Real-Life Challenges Help Small Groups Explore The Effects Of Sunlight
Explore concepts related to sunlight with this engaging kit containing everything you need to lead four cooperative groups through three hands-on engineering challenges. Students will use what they have learned about the warming effects of the sun to build a shelter for penguins, an umbrella for a group of penguins, and an umbrella for a single penguin. Reviewed and approved by certified STEM instructional coaches, the kit also includes extension activities that support all the components of STEM.

In the U.S alone, nearly 30% of educational standards are overhauled, revised or edited each year. Tracking these changes demands the full-time expertise and we have the tool to manage those standards, so you can trust us as the leader in standards alignment. Correlations are made for all State, National, and Common Core Standards. In addition, we have Head Start standards for early childhood. And most recently, we’ve added both National STEM Standards and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).Learn More
