Simon Sinek says, “Champions are not the ones who always win races – champions are the ones who get out there and try. And try harder the next time. And even harder the next time. ‘Champion’ is a state of mind.” This feature is dedicated to developing future innovators and glass shatterers of all genders with comprehensive, K-5, STEM-focused lessons and units that are aligned to Common Core & NGSS and utilize the SAMR model for technology integration.
It’s one thing to integrate STEM into a K-5 lesson plan or unit…it’s another thing entirely to integrate STEM in such a way that empowers ALL students to explore these fields while learning regular content. Each unit showcases a “SHEro” in STEM from around the world, aligns to Common Core & NGSS standards while integrating a variety of devices and strategies that goes much deeper than a “toy” for indoor recess.
