Welcome to STEM For Young Learners: NOODLES. Designed for teachers, students and parents, these STEM lessons integrate Science, Technology, Engineering and Math for grades K – 2. Using food-themed lessons as a springboard and the maker movement for inspiration, students develop higher-order thinking, problem-solving and communication skills. Incorporated into the noodle theme is constructing a noodle skeleton for a science project, composing a noodle poem using technology, engineering a small structure to house a doll or stuffed toy and using noodles as non-standard measuring units in math. Use these lessons and creative ideas all through the year.
