Using STEAM Strategies
With STEAM strategies, Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics are taught in an interdisciplinary manner using a real world, problem-solving approach. Students have the opportunity to see how the subjects, and skills they involve, are related to each other. Students work with each other using an inquiry and hands-on approach while connecting their topic of study to a valid, real-world, open-ended problem.
The resources in this tool kit are designed to give you some ideas on how to use STEAM strategies in your classroom, provide you sample lesson plans and templates to build from, and link you to additional resources on the topic. Additional STEAM activity idea and lesson plan Teacher Tools can be found with many videos throughout the Educate.Today website.
