Explore then joined We Are Teachers (2013 - 2017) as an activity blogger, providing teachers with unique S.T.E.A.M. ideas to use in the classroom. Lessons on TpT focus on real world, meaningful learning that gets kids to interact, create and most importantly EXPLORE! (Photo of kids in Toulouse, France creating Geo Art!
