All of the units include lesson plans with detailed instructions for the teacher, ready to use duplication masters and assessment tools, background information and additional resources for teachers. Many of the lessons are provided in at two levels (basic and advanced) and student materials are available in English and Spanish. Elementary science topics and the related engineering fields include: Earth Materials/Materials Engineering, Air and Weather/Mechanical Engineering, Water/Environmental Engineering, Balance and Force/Civil Engineering, Simple Machines/Industrial Engineering, Insects/Agricultural Engineering, and Sound/Acoustical Engineering. Included is a comprehensive list of books, websites, and videos related to the engineering discipline.
