Physical Science: Solar Energy Build conceptual understanding of energy conversion

Share:
Item IN79614 Grade 4

Students explore energy conversion and design a passive solar house based on criteria and constraints. By using critical thinking, communication,

and collaboration to build a passive solar house, students prepare for essential skills of the 21st century. Students work through the Engineering Design Process – to learn the value of rethinking and support multiple solutions.

STEM in Action® modules are the easy-to-implement PreK-5 solution for integrating science, math, literacy, and engineering skills into real-world problems. These modules focus on the Engineering Design Practice which is a critical component of NGSS, state standards, and national initiatives. The materials are teacher friendly and all come in an easy to store box.
