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.

Exploring Air is a two-week Elementary STEM Unit for Grades K-2 in which students work in teams of two to four to study the importance of air to all living things. Experiments include fundamental studies in gravity and lift. Students make drawings from what they observe in nature and make a whirly flyer that will hover like a seed on the air.

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.

See the Exploring Air Contents resource for part numbers and quantities of included items.
