Integrate engineering and literacy into your curriculum with this innovative approach to learning. Students will read fictional passages and solve problems using STEM and the engineering design process. Students can create devices and solutions using everyday materials. Each unit focuses on one problem and one challenge, but other problems are presented as options for future challenges. The activity pages invite individual and group work with room for brainstorming, problem-solving, building, testing, and reflecting. Each book includes 11 (Grades 1–2) or 12 units (Grades 3–4 and Grades 5–6); each unit contains:
• A teacher overview and lesson plan
• One original fiction passage with room in margins for annotations
• STEM activity sheets based on a single STEM problem/challenge.
Each book is 112 pages.
