Summary: • This Pacing Guide is intended to offer a possible organization for a hybrid class, using VEX 123, and was developed as part of the COVID Resources to support teachers.
• In it, VEX 123 STEM Lab Units are paired with VEX 123 Activities that cover similar subjects or concepts.
• This list is organized in a trajectory from beginner to advanced in terms of concepts and content, from top to bottom.

• See the Using VEX 123 Activities in the Classroom Knowledge Base article for more information about how to incorporate these activities with the 123 STEM Lab Units.
