We got to do some really fun stem activities for this week’s review! We made a lighthouse and a boat and so many more things! For the purpose of this review I will be showing pics of our lighthouse and tinfoil boat. These activities are part of theSTEM Activities, Full Year of Challenges with Close Reading by
Tied 2 Teaching. There is a full year’s worth of stem activities and reading material included in this package. My son loved getting to do hands on projects instead of just reading something or watching a video. All of the reading material is highly educational and helps the students learn more about lighthouses, boats, the legend of Leprechauns or whatever they are learning for the activity.
The activities are broken down by months and some of them correlate with holidays that happen that month. My son loves knowing we will get to continue these activities for an entire year. This is a great curriculum if you have a child that loves to do projects they get to make. The boat was so easy to make and it was very cheap, in fact all the projects you get to make are easy and cheap!
My son loves anything that has to do with water so he was super happy when he heard the word boat! He also loved the fact that he got to make it out of shiny tinfoil. We read the required reading, answered the questions and he got to folding and bending the foil. He wanted a big boat and the pic above is the finished project! So much fun and it took only a little time!
The lighthouse was also really easy and fun to make!
The bottom pic is our finished project! The middle pic is an example of some of the questions and activities that go along with the project! My science, hands on loving boy enjoyed doing these more then I can say! Whenever I mentioned doing a stem activity I was met with excitement and clapping of hands! This year full of fun, engaging, hands on activities are well worth the price! Be sure to check them out!
