Integrating Sustainable Development Goals into our Classrooms


Integrating 

Sustainable Development Goals 

into our Classrooms

The sustainable development goals were developed by the United Nations.  It's a blueprint for creating a better and more sustainable future for the whole world.  It's a great tool to think about instruction.

So I started with thinking about a real world problem.  Cooking is a problem in many cultures.  For hundreds of millions of people around the world who cook over fires fueled by wood or dung, and who walk miles to collect firewood or spend much of their meager incomes on fuel.

What might be a solution? Solar Cookers! Give your kids materials such as a box, foil, a skewer and a marshmallow. Have them create a solar cooker and have them time how long it takes to cook that marshmallow.

Introduce the idea of a parabola. How could that idea help in the construction? In this time of distance learning, I created a video for my students on our FB page. There I discussed the SDG's and integrated STEM with the solar cooker.

How could the SDG's be integrated into your teaching? If you're looking for STEM challenges, visit my TPT store.

Here are some more great blogs to read about teaching!
