STEAM Books for Teaching/Homeschooling Kids
Adding science to your at-home schedule will make a positive impact on your child’s learning.
Just one experiment a week will help build children’s confidence and excitement about the sciences, boost success in the classroom, and give them the tools to design and execute their own science fair projects.
Use hands-on, open-ended STEMS projects to:
* Take advantage of children’s natural curiosity
* Incorporate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) concepts into your existing curriculum
* Develop creativity, collaboration, and problem solving important 21st Century Skills
* Establish real-world connections for classroom learning
* Differentiate projects according to your students needs
Projects and experiments to inspire and challenge your kids!
With easy-to-understand examples, problem-solving tips, and hands-on projects your family can create together, this guide gives you the tools you need to help your kids excel and foster a lifetime love of learning.
The STEM fields (science, technology, engineering, and math) are top education priorities in the United States — and they are growing fields with a high demand for jobs.
Hands-on projects to get kids ages 5 to 10 excited about science!
As kids grow older, they become more curious about the world around them, often asking, “How does this work?”
Awesome Science Experiments for Kids teaches young brains the nuts and bolts of the scientific method using fun, hands-on experiments designed to show kids how to hypothesize, experiment, and then record their findings.
LEGO Chain Reactions is packed full of ideas, instructions, and inspiration for 10 LEGO machines that spin, swing, pivot, roll, lift, and drop.
Each machine alone is awesome, but put them together and you get incredible chain reactions.
Then, combine the machines in any order you like to create your own chain reactions.
LEGO’s team of experts worked with educators and 11-year-olds to invent the machines, then wrote a book that teaches the skills (and some of the physics behind the fun) kids need to create their own amazing chain reaction machines.
Spark creativity and curiosity with fun engineering activities for kids ages 5 to 10.
Watch your child’s eyes light up as they get excited about engineering, learn how things work, and have tons of fun.
Awesome Engineering Activities for Kids is packed with more than 50 fascinating STEAM exercises, complete with step-by-step instructions, colorful pictures, and simple explanations of why the experiments work.
Want to know how to implement authentic STEM teaching and learning into your classroom?
STEM Lesson Essentials provides all the tools and strategies you’ll need to design integrated, interdisciplinary STEM lessons and units that are relevant and exciting to your students.
With clear definitions of both STEM and STEM literacy, the authors argue that STEM in itself is not a curriculum, but rather a way of organizing and delivering instruction by weaving the four disciplines together in intentional ways.
Rather than adding two new subjects to the curriculum, the engineering and technology practices can instead be blended into existing math and science lessons in ways that engage students and help them master 21st century skills.
Chemistry for kids can be so much fun! Real Chemistry Experiments has 40 exciting and engaging experiments with a real-life STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) connection for kids.
Become a better problem-solver, inventor, and innovator with these fascinating chemistry experiments. Each one has a clear purpose or question that’s being asked, step-by-step instructions, a list of materials you’ll need, questions to help you record your observations, and more. By the time you’re through, you’ll have chemistry for kids down to a science!
Can students as young as kindergarten through second grade really be engineers? You bet!
Present your class with the exciting challenges in this book, all built to fold right into your current curriculum and tie to your themes and your calendar.
Introduce students to Sandi’s simple five-step engineering design process.
Then, as you guide them with simple questions, watch your budding engineers delight in designing their own unique drums and sailboats, kites and umbrellas, and so much more.
