Just in time for the winter holidays, we have created a STEM winter-themed calendar! Students will pop frozen bubbles, make fake snow, design a new Santa sleigh, build a wrapping paper bridge, and much more. The calendar is jam-packed with ideas to keep the learning going during these holiday months. This calendar is recommended as a STEM challenge to students for the holiday break!
Activities are straightforward and accessible to students of all levels with little or no supplies needed. The daily activities will incorporate math concepts, scientific thinking, critical thinking, communication, creativity, and real-world problem solving. Recommended for upper elementary and middle school grades, and students can easily apply skills applicable to their level.
Students apply math concepts to real world scenarios. Examples: Double the recipe for holiday cookies.
Students get outside and explore nature! Examples: Nature seems bare in the winter. Go outside and find some!
Students explore scientific concepts with hands-on experiments and observations with common items. Examples: Make your own fake snow!
Students will explore engineering through design and building activities using household items. Examples: Design a bridge from discarded wrapping paper.
Students get a mix of science, engineering, and math activities with the goal to have some fun. Examples: Make holiday goop from water, corn starch, and glitter.
Winter calendar covers December 2014 - January 2015.
