Great value building set contains 1,313 K'NEX Rods and Connectors, 1 spring motor and a power pack motor. Two instruction books to build 80 models, including 8 dynamic motorized creations. Supports up to 12 students building simultaneously in teams of 2-3
Hands-on learning at it best! The K'NEX® Education Intro to Simple Machines: Levers & Pulleys set is designed to introduce students to the scientific concepts associated with two types of Simple Machines – levers and pulleys. Students are provided with the opportunity to acquire skills using a hands-on, inquiry-based approach to information and concepts. Working cooperatively, students are encouraged to interact with each other 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 that can be used 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
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
Hands-On Learning! The K'NEX® Education Exploring Machines 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.
Off to the races with K'NEX® Education! The K'NEX® Education Forces, Energy & Motion 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 12-16 students working in teams of 3-4.
142 pieces and instructions to build 38 models. Students can construct squares, triangles, quadrilaterals, rhombi, prisms, fractions; plus investigate symmetry. Thirteen challenges included to fine-tune the understanding of shape characteristics and attributes. Set supports 3-4 students working as a team in grades 1-3. Comes packaged in a strong plastic storage case with transparent locking lid. Teacher's Guide included
Shapes, Lines, Segments & Rays, Angles, Congruence, Sides, Faces, Polygons, 2D and 3D Geometric Shapes, Symmetry, Fractions.
Set includes 142 K'NEX parts and a 16-page instruction booklet to build 44 models. This set can support 3-4 students working as a team. It comes packaged in a strong plastic storage case with a transparent locking lid. 44-page Teacher's Guide, with vocabulary cards, sold separately.
The K'NEX® Education Amusement Park Experience Set provides an opportunity to combine real-world applications with STEM concepts in a middle school classroom environment. Using these materials, students will be engaged and energized as they experience the interrelationships and further their knowledge and understanding of the science, technology, engineering and math concepts associated with such rides and structures.
The Teacher's Guide offers a teaching approach that challenges students to take an active role in constructing their own knowledge by engaging in hands-on, inquiry-based learning, and by interacting and collaborating with other students while discussing ideas and concepts, informs the activities associated with the K'NEX® Education Amusement Park set.
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.
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.
