Umpqua Valley STEAM Hub

Lesson Plans and Resources

The Umpqua Valley STEAM Hub provides services to all educators in Douglas County. "Engaging students early in STEAM-related classroom activities and out-of-school workshops" is one of the major goals of the initiative. The following lessons were created by local educators and best attempts were made to align the activities with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). 

The Lending Library Lessons involve materials that are available for checkout from the STEAM Hub's lending library.

Distance Learning Lessons include an overview with a list of low cost materials. Each grade level contains the overview and five accompanying lessons. These activities can also easily applied in the classroom. The lessons cover many of the NGSS standards but not all for that specific grade level.

The Overviews and Resources at the bottom of this page gives descriptions by type of item in the Lending Library

Five Classroom Lessons each for grades 1-5 with an overview outlining all the materials and resources needed to implement all five.
