PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This integrated package contains worksheets and activities suitable for a multi-day STEM lesson for 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th graders. Students will use engineering principles of research, design, feedback loops and reflection, cost and materials analysis as well as reading, writing, math, speaking and listening.

Students can do the activities individually or as teams.

I used this with second graders over the summer in a STEM “academy”, but created updated sheets based on what “we” experienced and on wanting to provide materials for older grades. I hope you like it!
