STEAM Activities in 30 Minutes for Elementary Learners
From Mike Wetta
Elementary school librarians are busy people, often juggling a fixed schedule with very little transition time between classes of varying grade levels. In this environment, hands-on activities can be difficult to implement and even more difficult to tie to standards. In this webinar, learn how to use a scaffolding approach to incorporate STEAM activities in the school library that help learners make authentic learning connections, and allow school librarians to shift the same lesson between classes and grade levels.
