Explore tech-based teaching units that integrate the teaching of reading and writing with the teaching of important science and mathematics concepts. Units include children’s books, poems and writing activities along with simple, hands-on, science activities and connections to mathematics in order to promote student understanding of standards-based concepts within a holistic setting. Attention to student thinking is built into the teaching units because children rarely come to science class without their own ideas about the world. Formative assessment and sense-making activities are included to ensure that students are focused on those components critical for learning. This session introduces teachers to the structure of the units and includes opportunities to experience units that address learning standards related to sound, scientific inquiry and helping students use evidence to support their understanding of the world.
