This Hands-On STEAM series is aligned to the STEAM initiatives and Next Generation Science Standards. Begin the journey with Physical Science by making a compound machine with your classmates. Experience static electricity first hand by getting a balloon to magically stick to a wall. Move on to Life Science by designing your own food chain while learning about producers, consumers and decomposers. Get a firsthand look at ecosystems by building your own terrarium. Then, explore Earth & Space Science by tracking the movement of the Moon with your own Lunar Calendar. Get into groups to make your own solar cell, windmill, or water wheel. Each concept is paired with hands-on experiments and comprehension activities to ensure your students are engaged and fully understand the concepts. Reading passages, graphic organizers, before you read and assessment activities are included.
