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.
Parachutes in Air is a three-week Elementary STEM Unit for Grades 3-5 in which students work in teams of two to four to learn about parachutes. Students learn about the force of gravity and, for their challenge, they design and make a parachute.
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.
Have a class of more than 24 students? No problem! Four-student add-on packages are available.
