Each year we publish blogs and 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 2020.
First Book, in partnership with the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA), has created the 2020–2021 Diversity in STEM Calendar, a free tool designed to help educators bring amazing moments of innovation to life and showcase the incredible contributions of diverse STEM pioneers with children across the country.
Each November educators across the country teach their students about the First Thanksgiving, a quintessentially American holiday. The Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian has designed a poster to encourage teaching about Thanksgiving in a new way—one that recognizes the country’s original people.
Developed by Boston Children’s Museum, the League of Extraordinary Bloggers is part of The Freeman Foundation Asian Culture Exhibit Series, administered by the Association of Children’s Museums. In the game, a criminal mastermind known as the FOX has been stealing important cultural landmarks and objects all across China, Japan, South Korea, and Vietnam. Working together, students will learn about Asia and assemble clues from each country to track down this criminal mastermind.
