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 Heated Air is a two-week Elementary STEM Unit for Grades K-2 in which students work in teams of two to four to explore how the Sun works. Students study heat sources such as living creatures and friction, and they create and launch their own hot-air balloons.
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.
