PBS has a wonderful collection of Curious George videos where the beloved monkey explores the basic concepts of STEM. The videos are accompanied by resources and curriculum topics, via pbslearningmedia.

Active learning begins with curiosity! The Curious George STEM Collection is a great way to help young children understand science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts, such as measuring, building, and simple machines. Lesson plans with Curious George videos offer hands-on investigations and exciting new learning opportunities that will inspire children to explore the world around them. As students ask questions, predict outcomes, share observations, and formulate theories, they establish the science skills and “habits of mind” that lead to academic success and lifelong learning. You may also want to check out the interactive whiteboard games specifically designed for teachers!
