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 easy to set up and adaptable.

Magnetism: Level 2 is a two-week Elementary STEM Unit for Grades 3-5 in which students find out about magnetic poles and magnetic fields. Students learn how a compass and an electromagnet work and design their own compass and electromagnet.

This 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.
