Students can develop innovation, creative thinking, entrepreneurship, communication and cooperation, critical thinking, problem solving skills, 21. They need to be able to use their century skills correctly. During this period, the importance of carrying out activities that will bring awareness to the field of education to the forefront of the interests and skills that they will need for their future has become even more evident. Lesson plans enriched with STEM activities are scenarios that make critical thinking, collaborative work, self-control, peer education, and communication sound. STEM offers practical, permanent solutions to students ‘ daily life problems. Increases sustainable living skills.
Through STEM activities, our students develop themselves in these areas while increasing their interest and curiosity in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. With interdisciplinary, qualified activities, the story method draws attention primarily to the problem of daily life. In this way, they gain a different perspective on the problems of daily life. They improve themselves. They prepare for life with stem.
Aim of the lesson plan: in the mountainous region with recyclable substances, in the face of transport problems or on winter days, snow, ice, etc. it designs an emergency helicopter for school students or citizens who have difficulty accessing health care for reasons that do not have the opportunity. He learns by having fun at Root Discovery Week. Awareness gains.
Creates solutions to daily life problems. Gain design skills. At the same time, by learning to empathize, it develops values of love, respect, and help.
Our aim is to prevent global warming by using materials used in helicopter construction designed with waste materials. Plastic, etc., which is also non-disappearing and harmful substance in nature. the use of waste materials should be reduced and recycled, he said. We made our designs to contribute to the mental development of students. We learned through fun at Stem Discovery Week.
How do I reach it?
Gul, who lives in a mountainous region in the Black Sea, was uncomfortable when he arrived from school. His family was alarmed when the evening fever broke out. But they had no means to go to the nearest medical facility. Outside, the snow was knee-high. The roads were closed. His parents should have raised rose to a doctor, but how? Discuss the problem of daily life with our students. Suggestions for solutions are taken. The solutions offered are evaluated.
Lecture studies are done on case studies and designs in Turkish course. In mathematics, they make measurements while performing their designs with geometric objects. They collect data. In life science course, the importance of Safe Life and health is discussed. Students who want to design helicopters or airplanes by common decision reflect their designs on art work in the visual arts course. They paint by making helicopter drawings. They make three-dimensional designs.
After our story, which has a problem with daily life, the appropriate environment is provided for them to produce solutions using the question-answer method.
The teacher enters the lesson with waste materials in his hand. With these materials, it is realized how they can solve the problem in our story.
In visual arts class, they are asked to draw a prototype of an emergency helicopter that they will design to solve the problem of everyday life.
Students perform emergency helicopter designs with the support of their families during Distance Learning.
They bring our story to life through Drama.
In our daily life, we talk about the purposes for which the helicopter is used.
The teacher tells his students to empathize.
He asks them to help the child who is sick by the method of Drama. He states that students can make their designs with cardboard, tongue sticks, empty rolls, latches from waste materials in the house before designing an emergency helicopter. They learn by having fun while gaining awareness while making their designs. Thus, they develop sustainable social life skills.
Science: they learn that the word helicopter means moving wings. It learns that it is a rotary wing aircraft capable of vertical takeoff and landing.
Technology: students use the kahoot app.
Engineering: students design helicopters with waste materials.
Mathematics: they design helicopters with geometric objects. They use measurement tools in their design.
