Yeti STEM Modules

Multimodal Learning Opportunities

Yeti STEM curriculum provides students with relevant, tech-based learning experiences and supports efficient workflow processes for teachers by providing all of the class materials. Our modules include topics ranging from introductory biology/life science, computational thinking, to digital citizenship, and training in G Suite applications. Lessons consist of the following seven components, each providing unique opportunities for learning.

ENGAGE

These include a variety of warm-up type assignments; some are completed as individuals, in groups, or as a class. ENGAGE is designed to cultivate interest, introduce new ideas, or solidify understanding of previous concepts.

ELABORATE

Often a hands-on, lab, or group activity, ELABORATE lessons bring a practical approach to understanding challenging concepts and ideas.

EMPOWER

A game-centered approach to learning. EMPOWER stresses summary ideas and vocabulary through entertaining exercises. EMPOWER makes studying fun!

EXPLAIN

A portion of text that correlates to the lesson and includes captivating illustrations. The text is succinct and to the point, and is perfect for students to get the facts. Perfect for the flipped classroom, each EXPLAIN reading includes a summary and vocabulary glossary. The “Another Look” questions at the end of the reading may be assigned to students, used as class discussion prompts, or as a formative assessment to check for student understanding of the lesson.

EVALUATE

Students can visit EVALUATE to take formative self-assessments throughout the lesson. Students receive immediate feedback to gauge their level of understanding of the current lesson. Teacher reports give immediate feedback on a student’s level of comprehension. Teachers can easily print individual student reports for conferences. Students showing mastery can move on to other activities, students struggling with comprehension can spend more time on review.

ENRICH

The project-based and hands-on approach of ENRICH lessons give students additional content with greater opportunities for Science and Engineering practices. From developing models, to conducting research, and communicating information through presentations and projects, ENRICH learning experiences allow students to dig deeper into content.

EXPLORE

Perfect for early-finishers, EXPLORE allows students to probe deeper into topics surrounding the lesson. Articles, videos, and career connections help foster deeper connections and real-world applications to facets encompassing the topic.

Our flagship module, Yeti Code, is a first-to-market multiplayer coding game. It’s a fun and engaging way to walk students through the basics of coding continuing to advanced levels.

Yeti Academy offers two distinct coding curriculums.  Yeti Code Level 1 is perfect for first time coders and suggested for grades 2-4. Yeti Code Level 2 is for students who have already been exposed to coding and is suggested for grades 4-8. Each student has the option of playing in single player mode in an interactive Yeti Mountain world. Teachers can challenge students by building new levels with our easy-to-use level builder. Later on, students will be able to virtually play against other students in a multiplayer game environment. Each player begins with a coding palette to choose commands as they learn the coding language and make their moves.

As they advance, students will be able to type coding language from memory and try coding against their peers. The most accurate and efficient coder wins!
