229 Kid K''NEX pieces, including 36 wheels, 10 of which are ''super sized'' and 6 are truck wheels. Six two-sided, full color, building cards. Build all 9 models simultaneously from building cards. Set comes packed in a large storage tub with snap-on lid.
Bring STEM concepts to life with K''NEX® Education! The Real Bridge Building set is designed to assist students in their study of the history, function, structural design, geometry and strength of bridges. They will also investigate concepts related to the physical properties of materials and their application in the placement, design, and construction of bridges.
The Teacher''s Guide offers a wide choice of activities and extensive background information provided to assist you as you present the materials and answer student questions. Each lessons includes background Information, Student Objectives, Student Inquiry Sheets, Glossary of Key Terms, Journaling Opportunities, and Skill Builder Activities
Go green and bring STEM concepts to life with the K''NEX® Education Renewable 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.
The K''NEX® Roller Coaster Physics Set is designed to help students as they learn how to design and conduct scientific investigations, identify variables of the problem and select appropriate independent and dependent variables for investigations. They will determine the steps necessary to control a variable, observe and record the response, and interpret the results. They will measure, record, and analyze the data for patterns, construct scatter plots or histograms as a graphic representation of the data, and mathematically interpret those graphs
The Teacher''s Guide offers ideas, in the form of nine lab exercises, that outline ways in which students in grades 11 and 12 may use the set to study physics, and in particular mechanics. The studies adopt a hands-on, student-inquiry based approach in which the teacher is encouraged to develop each lab investigation using the 5E model (Engage, Explore, Explain, Extend, and Evaluate) of inquiry while students utilize the Four Question Strategy for experiment design.
