Search for GEMS guides by title, by grade level, or by general subject area. Although many GEMS units are designed, written, and tested for specific grade levels, they often are extended to lower or higher levels. Many guides contain suggestions for ways to modify or adapt the presentation for younger or older students. (See also the recommended sequences of GEMS units by grade and subject.)
