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.

Magnetism: Level 1 is a two-week Elementary STEM Unit for Grades 3-5 in which students investigate the history of magnets. They discover what materials are attracted to magnets and learn about the uses of magnets. Students also design their own magnetic game.

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 Magnetism: Level 1 Contents resource for part numbers and quantities of included items.
