Evan-Moor Smart Start STEM Grade 1
Engage your child in fun hands-on projects that develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills. 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) so they can complete the challenge. Topics within each STEM challenge target earth, life, and physical science. As children complete the units, they will be developing skills such as connecting words and pictures; fine motor, letter formation; visual discrimination; word meaning; sequencing; inference and comprehension. 128 pages.
