Created in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution, these STEAM resources build literacy skills while fostering curiosity, creativity, and innovation! This kit uses real-world examples to give English language learners insight into how the engineering design process is used to solve real-world problems. The books feature dynamic images and text features that enhance the reading experience and build visual literacy and include STEAM career advice from Smithsonian employees working in STEAM fields.
Featuring high-interest topics based on Smithsonian content, each book includes a hands-on STEAM challenge that guides students through every step of the engineering design process and content that highlights every aspect of STEAM: science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics.
By becoming STEAM proficient, first grade students are prepared to answer complex questions, investigate global issues, and develop solutions for modern-day problems. This STEAM curriculum supports social and emotional learning (SEL) in the classroom and aligns to state and national college and career readiness standards including NGSS.
