K-2 Curriculum Connects Social and Academic Competencies
Supplement core learning in your classroom with our whole-class, hands-on STEM Units, which enable lower-elementary students to make connections among the four areas of STEM. Each two-, three-, or four-week unit incorporates science, technology, engineering, and math concepts while also encouraging students to practice important social skills throughout the activities. Students work in teams to brainstorm and solve problems, beginning to develop those transferable future-ready skills necessary in college and careers and creating an awe for hands-on exploration at an early age.
Designed to offer optimum flexibility, the STEM Units can be incorporated in support of existing curriculum. Units can be implemented individually or grouped into two themes: Structures and Air. Unit materials and activities are designed to be easy to implement, use, and store.
- Connects math and science knowledge with real-world STEM applications
- Develops student confidence in their design and idea-generation abilities
- Prepares students for more independent thinking needed in upper elementary
- Can be implemented in a variety of ways, offering maximum flexibility for teachers
Teachers are provided with everything they need to implement the units, including curriculum resources and materials to complete the hands-on activities.
