 Not only do students learn important concepts through STEAM education  (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math), but they can also improve their 4 basic English skills (listening, speaking, reading, writing). Learning English as a second language or foreign language through other subjects (also known as CLIL) is a popular way to teach EFL/ESL, which is one reason why our STEAM Kits are so popular with English teachers and parents alike.

Each Balloon Car STEAM Kit includes a carefully crafted lesson plan that’s suitable for a wide range of ages and skill levels. The STEAM-based English lesson is built around 4 pages of worksheets to do the following:

✅ Teach the vocabulary used when talking about the physics of vehicles.

✅ Explain the steps required to make the balloon car.

✅ Practice the vocabulary introduced in the sub-topic (deciding which vehicles roll, fly, or float),

✅ Take a fun true-or-false quiz with 6 questions related to the STEAM the kit to improve general knowledge and English comprehension.

The BBbots STEAM Zone makes learning fun with online games, activities, and lesson videos!
