12:19
And…my students always did well on science standardized tests…they knew how to THINK..
Jen Gutierrez
02:12:21
Exactly Virginia!!
Wendy Binder, NSTA
02:13:01
I did a whole STEM unit in elementary by bringing in one egg-- and asking a driving quesiton
Jen Gutierrez
02:13:04
I firmly believe ALL students can take ANY standardized test when we first teach them how to THINK and PROBLEM SOLVE!!
Wendy Binder, NSTA
02:13:15
agreed Jen!
Lauren Beal
02:13:43
Love this slide!

Use of engineering design in service of science education
1A: ciarra brock
02:15:01
i don't have a classroom yet but i have been doing a lot of observations and gathering good ideas for the future!
Catherine Krause
02:15:02
as a middle school teacher i integrate engineering design projects with the story line
Karen Delgado
02:15:04
I did a similar activity of the covered wagon when I was in Nigeria!!! Kids engineered faux “bobsleds” and sent down ramps… it was the first time Nigerians had a bob sled in the Olympics. The science class was on a recycle unit and the other on a force/motion unit. They learned what bob sleds were. The most difficult thing for me coaching the teachers was that the teachers wanted to tell the kids what would work/not work. I ended up making the teachers students and allowing them to build their own. LOL
Elizabeth Hayes
02:15:14
I am a STEAM teacher so every lesson I try to include multiple areas. One of my favorite is in the spring exploring how plants grow, in a bag with a wet paper towel, and in dirt and tracking growth
Elizabeth Das
02:15:20
I do a novel in my science classes with my middle schoolers that is science based but fiction.
Roslinawati M Roslan
02:15:22
Depending on the learning objectives of the lessons
Isaac Gadson
02:15:29
I asked a lot of questions about a questions
Catherine Krause
02:15:36
also open ended questions about the topics we are doing in class
Wendy Binder, NSTA
02:15:36
and this age is always designing and redesigning things -
Elizabeth Hayes
02:15:59
I want my students to design a garden for our new school we are moving into and then care for it
Carla Gull
02:16:10
Open ended explorations, such as seed exploration and experimentation
Joan
02:16:16
Elizabeth how do you start this/ topic?
Wendy Binder, NSTA
02:16:37
great Elizabeth! and let them select where to put it that's a big research question!
Rachel Kennerly (she/her)
02:16:39
i have a 500 acre park along a river full of wetlands, meadows and forest to explore and teach in.
Catherine Krause
02:16:44
@Elizabeth Hayes I have students who designed a meditation garden. It is going to be built this year
Karen Delgado
02:16:45
I have been known to
Roslinawati M Roslan
02:16:48
I like the idea of using phenomena to engage the students earlier in the class
Karen Delgado
02:17:09
I have been known to “harvest” snow and store it in the faculty room freezer.
Jennifer Hoffman
02:17:26
I love the idea of a designing and cultivating a meditation garden!
Joan
02:17:31
I use the weather and have my students design ways to help people in trouble.
Wendy Binder, NSTA
02:17:34
great ROslinawati- check out our daily dos https://www.nsta.org/daily-do
Elizabeth Hayes
02:17:34
I start it as a unit on plants, include the parts of a plant, how bugs help plants, and how plants can help communities, I use it as an entire unit. I am a STEAM teacher so I am fortunate and can dedicate my entire period to the subject.
Lauren Beal
02:17:38
We just read Leafman and talked about Fall, went on a leaf hunt at recess, and designed a leaf collage…we did an experiment to see how leaves change colors. It was so fun!
Jen Gutierrez
02:17:44
Ooooo meditation garden!!
