FirstieSTEM Curriculum Bundle
Please note that these units are the same as k, but re-branded with the "Firstie" logo! All K and 1 NGSS standards are covered! When need be the 1st grade units will differentiate to accommodate their skill levels, but skill focuses will be the same as kinder! * *
Thanks so much for viewing my FirstieSTEM Curriculum units bundled. FirstieSTEM Curriculum is an engaging STEM curriculum with young learners in mind! FirstieSTEM is standards-based and encourages young learners to think “outside the box” and prove their thinking through hands-on and engaging learning experiences.
What Units Are Included in FirstieSTEM
FirstieSTEM is based upon five units; Motion and Gravity, Rocks and Soil, Changes in Water, Plant/Animal Needs, and States of Matter. Each unit is broken down into six-ten lessons. ** However, please note that each lesson can take several academic days to complete. Basically, each unit would be for that quarter of the school year! Or, if you have additional Science/Social Studies curriculum you could fill the remainder of the quarter with that! Each lesson has the standards covered, materials list, lesson vocabulary, STEM design loop integration, detailed activity lesson plans, and all necessary student recording sheets.
The units also includes “action” photos, vocabulary cards, parent unit overview letter, parent involvement request slips, STEM design loop, and all other necessary supplies. The lessons will at times suggest the integration of online book sources and online video databases to engage the learners into the unit topic. Please note that all student response sheets can be shrunk and placed into a student STEM journal. You can also choose to have students track their daily STEM activities in their STEM journal with or without the included response sheets.
