The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) focus on nonfiction and the skills necessary to produce and interpret it. InstaSTEM helps students master the CCSS!
The "Art of Science" motivates students to explore and discover.
InstaSTEM gets students outside where they explore and discover the natural world while creating photographs. Back in the classroom they research and write about their images, and share them on the class InstaSTEM website.
Students may use any kind of digital camera --cell phone cameras are great.
Students label their photographs and upload them to the class Instastem website.
Students learn the relationship between form and function as they study and research their images.
