  1. Novel Engineering, K–8: An Integrated Approach to Engineering and Literacy

    Novel engineering, K–8 shows how your students can work through engineering design challenges inspired by a broad range of literature – novels and short stories, biographies and histories, or even picture books. By way of introduction, the book offers clear conceptual background and practical advice on how the approach works: Your students pull information from literature to identify a problem. Then, using details from the story or text, they go through an engineering design process to develop functional solutions for their ‘clients’ – the book’s characters. To support your efforts and bring the concept to life, the book gives you five in-depth case studies featuring the use of novels, a biography and a nonfiction historical text.

  2. Science in a Garden: Activities and Projects for the Outdoor Classroom, Years F–6

    Permaculture expert and educator Ross Mars is back with another collection of hands-on projects and investigations that provide students with opportunities to observe, understand and contribute to a thriving garden ecosystem. Students will follow the journey from theory to final product through the book’s six parts: understanding science in the garden, growth in the garden, changes in the garden, animals in the garden, human use of the garden and products from the garden. Each activity is aligned to the Australian Curriculum: Science and the Australian Curriculum: Technologies as well as the cross-curriculum priority of sustainability. Plus, teachers can use the handy index of curriculum links to assist with their planning.

  3. The Changing Earth: STEM Road Map for Middle School, Grade 8

    The changing earth outlines a journey that will steer your students towards authentic problem-solving while grounding them in integrated STEM disciplines. Like the other volumes in the series, this book is designed to meet the growing need to infuse real-world learning into F–12 classrooms. This interdisciplinary, six-lesson module uses project- and problem-based learning to introduce the powerful idea that Earth is shaped by ongoing geologic processes that can alter our landscape in a short time. The module also helps students appreciate the nature and process of science, including the roles of evidence, conjecture and modelling. Students will learn about the rock cycle, including how its driven by the Sun’s energy and heat from Earth’s core.

  4. Human Impacts on Our Climate: STEM Road Map for Middle School, Grade 6

    Human impacts on our climate outlines a journey that will steer your students toward authentic problem-solving while grounding them in integrated STEM disciplines. Like the other volumes in the series, this book is designed to meet the growing need to infuse real-world learning into F–12 classrooms. This interdisciplinary, three-lesson module uses project- and problem-based learning to help students investigate aspects of climate change that have been driven by the rise in global temperatures over the past century. Working in teams, students will use an engineering design process to identify a local environmental problem, develop a model to help monitor and minimise its impact and create a presentation about their findings.
