STEM Road Map Curriculum Series
Map out a journey that will steer your students toward authentic problem solving as you ground them in integrated STEM disciplines. This new K–12 curriculum series was developed to meet the growing need to infuse real-world learning into classrooms. The first five books in the series focus on the theme Innovation and Progress, delving into transportation, solar energy, wind energy, amusement parks, and construction materials.
Each book is an in-depth module that uses project- and problem-based learning. Your students are presented with a challenge, such as designing the amusement park of the future. Then, they apply what they learn to tasks such as conducting cost–benefit analyses and creating infomercials using science, social studies, English language arts, and mathematics.
The STEM Road Map Curriculum Series is anchored in the Next Generation Science Standards, the Common Core State Standards, and the Framework for 21st Century Learning. The various books cover all the STEM components as students journey through their K–12 science education. Engaging and flexible, each volume can be used as a whole unit or in part to meet the needs of districts, schools, and teachers who are charting a course toward an integrated STEM approach.
