Just Playing Around: Teaching STEM Through Inquiry, Exploration, and Play, PK – Grade 1 – Integrating STEM Throughout the Day

Children are naturally curious, full of questions, creative, and playful. This four-part workshop series uses the concept of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) as play; children are engaged in asking questions, making discoveries, experimenting, working with others, and working toward proficiency in the VELS, NGSS and CCSS standards. The format of each workshop reflects this playful approach to STEM. Participants will interact with each other, ask questions, explore materials, and play. This final workshop in the four part series addresses the question, “How can I use this in my classroom?” Participants will draw upon the knowledge, instructional strategies, and tools they acquired in the first three workshops to create integrated, playful, and rich learning experiences for children. Participants will leave armed with concrete plans for implementing developmentally appropriate learning experiences throughout the day that integrate STEM.
