    From Nature to Me engages young learners in hands-on inquiry and design as they explore biomimicry—one of the most important challenges of the twenty-first century—and learn how we can obtain from nature the tools necessary for scientific discovery. This Second Grade Building Block in the EbD-TEEMS Integrative-STEM Curricula for PreK–6 integrates concepts of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through the environmental context of learning about bees and researching why they seem to be disappearing. By utilizing an experiential approach, students collaboratively begin to explore how animals spread seeds and how their environment is then suitable for habitation. Following guided inquiry activities, a design challenge allows students to create a device that will travel on land or air to disperse seeds. Thus, they will be engineering the tools of scientific discovery.

    In this TEEMS Building Block, preschool students (ages 3-4) will be introduced to the life cycles of plants, butterflies, and frogs. They will use a multisensory approach as they plant and observe seed growth, experience hands-on lessons, enjoy literature, and share with teachers and students the circle of life.

    Our Water, Our World engages learners in hands-on inquiry and design as they explore one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century: universal access to clean water. This Fifth Grade Building Block in the EbD-TEEMS Integrative-STEM Curricula for PreK–6 integrates concepts of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through the environmental context of water resource management and conservation. Science and mathematics concepts that are reinforced include properties of water, the water cycle, the interaction of water and earth, fractions, measurement of volume, and the use of data. By utilizing an experiential approach, students collaboratively investigate global water issues and learn that stewardship and innovation can make a difference in solving the world's problems. Following guided inquiry activities and design challenges provides an opportunity for students to apply knowledge and skills in a meaningful way as they develop methods to conserve and reuse water.

    With the flip of switch a light comes on. But as our natural resources dwindle and the negative impact of the use of fossil fuels increases, the need to develop alternative energy sources that are both affordable and efficient becomes even more urgent. One of those alternative energy options is harnessing solar energy. While solar power is already available, there are still struggles in solar panel design. Affordability and lack of storage of the energy generated are two of the obstacles scientists and engineers are tackling today. In our unit, The Power of Solar, students will learn how to apply solar power to a practical need:to generate electricity for a model outdoor arcade game. Students will be able to apply futures thinking—design thinking—with the lessons in this unit, helping our students develop understanding to become engaged citizens.

    Natural Hazards engages young learners in hands-on inquiry and design as they explore natural hazards that occur on the Earth. This Third Grade Building Block in the EbD - TEEMS Integrative-STEM Curricula for PreK–6 integrates concepts of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through the environmental context of natural hazards. Science and mathematics concepts that are reinforced include multiple hands-on inquiry-based activities such as creating designs, exploring regions of the Earth, and analyzing weather data as students learn about weather and climate as well as the natural hazards that occur around the world. The final design challenge provides an opportunity for students to apply knowledge and skills in a meaningful way as they develop a design for a way to help people travel during a blizzard.

    Can You Hear Me? engages young learners in hands-on inquiry and design as they explore one of the greatest challenges of the twenty-first century: How we are able to hear and process sounds. This First Grade Building Block in the EbD-TEEMS Integrative-STEM Curricula for PreK–6 integrates concepts of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through the environmental context of noise pollution. Science and mathematics concepts that are reinforced include the history of the telephone, echolocation, vibrations, and counting beats of a rhythm. By utilizing an experiential approach, students collaboratively investigate the issue of noise pollution probably something that students don’t realize is a form of pollution. Following guided inquiry activities, a design challenge provides an opportunity for students to apply knowledge and skills in a meaningful way as they design and create something that creates a sound and also helps them detect sounds.
