K'NEX® Rods and Connectors and the included teacher's guide allow you to easily and effectively offer students a program of study that uses hands-on exploration in conjunction with an engaging inquiry-based approach to learning. Students work cooperatively and are encouraged to interact with each other as they build, investigate, discuss and evaluate mathematical concepts, ideas and models.
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® Education Energy, Motion & Aeronautics allows students to investigate a variety of concepts related to Newton's Laws and aeronautics. These concepts include aeronautics as it applies to force and motion as well as the effects on individuals who work and live in space. Concepts and activities are fashioned around rigorous content and National Standards in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education.
The teacher's guide follows a modified version of the 5E instructional model – Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, and Evaluate. Students will use the Scientific Inquiry and the Engineering Design Processes extensively throughout the lessons as they explore, create, invent, and innovate. Lessons include worksheets, key terms, design briefs, design challenges, research and design logs, and rubrics.
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.
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.
Enough pieces for 6-8 children.

The K'NEX DNA, Replication and Transcription set is designed to aid in teaching the structure and function of the nucleic acid molecules that make up DNA (deoxyribonucleic acids) and RNA (ribonucleic acids).
Excellent demonstration tool at the elementary school level. Curriculum aligned to National Science Education standards for grades 5 – 12.
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.
