Add Art into your STEM program with “STEAM”

§ May 22nd, 2013 § Filed under Art, Elementary School, High School, Middle School, Science, Teacher resources § No Comments

A great resource from the Sun Sentinel in Southern Florida, STEAM is an interactive PDF with 5 activity guides that integrate art into the STEM program. STEM, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, includes an Art activity with each unit to give students a creative outlet for what they’re learning.

Activities include learning about the math and engineering behind airplanes or the science and technology of food production, with the added component of designing an airline brochure or new packaging for a food ingredient.

Adding art and a chance for students to be creative enhances and accelerates the STEM learning experience. You can find the PDF guide for STEAM here.

In celebration of Earth Day, here are some fun ways to reuse old newspapers before they make it into the recycling bin.

Create Newspaper Slippers
Learn how to make one-time-use slippers that double as a great art project.

Write Newspaper Poetry
