Resources for early Elementary STEM lessons

Hi! I am a current college student working towards my masters in elementary education with an endorsement of STEM. I am interested in teaching the younger grade levels such as pre-k, kindergarten, first, and second. It seems that throughout my course work, finding great STEM lessons really begins at 3rd grade. Do you have any great resources or ideas for STEM lessons in the younger grades?

I too am a college student and am learning about how to incorporate STEM into my elementary school classroom. I also want to teach the younger grades like first, second, or third. The resources that have already been offered to you from people have been very helpful I am sure not just to you, but to me as well. I am learning how important STEM is and I feel having as many resources as I can before starting to teach STEM if very important. Your question was a very necessary one to ask.

Hello Taylor, My name is Dr. George Mehler and I am a professor of science methods at Temple University. I have been developing a YouTube channel with demonstrations for every idea that young learners should know before they enter high school. These demonstrations are free and there are a wide range of topics. I hope that you will find them helpful! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsbfPM5Wd1REwCIBYJFIyOw Best, Dr. George Mehler Ed.D., Temple University
