K'NEX Amusement Park Experience Set
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.
K'NEX DNA, Replication, and Transcription Set
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).
Grades 5 - 12
The Teacher's Guide provides lessons designed to take students through three instructional modules:
I.) DNA Structure
2.) Replication & Transcription
3.) Coding, Translation, and Mutations
Excellent demonstration tool at the elementary school level. Curriculum aligned to National Science Education standards for grades 5 – 12.
K'NEX Education Motor Pack
Motorize your K'NEX models to make them more realistic with these two battery powered motors included. (AA batteries not included). Turn concept models into "Technology at Work".
K'NEX Elementary Math & Geometry Set
The K'NEX® Education Elementary Math & Geometry set allows students to build, investigate and explore geometry concepts, vocabulary, and structures in a 2-D and 3-D world. The students live in a 3-D world, so it makes sense for them to connect with geometry on a 3-D level. K'NEX® allows them do just that! The teacher's guide, designed as a resource, provides a glossary of key terms and definitions and includes Vocabulary Card masters to support instruction and understanding. The activities are standards based and designed around best practices in mathematics instruction. They build upon one another as they lead students towards a greater understanding of mathematics and geometric concepts.
K'NEX Energy, Motion & Aeronautics Set
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.
Grades 5 - 9
K'NEX Exploring Machines Set
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.
Grades 5 - 9
K'NEX Forces, Energy & Motion Set
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.
K'NEX Intermediate Math & Geometry Set
The K'NEX® Education Intermediate Math & Geometry set is designed to address critical mathematics concepts in the upper elementary school classroom and provide instructional models that will enhance students' understanding of important concepts and algorithms. Students work cooperatively and are encouraged to interact with each other as they build, investigate, discuss and evaluate mathematical concepts, ideas and models. Research has shown that the use of manipulatives to develop mathematics concepts has many benefits. It allows students to improve their conceptual understanding, achievement and problem solving skills; it encourages student reflections on retaining the information; it promotes a positive attitude toward mathematics; and it develops more self-confidence in students. K'NEX® is a powerful manipulative for students to use in developing and maintaining mathematics concepts.
K'NEX Intro to Simple Machines: Levers and Pulleys Set
K'NEX Intro to Simple Machines: Levers & Pulleys Set
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.
Grades 3 -5
