I highly recommend picture perfect science, but I'm not sure about Spanish.

What are some ways you have successfully integrated STEM into other content areas such as music, ELA, or social studies?

Newton's laws were applied in scenarios. It was not easy, but the simulations helped!

I appreciated the content layout, but the final assessment is difficult. I agree with some of the previous posters. There are some trick questions, and trying to go back to learn the material again, I find it difficult to locate the content used to create the assessment. Plus, not knowing exactly which ones were missed and why, I'm unsure about what material I have mastered.

5 mealworms
I love working with mealworms to help students understand more about invertebrates, arthropods, insects, life cycles, habitats, behaviors, inheritance, and more. Now I have text to support these explorations!
