Teachers are now able to “pin” 2020 U.S. Census-related class activities and lesson plans from Statistics in Schools (SIS) on Pinterest
Classroom activities, lesson plans, and other materials on the 2020 Census from Statistics in Schools (SIS) — the official online educational program from the U.S. Census Bureau — are now able to be “pinned” on Pinterest! While teachers are now coming up with online lesson plans and digital agendas, parents are undergoing the same challenges as schools are not in session due to the recent spread of COVID-19. This program gives teachers and parents both another platform to educate all while keeping them both mentally stimulated and entertained.
With Pinterest, it’s easy for teachers and parents to “pin” lessons and activities for use in their homes or online classrooms now or saved for a later date without losing any pertinent information.
The U.S. Census Bureau revamped its Pinterest account last fall to include a wide range of pinned educational activities and boards from the SIS program. Recently added activities specifically designed for the 2019 / 2020 school year revolve around the 2020 Census, the impact it has on our country, and the importance of counting everyone — including children.
As detailed by the U.S. Census Bureau:
“Teachers and subject matter experts from across the country helped develop every SIS activity to make sure it is valuable, engaging, relatable and easy to use. There are pre-K-12 math, geography, sociology, English and history/social studies activities available… The materials target specific grade levels (pre-K, K-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8 and 9-12) and geographic locations – the 50 states, Puerto Rico and each of the Island Areas – to make it easier for educators to teach all students about the 2020 Census.”
