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 Flight is a two-week Elementary STEM Unit for Grades K-2 in which students work in teams of two to four to take a look at why and how birds can fly. Hands-on experiments include building basic and advanced paper gliders. Students also learn how to build and fly a balsa wood glider.

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 Flight Contents resource for part numbers and quantities of included items.
