For this benchmark, you will create a four day mini-unit by completing the “STEM Unit Plan Template” that integrates (science, math, technology, or engineering) . 1st grade level and one area (science, math, technology, or engineering) to use as the primary content area of focus. Integrate the three remaining content areas into the unit as much as possible. Use your state’s standards (New York) to identify the learning goals and targets. Use the “Class Profile” to provide background data on your students.
In your unit be sure to outline lessons that:
Develop students’ abilities to use the major concepts of the subject area (science, technology, engineering, or math) that you selected for the unit.
Integrate concepts from the remaining three content areas to help students successfully apply their developing skills.
Incorporate effective strategies in which students engage in the equitable and appropriate use of digital tools and resources
Differentiate the instruction based on the needs of the students in the class (as outlined on the “Class Profile”), using developmentally, culturally, and linguistically appropriate teaching and learning strategies
