STEM Digital Learning Day Resources
Elementary, Middle School, and High School
If you have worked on Novel Engineering this year as a way to integrate literacy and STEM, you can continue to use this strategy as a way to engage students! Here are some ideas:
- On Twitter, there have been many schools that are reading books to their students. Use these to issue a challenge to students to find a problem in the story and use the Engineering Design Process to create a solution. Then they could take a picture of their solution and write or record a message about how their creation solves the problem.
- Here is a website with Novel Engineering resources. Some of the links are not active, but many are good to go. (Thanks, Laura Gregaydis) https://htencengineering.weebly.com/novel-engineering-lessons.html
- Here is another site found on Twitter. It offers readings of books and resources at all grade levels: https://www.weareteachers.com/virtual-author-activities/
- Another site with Picture Book Read Alouds: https://pernillesripp.com/2020/03/14/picture-books-read-aloud-videos-for-lesson-use/
