a lesson plan exchange service on STEAM Education. Give to receive! Click here to X-Change!
If X= knowledge, we are exchanging it!
X-Change is a service for exchanging Lesson Plans between STEAM educators. It is a way of sharing knowledge and exchanging teaching resources, in which we transmit to other colleagues lesson plans that we have written or that we have already used. We recycle our knowledge of STEAM Education.
What is a Lesson Plan?
It is a tutorial that demonstrates how a specific STEAM educational activity is carried out or a document that contains information necessary to carry out a practical task in the context of a STEAM Education activity!
Each lesson plan received by EASE is reviewed and if selected, credits will be given to the account of the author who submits each lesson plan.
With the credits you collect, you can access other Lesson Plans from European colleagues, exchanging EASE credits you’ve accumulated.
This service has no profit goals and EASE credits only serve to value the contribution of each one.
However, EASE members receive automatically a certain amount of credits with their membership.
How does it work?
- Create an EASE account;
- Submit your own lesson plans to EASE’s X-Change;
- Gain EASE credits;
- Invest your EASE credits in other colleagues’ lesson plans. We’re exchanging!
Also leave your review about the Lesson Plans on our X-Change!
Extreme natural phenomena
Topic: Geography, Physics, Mathematics, environment
- To adapt vocabulary related to weather and natural disasters / define “natural disaster”, identify different types of natural disasters / the “cartographic” dimension of learning and daily existence;
- To differentiate between natural and man-made disasters;
- To develop skills to describe the processes that produce the phenomena;
- Using the tools and techniques necessary for spatial thinking in order to develop geographical skills In the implementation of this learning scenario we will start from brainstorming, where students will be asked to specify what extreme phenomena they know, the causes and effects that produce them. They describe the dangerous characteristics of each extreme phenomenon in Romania and compare them with those identified worldwide. Avalanches, earthquakes, fires, floods or droughts, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanoes, hail.
This lesson scenario aims at learning based on different ways of thinking and reasoning correlated with the recognition of some models, the description of some extreme phenomena, identification through images of some phenomena produced in Romania and comparison with other phenomena from other countries.
During this activity students will be familiar with theoretical notions about the extreme phenomena that have occurred in recent years more and more often, what are the causes that triggered these phenomena. Identifying the areas where most of the specified phenomena occurred, comparing them with the phenomena produced in the country.
For more explanations and technical support students will learn to use the online application EO Browser, where they will search for satellite images from this application.
