I was lucky enough to be in year two of the School Librarians Advancing STEM Learning (SLASL) project led by the Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management (ISKME) in partnership with Granite State University, New Hampshire, and funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS). I worked with the most fabulous math teacher, Becky Hanna on a Geometry project involving fractals and city planning designs.
We used the OER Commons unit plan template to develop and share our units. Check out the NH cohort on the OER Commons site here.
Our lesson was created to model text-based inquiry in STEM. Over the course of the unit, students explored a variety of texts and grew in their knowledge of fractals, city design, and ability to use informational text to support their inquiry and research.
Let us know what you think of our unit.
