Sept. 3, 2015 - PRLog -- Manufacturing Day/Month kicks starts this year on October 1 & 2 with statewide events planned for the entire month. In addition to “Made in Florida” industry tours, open houses, career fairs, expos and “American Made” movie screenings will be held across Florida as students, educators and Floridians across the state will be celebrating and learning about what’s “Made in Florida.” To support students and educators learning and engagement in manufacturing, FLATE has developed an extensive array of resources specifically designed for educators to use as part of the Manufacturing Day/Month celebrations. These comprehensive resources are lesson plans that provide a quick overview of “what is manufacturing,” and can be taught as a one-day lesson plan, or as in-depth, multii-day lessons that merge manufacturing-related technical content with the language skills of common core. There is even a 2015 Manufacturing Day in Florida poster that teachers can use as a curriculum tool and/or to decorate their classroom. To access these resources, visit the FLATE’s Wiki at:http://flate.pbworks.com/w/page/10889505/FrontPage andhttp://madeinflorida.org/manufacturing-day

The Manufacturing Day/Month Educator toolkit is geared to help educators spark students’ interest/ awareness about high-tech, high-skilled, high-paying jobs in manufacturing. Some of the resources in the FLATE educator toolkit includes:
