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.
STEM AT ITS BEST! Bring the excitement of hands-on learning to your next simple machines unit. As part of a series, the K'NEX Education Intro to Simple Machines: Wheels & Axles and Inclined Planes set is designed to introduce students to the scientific concepts associated with two types of Simple Machines - wheels and axles, and inclined planes. Students build, investigate, and evaluate scientific principles in action. The Teacher's Guide, used in conjunction with the K'NEX materials and individual Student Journals, provides the information and resources needed to build students' understanding of scientific concepts and channel their inquiries into active and meaningful learning experiences.
Sprocket Gears! Spur Gears! Rack & Pinion! And More! The K'NEX® Education Gears set is designed to introduce students to the scientific concepts associated with gears. Students are provided with the opportunity to acquire skills using a hands-on, inquiry-based approach to information and concepts as they build, investigate, discuss, and evaluate scientific principles in action. The Teacher's Guide provides the information and resources needed to build students' understanding of scientific concepts and channel their inquiries into active and meaningful learning experiences. Extension activities to explore the concepts more deeply are also included.
No more toothpicks and glue! The K'NEX® Education Intro to Structures: Bridges set is designed to introduce students to the history, function, structural design, geometry and strength of bridges while providing opportunities for them to acquire skills using a hands-on, inquiry-based approach to information and concepts. The Teacher's Guide provides the information and resources required to build your students' understanding of scientific, technical and design concepts and to channel their inquiries into active and meaningful learning experiences

Big, soft, chunky pieces can be used by children with varying manipulative skills. Build 8 models from 1:1 correspondence cards or create your own creatures using the 131 parts, including 10 eyes and 2 ears/wings. Benefits: Enough pieces for 6-8 children. Packaged in a sturdy tub with snap-on lid. Young hands can build in any direction due to the flexibility of the system. Models are easily assembled, stay together during play, and can be quickly dismantled. Vibrant colors and hypnotic eye pieces appeal to both boys and girls. Developed to be consistent with NAEYC's Developmentally Appropriate Practices
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.
