What is a STEM Thematic Unit?

A STEM thematic unit is a framework for teaching everything a young child needs to know, all centered around a central theme (in this case, frogs).

Thematic units and unit studies include elements of math, reading, social studies, science, language arts, and STEM. Most thematic units are used at the preschool and kindergarten level, although you can also study using some elements of unit studies in older grades.

While most classroom teachers stop using thematic units around third grade, many homeschooling families use the concept of thematic units to learn well into middle school.

If you need more spring theme ideas, check out our butterfly theme, flower theme, and farm theme.
