PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Is your elementary school starting the Engineering Design Process? Does thinking about STEM make you want to pull your hair out? Do you feel confused about what STEM looks like in an elementary classroom setting? If so, this free STEM starter kit is for you! The packet includes everything I wish I had known about STEM when my school started implementing STEM in 2011. I hope it is helpful to you! I am in the process of going through all of the STEM activities I created over the past couple of years. If you are interested in seeing more STEM design briefs, click the red "follow me" next to my store name and you will be updated on when new products are posted.

I would love to hear what you think about this kit! Also, if you have any ideas or request for STEM lesson plans (design briefs) please leave them in the feedback or email me at ivy@soaringto1stgrade.com.

key words: STEM, Science Technology Engineering Mathematics, open ended projects, elementary STEM lessons, elementary STEM design briefs, starting STEM, STEM tips for teachers

I am the STEM facilitator for my school. This is the first year we have implemented STEM, so needless to say I have my hands full. One of my responsibilities is guiding classroom teacher to implement STEM outside of my assigned instructional time. I am really excited to share this resource with them! Thank you for creating this resource!
On  November 17, 2013Ivy Taul answered:
Thanks for taking the time to leave feedback! STEM is so much fun, but a huge undertaking to fully understand. I'm so glad this packet will be helpful to your school's process. My email is ivy@soaringto1stgrade.com if you have any suggestions on making the packet better! :)

Your feedback totally made my day! :):):) Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment. STEM is so much fun! Although, most teachers don't receive training or the training is minimal which means new programs can be super overwhelming and stressful. I'm so glad this is helpful to you. Get ready for lots of fun on your STEM journey
