EbD-TEEMS™: Grade K: NxtGen (P258E)
A Home for All Seasons engages young learners in hands-on inquiry and design as they explore animal homes. The Kindergarten Building Block in the EbD - TEEMS Integrative-STEM Curricula for PreK–6 integrates concepts of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics as students create various animal homes. Science and mathematics concepts that are reinforced include the basic needs of organisms, the environment that organisms live in, numbers and quantities, measurement, and shapes. Following guided inquiry activities, a design challenge provides an opportunity for students to apply knowledge and skills in a meaningful way as they design and build a birdhouse.
