K-3 SAIL Resources Compiled by Karen Lirenman @klirenman

(SAIL is the school that I work at. The program has a STEAM focus)

I apologize as these are not overly organized as they have come from a few different sources.

This is my original “Maker Space” resource. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1xitHY5txdVLd4F8XUVj8mRxWqDR-kqxPzB5ja63q3Z8/edit?usp=sharing  The links shared below are links I’ve found or have been shared with me.
