Welcome to STEAM!
SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, ART & MATH
The students are learning about how to write a Pantoum in Language Arts class. Each student was required to write a poem in a Pantoum style that describes a haunted house. This STEAM lesson helped the students develop the visual representation of the haunted house to make it easier for them to create a visually descriptive poem. We also discussed with the students the meaning of the phrase, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” This encouraged them to make creative art and poetry that will only help enhance their future work.
Take a look at the results.
The students are learning about what a ratio is in Math class. This STEAM lesson had the students create their own colors using ratios. They were given paint droppers to help assist them in measuring out the paint properly. Each student had to create and name their specific color that they created. For example, they mixed (2) drops of red paint with (4) drops of white paint and (3) drops of yellow paint. Their ratio is 2:4:3 with 9 overall parts that created the color Summer Tangerine. These newly invented colors were then used to paint an abstract piece showing the specific parts of their ratios.

The 6th grade students read The Tell Tale Heart in language arts. This STEAM lesson had the students work together to create a painting based on the famous artwork The Scream. They were instructed to use the painting to tell how the character in the story was caught for his crimes. Once the painting was complete each student was required to write an essay detailing the events. Take a look at the results.
