Adding STEAM to Your Shavuot Curriculum

Adding STEAM to Your Shavuot Curriculum

There are many ways to connect math and the counting of the omer. These connections can happen naturally within a math lesson but can also be looked at in a Judaic studies classroom. As we count the omer we are reminded how many days there are left until Shavuot. This year, Shavuot falls at the end of school year, when everyone is trying to cram in final lessons and projects. Most teachers are thinking about grabbing their students’ attention in creative ways and about the best Shavuot cheesecake recipe. We collected a list of resources that can help you organize and plan some Shavuot activities for your students that are usable throughout both general and Judaic studies curriculum. These lessons, projects, videos, books, and resources will infuse STEAM into your classroom and engage your students.

Participants will explore ways to apply technology to curriculum in meaningful ways in service of student-centered learning. Together, we will discuss our experiences with technology in the classroom and support each other in figuring out what learning challenges we can address by drawing on technological applications, websites, social media, games, and more. We will learn about new tools and apps and how they can be used across grades and subjects. Regardless of whether you are brand new to using technology in the classroom and want to learn, or whether you are an experienced pro who wants to grow their personal learning network and collaborate with educators at other schools, this is the home for your ed tech exploration! All skill levels are welcome.
