Description

Elementary STEM Units include cross-curricular activities and experiments that teach concepts in math, science, technology, and language arts. In today’s classroom, flexibility is key, and these STEM Units were created to be easily set up and adaptable.

Compressed Air is a two-week Elementary STEM Unit for Grades 3-5 in which students work in teams of two to four to learn about compressed air. Students learn about elasticity and stored energy, and, for their challenge, they design and build a balloon rocket.

Each unit comes with a unit guide, teacher notes, scope and sequence, teacher’s guide, student pages, assessments, and all the materials needed for a class of 24 students.

Have a class of more than 24 students? No problem! Four-student add-on packages are available.
