This 16 page unit plan based on national science standards is a a fully integrated STEM Unit with a focus on inspiring upper elementary students to consider careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. It engages students in real-world inquiry based simulations that challenge them to build a variety of complete circuits as they take on various roles in a Christmas Tree Lights factory. This unit is developed around the 5 E's lesson plan model: engagement, exploration, explanation, elaboration, and evaluation. The details in this unit make it easy for anyone to implement and leaves your students begging for more. Complete unit gives detailed directions for implementation of the simulation, provides solutions for classrooms teaching without science kits, includes a cover page for the student journals/notebooks, and much more.
