A multi-disciplinary unit and kit for middle school students.

Details

Energy 2040 is a multidisciplinary unit : Science, Math, Language Arts and Social Studies. It deals with many of our global energy issues – from the energy needs of Somalian refugees to the energy needs of millions of people in India and China. In addition to meeting Science Standards, it aligns with many of the Common Core Standards recommended for Mid-School in Math, ELA, Social Studies .

The Partnership for 21st Century Skills Global Awareness urges educators to deal with important and relevant themes. But how do you teach students about energy when they may not have any science background? Energy 2040 lets students get their hands on materials so that they can wire circuits, explore the relationship between magnetism and electricity, and much more.

Pencils and Watercolors – Grades 3 through 6

Details

This program was developed to help teachers provide quality and realistic art education to their students. In addition to techniques and skills, Journey into Art presents important art content and helps students learn how to appreciate art of different styles and from different times. All this with plenty of connections to math, science, and history.

The bin comes with all materials you’ll need for a group of 24 students. It’s important that everyone have access to their own materials so you’ll find 24 each of colored pencil sets and lots of colored chalk as well as plenty of paper. There are 24 copies of all worksheets (students draw on) and handouts (printed examples) as well as other materials that make using the kit easier. And because we know that the chalk can get a bit messy, we’ve included wet wipes to clean chalky fingers. Refill packs that replace all consumable materials are available or you can purchase individual components at www.afterschoolartkits.com. Colored Pencils & Chalk Kit contains everything you need (except water) to teach 12 lessons to 24 students!

Activities

Each lesson has three sections: Learn, Explore, and Create. Together, they take about 45 minutes although “Create” can take much longer depending on your students` interest. If you find yourself short on time, stop at the end of one section and start there the next time.
