PK to Grade 6 Elementary Engineering Curriculum Maps Available!

I have finished the first drafts of Curriculum Maps, based on an Understanding By Design model,  for a PK to Grade 6 robotics curriculum called the Elementary Engineering Curriculum based on BeeBots (PK-K), Lego Education WeDo (Grade 1-4), and Lego Education Mindstorms NXT (Grade 5-6).  Grades K, 2, 4, and 6 have an open ended engineering challenge.  The assessments need some work and the standards need to be double checked.  The maps are aligned, where application to the new Massachusetts ELA and Math standards, which are nearly identical to the new US National Common Core Standards.  I would be happy to answer any questions or fix any errors you find. You can find each unit under the Resources tab as well as a zip file of the complete curriculum.  Note that our Atlas Rubicon Curriculum Mapping Tool does not allow me to embed the resource files.  However, these may also be found on the Resources page.  Enjoy!
