MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection
The Minnesota Science Teachers Education Project was a statewide professional development program for teachers of science presented by Hamline University's Graduate School of Education through its Center for Global Environmental Education. MnSTEP offered no-cost, grade-appropriate, standards-based summer science workshops for Minnesota K-12 science teachers. Topics included Earth Science, Biology/Environmental Science, Chemistry, Physics, and Inquiry and Assessment.
The activities in this online collection are submissions written by teachers who participated in one of these summer workshops on science content and pedagogy. The activities reflect individual integration plans for applying newfound content knowledge and inquiry strategies directly in classroom curriculum and practice.
