Keep it simple with real STEM learning! Discover amazing engineering wonders through scientific exploration with colorful, engaging tools and hands-on activities and experiments. Introduce and explore all 6 simple machines as you make amazing discoveries, design solutions for real-world problems, and conduct your own investigations. Includes a lever board, wedge, pulley with rope and hook, cart with 4 removable wheels, Archimedes screw, 4 barrel weights, and 10 double-sided Activity Cards to build early engineering and problem solving skills. Comprehensive Activity Guide with reproducible materials is also included. Largest piece (cart) measures 5"L x 3½"W.
Children are never too young to benefit from STEM learning, and these activity sets from Learning Resources are a great, hands-on approach to scientific explorations. Designed for younger hands, each set contains 19-32 quality plastic pieces, 10 double-sided activity cards, and an activity guide with reproducible templates designed to help children understand the scientific process. Unlike traditional lab sheets, these provide longer fonts, ample writing or drawing space (no lines) for predictions, observations, and data collections. The heart of the instruction is found in the activity cards. Based on the scientific method, cards begin with a problem to solve, followed by a prediction (hypothesis), hands-on experiment and data collection before asking the child to draw a conclusion of their findings. An excellent introduction to STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics for elementary children. ~Deanne
