First Grade STEM Project #2


You’ll remember last week how Ms. Darea and her first grade class were using both her regular classroom and The Outdoor Learning Center throughout the week in an in depth STEM lesson.  STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.  Teaching STEM lessons implements higher cognitive skills for students and enables them to inquire and use techniques used by professionals in the science, technology, engineering and mathematical fields.



Throughout the week, these first grade students had been studying about farming.  They learned about the food system, how tools and machines make farming easier, and about crops and farm animals.  On Friday, they used the students’ cooperative art work to tally up animals, workers, farm machines, and crops that were represented on their farms.  They then talked about numbers and whether or not they thought that there were more crops and animals  or  farm machines on real farms.  This data was then graphed and analyzed.
