STEM in Action® Shrinking Shore Exploration

Earth Science: Water & Erosion Build understanding of how forces change the shape of the land

Students explore the power of ocean waves and come up with a model to protect the beach from erosion. By using critical thinking, communication, and collaboration to protect a model beach from erosion, students prepare for essential skills of the 21st century. Students work through the Engineering Design Process – to learn the value of rethinking and supporting 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.

STEM in Action is endorsed as Accomplished in the national STEMworks database.
