Samarakoon, Deepanee; Smith, Latisha L. – Journal of STEM Arts, Crafts, and Constructions, 2016
In this practical article, a kindergarten teacher shares a lesson designed to teach students about the power of wind. To address the Next Generation Science Standards engineering standards, students discussed the negative and positive aspects of wind and made daily weather observations (K-ESS2-1). Students constructed bird-shaped windsocks, called…
