Looking for ways to better engage your students? This workshop begins with a rationale for the study of survival techniques and how to teach them in the classroom. This is followed by a discussion about implementing STEAM units with integrity and addressing 21st Century Skills. Next, participants will apply these concepts to two survival scenarios: weather-related emergencies and surviving in the outdoors. The weather-related emergency unit presents concepts and activities, such as discovering the science behind the phenomena, building emergency kits, discussing procedures for use during a thunderstorm, and much more. The outdoor survival scenario includes accessing clean water, building a shelter, finding food, getting help, and administering basic first aid. Throughout both scenarios, participants will learn ways to connect STEAM units to literature, art, and the humanities. This is a fun and thought-provoking workshop guaranteed to provide ways to grab students’ attention.
