My newest resource book series, Story Engineering: Problem-Solving Short Stories Using STEM, is now available!
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, and 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.
I loved creating these books because I got to write STORIES! I think my favorite stories are:
You can purchase the books through Teacher Created Resources, Amazon, or most educational resource supply outlets.
