Each month we publish blogs and several newsletters full of digital learning, funding, professional growth, social media, and STEM resources. Below are items from our blogs and newsletters that educators turned to the most in April.

The K—3 STEM Foundations Project created a collection of NGSS-aligned curriculum units to help foster STEM education for early elementary students. Their free, comprehensive lesson plans connect science with reading and language arts.

Nicholas Provenzano, educator and author of the Nerdy Teacher blog, describes how project-based learning presents an opportunity to offer unique perspectives to students in this blog post. He explains the five key components of a successful project-based learning lesson.

In this immersive AR app, students collect letters of the alphabet floating over their environment to find and solve word puzzles. The interactive game gets students moving while enhancing vocabulary and language skills.

In Variant: Limits, an immersive game by Triseum, students learn about calculus concepts by saving the planet from geomagnetic storms. The game monitors player progress and provides feedback to ensure students understand the math behind the narrative.

Jessica Gonzalez, author of the popular Cult of Pedagogy blog, taps three experienced educators of English learners to create a list of resources and strategies that help support ESL/ELL students in the mainstream classroom.
