A few months ago we published a visual that features 20 websites perfect for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) curriculum. Today we stumbled upon this interesting resource from OER Commons that offers over 60 educational materials teachers can use to design their own STEAM curriculum. Each of these materials come with a short abstract on what it is and how you can use it in your lessons. It also provides information regarding grade level it can be used with, subject area, language, media type, accompanying activities, and many more. While almost all of these lessons are provided under a CC license, you need to make sure you read conditions of use and ‘Use Guideline’ which are usually found on the lefthand side of the lesson page.
You can search for STEAM lessons in OER Commons by subject, educational level or standard. Once you find the item you want click on its title to access a summary page to quickly learn about what the lesson is all about. To view the whole lesson together with any accompanying materials such as activities…etc click on ‘View Resource’ button. You may want to spend sometime going through these STEAM resources and see which ones work best for your class. Enjoy
