Use play-based activities to support STEM learning

Teaching STEM Literacy is comprised of ready-made, open-ended lessons reviewed and tested by teachers, which help educators integrate STEM learning into the early childhood classroom. Lessons are linked to the Next Generation Science Standards, and encourage creative ideas for three-dimensional STEM learning that are developmentally appropriate and exemplified through children's literature.

The three-dimensional STEM learning—content, concepts, and practices—comes in twelve, ready-made open-ended teaching units that make it easy to teach science and inquiry to young children. This book uses the 5E framework (engagement, exploration, explanation, elaboration, and evaluation) to cultivate children's skills of observation, questioning, and data collection by combining discovery, problem solving, and engineering solutions to authentic questions that young children might ask.

Age focus: 3–8.

Review by: Alicia Conerly, Hazlehurst City School District - July 6, 2017
"Finally, a book that proves to be user friendly for educators, students, and parents! Teaching STEM Literacy is a masterpiece! Some personal high points include STEM Star, Dear Families letters, sample standards inclusion, and safety notes. With the implementation of this book whether at home or at school STEM literacy competence should increase significantly in ages 3 to 8."

"Teaching STEM Literacy is an essential resource for every early childhood educator. Texley and Ruud share classroom tested ideas and lessons that bring STEM concepts to life for young children.  Linking STEM concepts with children's literature is an excellent way to engage children and help them explore natural curiosities."
