Stepping Into STEM
STEM is the buzzword in education today, and this series is intended to help teachers and
Co-ops incorporate the NexGen Standards into their class. Project-based learning shows students how science, technology, engineering, and math can work together for a better understanding.
Each unit in the books includes hands-on activities that introduce the 4 I's inquiry, investigation, interaction, and invention. The activities promote team work and discussion and journaling for each activity. Background information for the concept of each unit, guided activities, and rounds out with an independent group project is provided.
Each book is 160 pages and is reproducible for classroom or a single family. If you are concerned about the standards that are met by this series, there is a list found in the back of each book. There is no answer key since these are open-ended activities.
If you have younger students and want the same opportunity to incorporate STEM, take a look at Year Round Project-based activities for STEM by the same publisher. ~ Donna
