Go green and bring STEM concepts to life with the K'NEX Exploring Wind & Water Energy Set! Designed to address critical science, technology and engineering concepts in the middle school classroom and provide instructional models that will enhance students' understanding of these important concepts.Using K'NEX and the lessons provided in the teacher guide enables you to offer students a program of study that uses hands-on exploration in conjunction with an engaging inquiry-based approach to learning. As students work cooperatively they are encouraged to work together as they build, investigate, discuss and evaluate concepts, ideas and designs.
Off to the races with K'NEX® Education! The K'NEX® Forces and Newton's Laws Building Set has been designed for students to investigate a variety of concepts related to forces, energy, and motion. These concepts are fashioned around rigorous STEM content and national standards in science, technology, engineering and math. As students engage in the activities, they will be learning, practicing, and applying integrated process skills. Students will be expected to craft fair test procedures, create meaningful data displays, make reasonable and data supported reports, and analyze their collected data in light of the problem at hand. These are just some of the process skills that students must employ as they use the K'NEX® Education Forces, Energy, and Motion Set. plans. Supports 1-2 students.
Go green and bring STEM concepts to life with the K'NEX® Investigating Solar Energy Set! Learn how to harness the energy of the sun into electricity to power K'NEX models. Builds three models and Includes 128 K'NEX parts, solar panel and motor. Building instructions and teacher's guide aligned to National STEM Standards included. Teacher guide provides a program of study that uses hands-on exploration in conjunction with an engaging inquiry-based approach to learning. Students are encouraged to build, investigate, and evaluate concepts, ideas and designs. Explore other Renewable Energy Sources with the Exploring Wind and Water Set or the Renewable Energy class set.
Hands-On Learning! The K'NEX® Education Simple and Compound Machines Building Set is designed to expand upon middle school student's knowledge of simple machines concepts. Students investigate, explore and experiment with the K'NEX® simple machine models as they analyze, synthesize, and evaluate information. The Teacher's guide includes Student Inquiry Sheets and Worksheets for the models highlighted. Student Worksheets ask questions about the machine being investigated and present challenges that can be used to help students think more deeply about the concepts involved.
