Information for Educators
If you are a teacher looking for creative ways to motivate your class to research and write, we would LOVE to work with you!
We want to help you make literacy FUN as your students work on articles, projects, artwork and videos in your classroom that will be published online. Everyone is a published author on the website, and a few students from each grade will have their work featured in our digital monthly magazine. We look forward to working with you and sharing your students’ ideas and creations with the world!
We would love to hear stories from you as well! Send us a great project, writing prompt or activity that was a hit in your class (and fits one of our 4 environmental themes).
We know no two classrooms are alike, and you have your own unique style of teaching. That’s why we keep things flexible so you may decide how to use STEAM City Kids as a resource with your students. You may assign a class writing prompt or a project to go with one or all of our environmental themes (Solar Energy, Water Conservation, Climate Change and Sustainable Farming). You may choose only a few pieces or submit work from everyone in class. The online publication may be used as a incentive to help with classroom management.
