Develop your first grade students' problem-solving, critical thinking, innovation, communication, and peer collaboration skills with Evan-Moor's STEM Lessons and Challenges!

Every unit is focused on a hands-on challenge and guides students to work together as engineers to design, prototype, test, and refine their creations. The 15 grade-appropriate challenges target life, earth, and physical science concepts. Examples of STEM challenges and science topics from grade 2 include:

• Marble Roller Coaster (Physical Science Concept: Force and Motion)
• Natural Homes (Earth Science Concept: Natural Homes)
• Insect Catcher (Life Science Concept: Studying Insects)

Units are easy-to-teach and include everything you need to guide your students in completing the hands-on challenge, including:

• Teacher overview pages that feature tips and directions for preparing students to complete a STEM challenge, as well as a materials list that suggests readily available items to gather.
• Reading selections for background knowledge.
• Visual literacy page with real-world images relevant to the STEM challenge.
• A STEM challenge overview that introduces the specific task and goal of each challenge and provides space for students to brainstorm.
• Design process worksheets that guide students to plan, create, test, and evaluate their creation.
• A redesign worksheet to guide students through each step of the design process and provides space to document plans, materials, results, evaluations, and revisions.

128 classroom-reproducible pages, paperback. An answer key is not included, since there isn't one correct answer or solution to solve the problem or complete the challenge.
