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.

Kites in Air is a two-week Elementary STEM Unit for Grades 3-5 in which students work in teams of two to four to find out about kites, to participate in kite-based activities, and to learn research skills. Students will also stencil and create kite designs and make a kite.

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.
