Activities for ages 5 to 8.
Grab a bag of cookies (yes, cookies!) and get ready for some serious STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fun! These five kid-approved projects develop abstract thinking, teamwork, engineering and math skills. They’re an easy prep, motivating way to help children prepare for their STEM filled future.
Five Awesome STEM Activities
The easy to follow teacher directions, STEM center cards and activity record sheets give you all the details you need to add STEM into your schedule. Just grab a bag of Oreos or other flat-topped cookie and invite kids to start thinking!
Tackling one project at a time, children design a parachute that safely flies a cookie without breaking.
They create a bridge that can hold a cup of pennies.
Kids make tall skyscrapers,
And garages that are large enough to hold a Matchbox car.
Plus, to add in math practice, STEMers estimate the number of cookies in ten cookie jars and then count to see if they were correct.
That’s five hands-on STEM projects in all!
