Curious George – STEM Classroom Resources for EYFS and KS1

Active learning begins with curiosity! The Curious George STEM Collection is a great way to help young children understand science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts, such as measuring, building, and simple machines. Lesson plans with Curious George videos offer hands-on investigations and exciting new learning opportunities that will inspire children to explore the world around them. As students ask questions, predict outcomes, share observations, and formulate theories, they establish the science skills and “habits of mind” that lead to academic success and lifelong learning.

Android Apps for STEM Creativity

A pet peeve of mine is the fact that many apps for education are Apple only or simply just work better on apple devices.  This is a good article on some android apps that promote good dialogue including my favourites Tellagami, Pic Collage and Explain Everything. In a science lesson, these apps are good for recording and annotating equipment, methods, results, decisive conclusions in a digital environment.  This in turn promotes good use of scientific language and provides a platform for concise and insightful discussion.
