I am so excited to be a guest blogger on TS this week. I have some great Spring and Easter STEM activities that I’m eager to share with you all and hope you will love using them! These STEM activities will help add some fun engagement to your classroom!
Recently, (this entire school year haha!) I have fallen more and more in LOVE with STEM activities! So, I thought they would be great to share with the rest of you. These activities are great to set the foundation and can be made exciting for young learners as they continue building on a lesson and concept.
All you need for a Stem activity is a purpose or question, a time to design and brainstorm, a time for creating or building the design, and a time to reflect. And, some teachers choose to set a specific time to complete the activity, but it’s your call. STEM activities are open-ended discoveries where whatever the students come up with is OK. After all, it’s about taking risks and trying new ideas – I could go on forever talking about STEM activities!
Another fun part about STEM activities is that it gives the teacher opportunities to come up with several challenges. I suggest at least two per month, which will allow students to explore and create! If you haven’t tried STEM activities, I highly encourage you to do so. I really think you and your students will LOVE them!

I hope you’ll enjoy these STEM freebies I’m sharing this week! Also, if you like my stuff, I’d love it if you’d follow my TS Classroom to access all of my shared materials. Happy Spring & happy planning with these STEM FREEBIES!
