Teaching gifted students takes some patience and a willingness to keep going. Here are few good ideas and strategies for teaching gifted students.
Animal traits and animal groups are actually difficult for many students to learn efficiently! I can't tell you how many students over the years believe snakes have no backbone! In the Animal Traits SMASH Challenge, students will apply what they learn about animal groups and animal traits to SMASH a new animal species into existence.
What is a scientist? What is a tech expert? What is an engineer? What is an artist? What is a mathematician? Do your students know how they think?? What do they notice? What questions do they ask themselves? How do they see the world? In these integrated units students will explore each STEAM career. Use this curriculum to introduce STEM/STEAM over a five week period!!
What is a mathematician? What is mathematics? Do your students know how to think like a mathematician? What do they notice? What questions do they ask themselves? How do they see the world? In this integrated unit, All About Mathematicians, students will explore this STEAM career field.
In this challenge, students will dig into learning what it means to use the 4C's during a project. (Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creativity. Once teams are created, students will have to collect data on the letters in each member's first name. They will design a plan to engineer the letters they need to create their names.
STEM Teacher Evolution - I didn't know I was a STEM Teacher STEM Teacher? That was never in my plan. The plan I had when I got my teaching degree and my very first job. It wasn’t even a thing in 2003. What I have come to realize… I actually was always a STEM Teacher. Now…presently, I consider myself a STEAM teacher. I am more refined with technique and have integrated the Arts with impact.
Science and Engineering is finally together in a made for Google Slides Bundle!!!Do your students know how to think like scientists and engineers? What do they notice? What questions do they ask themselves? How do they see the world? Do your students have misconceptions about scientists and engineers?
Teach your students to think like STEAMologists. How do they create ideas? What are they curious about? What inspires them? How do they see the world? What if they make a mistake? What is important to them? Use these books to teach them the ways that scientists, artists, engineers, mathematicians, and tech experts.
