August thematic STEAM Units with a focus on Mathematics.
Your students build mathematical proficiency with thematic lessons correlated to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics standards. You will find easy-to-use lessons providing practical strategies and problem-solving activities. The math and poetry lessons are themed around August special days and holidays:
National Back-to-School Month
National Sandwich Month
National Friendship Week
National Ride the Wind Day.
Students gain access to the work of great poets by understanding and recognizing poetic forms. Need a creative STEAM math lesson idea? Simply turn to one of the selected days and you’re off and running. The math and poetry lessons are classroom-tested and provide enjoyable learning experiences in a variety of environments: traditional classrooms, home schooling, after-school programs, scouting, and gifted and talented programs. The resources and learning approaches are especially suited for gifted learners as they are inquiry-based and provide discovery learning opportunities with lots of higher-level questions. The activities also encourage student choice for independent or group work.
