For this assignment, you will design a comprehensive and engaging STEAM unit plan that aligns with learning goals and standards and integrates diverse STEAM disciplines and strategies.
STEP 1: Choose a STEAM topic or theme that you are interested in teaching, topic is the concept of buoyancy by designing and building their own boats using materials like foil, straws, and clay. Students can test their boats in water and see how much weight they can hold. I would bve teaching this lesson to 3rd graders
STEP 2: Use the STEAM unit plan template to design a detailed unit plan that includes the following components:
Unit title and overview: Clearly state the unit title and provide a brief summary of the unit goals, topics, and activities.
Learning goals and standards: Identify specific learning goals and standards that align with the unit topic and grade level, and describe how they will be assessed.
Cross-disciplinary connections: Explain how the unit integrates multiple STEAM disciplines and concepts, such as science, technology, engineering, art, and math, and how they will be applied in real-world contexts.
Lesson plans and activities: Develop detailed lesson plans structure and activities that promote inquiry-based learning, hands-on experimentation, and collaborative problem-solving, and that address diverse learning styles and needs. (You do not have to create scriipted lesson plans but the unit should include details about what will be covered, and how it will be assessed).
Resources and materials: List the resources and materials needed for each lesson, including books, websites, software, equipment, and supplies, and describe how they will be used.
Assessment and feedback: Describe how student learning and progress will be assessed and evaluated throughout the unit, and how feedback will be provided to students and parents.
STEP 3: Submit your completed STEAM unit plan, along with any supplementary materials, such as diagrams, photos, or videos, in a clear and organized format.
