Children should begin learning about the role of structures in technology and engineering at an early age, and Grades K-2 Linking Literature to Structures is a perfect book for doing that. It highlights the T and E in STEM with five in-depth activities that guide students through the whole design process in projects such as mini golfing and building a tree house. Each design brief hits multiple standards and goals in one project. Items for these activities are cost conscious with many of them found readily around the house or classroom. In today’s classroom, flexibility is key, and the design challenges created here are easy to set up and can be adapted to your needs.
