Elkader STEAM Day

Dubuque STEAM Day


Elementary STEAM Day 2018 was held in October 2018 at both the Dubuque and Elkader office! During the day, students engaged in a day focused on NGSS- Earth's Place in the Universe by working in teams to explore science, technology, engineering, and math concepts. 

Driving question: What is needed to live on the moon?

Standards connections: Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)

  • 5-ESS1-1: Support an argument that differences in the apparent brightness of the sun compared to other stars is due to their relative distances from the Earth.
  •  5-ESS1-2: Represent data in graphical displays to reveal patterns of daily changes in length and direction of shadows, day and night, and the seasonal appearance of some stars in the night sky.
  • Crosscutting concepts: Patterns, Scale, Proportions, and Quantity
  • Science and Engineering Practices: Developing and Using Models, Planning and Carrying Out Investigations, Using Mathematics and Computational Thinking
