Students explore patterns of the Earth and the Sun to determine when and where shadows cover the park. Then, they design a park plan with warm, sunny benches. By using critical thinking, communication, and collaboration to create a park model, 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 a durable, easy-to-store, plastic tote.
STEM in Action is endorsed as Accomplished in the national STEMworks database.
