Earth Day With STEAM: Creating Tunnel Books
STEAM, or STEM education with arts added in, is the latest in a trend towards teaching integrated, meaningful lessons that bring science, technology, engineering, and math to the forefront. The Art + Design movement aims to integrate arts and design in education so that the creativity necessary for innovation can occur. Earth Day, a progressive holiday aimed at bettering the world for the future, is the perfect reason to bring STEAM to the classroom. I use century-old tunnel books with computer lab technology for an engaging lesson on the world’s biomes.
