National Science Digital Library--Materials for STEM Grades K-12!

Common core embraces S.T.E.M (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics).  If students are to be fully prepared to compete equally on a global scale in a world increasingly dominated by technology, they will need to be actively engaged in exciting science projects at every grade level.  Within such a learning environment, teachers will be able to plant and nurture that innate curiosity even the youngest have when they enter school.  This desire to explore will now be built upon and expanded throughout those 12 years of school.  Not all will enter careers in science, but using this approach, all students will truly have an option to seriously consider it.

The National Science Digital Library NSDL has incredible resources which can easily be incorporated into any lesson in science or math.  To get started, take a look at the STRAND MAPS.  Here all the content is clearly laid out along with videos on HOW TO USE the literacy maps.  Further, if teacher prefer text versions in lieu of hyperlinks, they can take advantage of the text component.

Another great feature of the site is that its COLLECTIONS section provides teachers with an extensive list of every organization that has contributed to the collection.

Your students will be amazed at the contents:)
