STEM to STEAM: A Holistic Approach to Learning in K-12 Physical Education

This webinar demonstrates how to integrate interdisciplinary activities, such as science, technology, engineering, art, and math, with physical education. Included are lessons, rubrics, and assessments guiding students through fun, developmentally appropriate, hands-on physical activities designed to help them find answers to a driving question using a holistic (affective, psychomotor, cognitive) approach. By the end of this webinar, you will have an understanding as to how STEM/STEAM can lead to deeper learning, and movement activities that can be put into practice immediately.
