Resources for Crosscurricular Integration

Posted by Annie Whitehouse on 1/19/17 11:00 AM

We’ve talked a lot about multi-subject integration this month. Our January 11th EiEXchange session explored what makes integration between STEM subjects meaningful, and our January 31st webinar will explore integrating English language arts and engineering. If you’re interested in learning more about crosscurricular integration, we have a plethora of resources available on our website and in our blog. Here are a few resources to help you integrate engineering into other subject areas.

English Language Arts:




 And more:

  • Find more information about our downloadable extension lessons on the blog—there are extensions for every subject area we mentioned here, as well as art and social studies!
  • The Science Museum of Minnesota has created a handy set of integration ideas for six EiE units. They connect individual lessons to ELA, math, science, and social studies! Find the list at the bottom of this page (along with tons of useful teaching tips).
  • Our afterschool curricula, Engineering Adventures and Engineering Everywhere, have additional educator resource pages for each unit that include videos, articles, websites, and books that will help you make connections to all subject areas. Find them on each unit page under “Resources for This Unit.”

We’re always looking for new teacher tips! How do you integrate engineering and other subject areas in your classroom? If we use your tip on the blog, we’ll say thanks by sending you the EiE Teacher Guide of your choice.
