Teach the Teachers! Professional Development: 5 Patterns in Nature

Teach the Teachers! Professional Development: Connecting STEAM Concepts with STEM-based Activities
Visiting Artist Yvonne Manipon

These workshops are designed to help classroom teachers integrate visual arts into lessons on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). By adding a visual arts component to lessons, we’ll help you go from STEM to STEAM! Participants will enjoy hands-on activities and will walk away with new ideas and lessons that are ready to go right into the classroom. Ideal for classroom teachers of preschool and elementary age students, these lessons can be applied to Common Core English Language Arts and Humanities and Math and Science standards. Note: Enrollment is limited and pre-registration is required! Preference is given to teachers who work in a classroom setting. 

Five Patterns in Nature: Science and Math Connections #1337
Friday, 1 day
June 24 / 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Participants will discover visible regularities of form found in nature while creating connections with mathematics to help explain abstract patterns. Natural patterns include spirals, meanders, packing, branching and explosion. Students will create drawings/paintings that explore beautiful abstract patterns found in nature.
