FREE K-5 Engineering Literacy Lesson Guides
Each of the teacher guides below provides a Common Core ELA close reading lesson using a picture book. The picture books and teacher guides also provide opportunities to introduce students to the Engineering Design Process in the Next Generation Science Standards.
Click the teacher guide link to download a MS Word document of the guide and if you need a copy of the book (these are all excellent books by the way) I’ve embedded a link to Amazon for each.
These literacy guides are a great way to introduce engineering to students (and teachers).
