ST 1.3

ST1.3 Students are empowered to personalize and self-direct their STEM learning experiences supported by STEM educators who facilitate their learning.

The class read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom as part of their Tree Unit. A STEM activity was set-up to incorporate literacy and math. The students answered these questions: How many letters can you balance on your tree? Can you identify the letters you pick out to put on your tree? 


The class read the poem, "Five Little Pumpkins," then they found letters they knew and counted how many words were in a line. They also practiced reading it together. Then, the class worked on building a gate that would hold all five pumpkins. The students could use any materials found in the classroom, but they they had to make sure all the pumpkins could fit and that the gate would remain standing.
