STEAM CHALLENGE: NATIVE AMERICAN DRUMS

Celebrate Native American History month with this STEAM oriented lesson. Students will experience hands-on what it’s like to make a Native American drum, following specific criteria and utilizing the engineering design process. Teachers will need to supply a variety of craft materials like paper, cardboard cylinder containers (like oatmeal, coffee, Pringles containers,) balloons, etc.

Kansas College and Career Ready Standards for Science

  • K-2-ETS1-1. Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.
  • K-2-ETS1-2. Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.
  • K-2-ETS1-3. Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.

WHATEVER FLOATS YOUR BOAT

Are your students up for an engineering challenge? Help them discover how to create a Mayflower ship that will float on water and carry the most mass possible. Teachers will be asked to supply foil, pennies and containers of water.

FORCE AND MOTION: THE MAYFLOWER’S JOURNEY

Students will experiment with force and motion by creating their own mini Mayflower and see if they can get it to sail to the New World. Teachers will be asked to provide clean 8 oz. milk cartons (like the ones served at lunch) and 12” balloons.

Kansas College and Career Ready Standards for Science

  • 3-PS2-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object.
  • 3-PS2-2. Make observations and/or measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.

 

 

PLATE TECTONICS

In this lesson, students are introduced to the theory of plate tectonics and explore how the theory was developed and supported by evidence. Teachers will be asked to provide a fun-size candy bar for each student.

Kansas College and Career Ready Standards for Science

  • 4-ESS2-2. Analyze and interpret data from maps to describe patterns of Earth’s features.

 

THANKSGIVING HISTORY: WHAT REALLY HAPPENED?

Why are there so many different interpretations of what happened on the first Thanksgiving? What values do the various versions reflect? In this lesson, students will examine different versions of the story of the first Thanksgiving, evaluate the evidence that supports each version and discuss why the history of Thanksgiving is so contentious.

Kansas College and Career Ready Standards for ELA:

  • RL.5.6 Describe how a narrator’s or speaker’s point of view influences how events are described.
  • RI.5.6 Analyze multiple accounts of the same event or topic, noting important similarities and differences in the point of view they represent.
  • RI.5.9 Integrate information from several texts on the same topic in order to write or speak about
  • W.5.1 Write opinion pieces on topics or texts, supporting a point of view with reasons and information.
