Look here for the unit material -

The MMIC Designing Model Membranes unit includes unit overview materials, the Juan Daniel的幸运蛙 (Juan Daniel’s Fútbol Frog) storybook, lesson plans and supporting materials, and a summative Integrated Performance Assessment. Some lessons also include a teacher guide and scoring rubrics. Many MMIC unit materials are made available in Mandarin Chinese and English. The MMIC unit is not intended as a stand-alone unit but will require purchase of the original Engineering is Elementary® (EiE®) Just Passing Through: Designing Model Membranes curriculum and materials kit. Portions of the curriculum were left unchanged and teachers will need to reference the EiE® Teacher Guide on occasion.
