Create a STEAM lesson in 6 minutes

By |2018-02-18T12:27:32+00:00December 9th, 2014|

We all feel it. The craziness of the season has officially taken over our classrooms and schools.  No one is immune! Between the seasonal performances and presentations, the elf-on-a-shelf giddiness from our students and our own holiday shopping, our time is at a premium.  Who has the minutes to plan a new and integrated STEAM lesson?

You do!

Today, I’m going to show you how to create a full 45-minute STEAM lesson in just 6 minutes using Buncee.  This is a fantastic designing and presentation tool anyone can use.  They even have a dedicated area for educators. Here, you can upload your classes and students, create interactive assignments, or share presentations.  You can use this for flipped lessons, individual centers, or as a whole-class.  Plus, it’s so easy to use that students each have their own account, and use it to create their own presentations.

In the video below, I’m sharing with you the steps I used to create THIS interactive STEAM lesson on the art and science of snow. Feel free to create your own, with different art prints, music, interactive modules or science collections in just 6 minutes using the steps I share below.  Or, you can just use the original template that I created.  Either way, you’ll have a fantastic new STEAM lesson that takes minimal time to plan.

Win!

 

PS – Buncee is a sponsor of our winter online STEAM conference and this is a preview of the kinds of make-and-take sessions we’ll be offering.  If you haven’t signed up yet, we’d love to have you join us!

    Hello Susan-

    Thank you for your video on Buncee-Snowflake design. I would like to try this lesson, but I had a couple question before I got started. I am a traveling Art Teacher, and I would like to do this with a group of 6th graders. The school has access to ChromeBooks, so I wondering if this would work. Also, if I just use the free buncee site will this allow all my students to participate in the activity or should I make it a partner activity. I appreciate any feedback.

    Thank you for your time!

      Yep! Buncee is completely web-based, so it will work on Chromebooks. Also, the free site will definitely allow all your students to participate. You could certainly make it a partner/group activity if you’d like, but I like the idea of using this as an individual activity since the projects will be as unique as the students and snowflakes they design.

    Thank you for the quick feedback! I am just about to finish up my first Buncee, but I have come across a couple problems. The buncee website has updated since your video, so it looks a little different. I cannot find the edu resources app/widget? When you get the chance could you possibly guide me?

    I was just looking at this resource and exploring Buncee alongside and could not find the “edu” resource link. The layout looks quite different than your screen. Have they discontinued this component?
