Elementary Lesson Plans

As one of the fundamental pillars of the transportation industry, workforce development is a critical component in creating and sustaining a connected world. In partnership with elementary teachers and students, MTI developed a STEM transportation unit that introduces 1-6th graders to the basics of how people and goods are moved. These lesson plans are free to use, and MTI welcomes the opportunity to hear feedback or discuss potential partnerships from other educators. In these lessons, students learn about active modes of transportation, sustainability issues, transportation planning, and more.
