I am making the switch from Special Education to 6th Science. This year I will be teaching 6th grade Science. More than half of my students come from low-income households. I am wanting to enhance there learning through STEM education.
STEM education creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators.
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. All four of these pervades every part of our lives. By exposing students to STEM it gives them opportunities to explore these concepts and develop a passion for it. STEM makes both science and math hands-on and engaging.
The use of science, technology, engineering, and math pervades every part of our lives. By providing these STEM resources, you are giving my students an opportunity to explore these subjects hands-on and apply them to real-life situations. STEM enhances student learning and helps the student do much more than just learn.
With these resources students will be able to use STEM to:
-Develop and use a model to explain the cyclic patterns of lunar phases and eclipses of the sun and moon.
-Determine similarities and differences in findings to determine the relationship between scale, proportion, and quantity and their effects on certain properties.
-Construct a scientific explanation based on valid and reliable evidence obtained from sources (including students’ own experiments) and the assumption that theories and laws that describe the natural world.
-Develop a model to describe unobservable mechanisms.
-Design and develop a model to describe the absorption or release of energy as water changes its state and moves through the hydrologic cycle.
-Define a design problem that can be solved through the development of an object, tool, process, or systems.
