Integrating STEAM into Infant/Toddler Curriculum
The objective of this assignment is for the advanced preservice teacher to be able to design appropriate STEAM activities for infants and toddler. This assignment is divided into two parts: a) Design four STEAM lesson plans for infants/toddlers, b) create a mind map for one of the lesson/activity plans to share on Peergrade
Part One: Lesson Plans – 24 points
Write-up four lesson plans (use the infant/toddler lesson plan attached to this assignment) that are not explicitly found in your STEAM text using the following science disciplines:
● Earth Science
There will be a total of 4 lesson plans/activities when Part One is completed. Submit the four lesson plans into Brightspace. Each lesson/activity plan is worth 8 points. You can submit all four merged into one document if preferred.
Part Two: Mind Map – 16 points
Select one of the four lesson plans and create a visual representation in a mind map.
The mind map visually displays the major concepts from the selected lesson plan. For many of you (if not all), mind mapping is new – but you know about curricular webbing – mind mapping is webbing using technology. The emphasis is on designing a creative, visual map of major connections found in the lesson plan.
In your Mind Map include the following:
● Name of activity and age span
● Infant/Toddler Standards
● Learning Goals (science and non science)
● Connections to STEAM
● Connections to Inquiry
After creating the final version of the mind map web, save the mindmap as a pdf or png to submit into Brightspace. Each of you will share your mind map on Peergrade for peer comments on September 24. Peer comments must be posted by September 28. The entire assignment is due on October 3.
About Mind Maps
What are Mind Maps? For those of you who are familiar with curriculum webbing, the concept will be familiar. Think of mind maps as webbing for adults that uses visual content to explore concepts.
Here are two videos that will introduce you to the concept of mind mapping:

courses found Coggle to be user-friendly, but you can use any mindmap software. You can even use Jamboard to design a mind map.
