Engage your child in fun hands-on projects that develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills. The STEM challenges and activities encourage your child to think creatively and explore different ideas to solve problems. Parents act as facilitators, guiding their children through the problem-solving process. Each unit includes stories and practice pages that help children understand science concepts and provide a foundation for completing each STEM challenge. A STEM journal activity helps guide children through the engineering design process: plan, create, test, and record. Topics within each STEM challenge target earth, life, and physical science. Each unit covers a specific scientific concept and includes: Science Story: Introduces each science concept Practice Activities: Support children's understanding STEM Story: Fictional story with a problem to solve STEM Challenge: Hands-on activity to solve a problem STEM Journal: Provides a planning outline to help complete the challenge activity Includes answer key. Kindergarten STEM skills include: Comparisons Letter formation Fine motor skills Cause and effect Visual discrimination Sequencing Inference Kindergarten activities incorporate these scientific concepts: Physical science Shapes, Sizes, and More Solids and Liquids Does the Magnet Stick? Wheels Do the Work Life science What Plants Need What Animals Need Plant Parts Living Things People Grow and Change Earth science Bodies of Water Seasons Rocks Use Smart Start: STEM for enrichment at home and help your child develop lifelong critical thinking skills.

"What if you could challenge your kindergartners to create a mini roller coaster? Physics in Motion turns a fun building project into an opportunity to investigate concepts such as energy, gravity, friction, and speed. Students will use the engineering design process while working collaboratively to design, build, and test marble track roller coasters. They will measure, compare, and evaluate numbers related to their project. They'll use technology to do research and demonstrate their awareness of motion-related concepts. They'll even craft a plan for making the roller coaster part of a theme park and then create a flyer to advertise it. The module is an entry point for students to explore the physics of motion through play and then decide which roller coaster design is best"--
