GoldieBlox Education:
Learning with Levers STEM Early Learning Kit (1st Grade)


In the GoldieBlox: Learning with Levers Early STEM Learning kit, kids at the first grade level will design cars, cranes, and catapults as they learn about levers, loads, and linkages (hey, we could keep this up all day!). Through examples that involve biology and the natural world, students discover how these parts function in the world around them. Students will use scientific methods to test the properties of each of their designs, all while learning additional lessons about friction, controlling experimental conditions, and forming new hypotheses.

  • Curriculum includes 4 comprehensive lessons; construction pack comes 592 pieces, with 6 storybooks
  • Lessons are fully aligned with Next Generation Science Standards, correlated to Common Core State Standards, and use research-validated 5E methodology. Click here to see the standards alignment.
