In our HOT Block arts integration class, we decided to give the students another STEM lesson that added art and design to create some STEAM. The students wrote questions and planned their pencil holder. The only rules were that it had to hold at least one pencil, and they needed to use the materials provided. For this challenge, we decided to leave it open so students had room to explore, design and create.
Have you taught any steAm-y lessons?
I’d love to hear about them. Share in the comments, below!
