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!
STE(A)M IT INTEGRATED LESSON PLAN Plants-Superheroes
Awareness about importance of ecology and sustainable development are values that need to be nurtured from very young age. Children should learn about symbiosis with nature around us. With various activities students (age 5-8) will discover the importance of plants in our lives through scientific (STEAM) research and conclude how an individual can contribute to the salvation of our planet Earth by taking care of plants. Why plants are superheroes, not only they are creating oxygen, clean the air, feed us and give us lots of benefits, but they are also important part of an ecosystem and their existence influence all life on earth. The students will explore what living conditions are important for plants to live, develop and grow, and what can we do to help them thrive.
Students will have an opportunity to explore Real- life questions:
Are the plants alive and how can we prove our statement?
How are the plants useful?
What can we do to preserve the plants on our planet?
