This week, we celebrated learning about apples! 🙂 I was super excited to introduce STEAM stations to my students and parents! Our school has been a STEAM school for two years. We try to incorporate STEAM style activities as often as we can! 🙂 My goal with this set of lessons was to have both the parents and students engaged at 100%, so, I put them in rotations for an hour and 15 minutes. The kids had a blast, and the parents did too! 🙂
We read several ‘applecentric’ texts! 🙂
STEAM stands for SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, ART, and MATHEMATICS.
I switched up her glyph idea a little bit when I did it with my kids…because I wanted to do the happy face version of the apples! 🙂 Her pack has several other cool ideas that you can read about on this post. Thanks, Jen for such a fun way to work on Math! 🙂 XOXO
Our E was to build stable structures with bits of apple. Each student was given some apples and some toothpicks and they were tasked with making it stable enough to hold some quarters! 🙂 They did a great job, and I saw tons of creativity! 🙂
An apple snack that I LOVE is apples with whipped cream cheese, caramel sauce, and heath chips! 🙂 I put it together in front of the kids so that I would have the foundation for a shared writing experience! We are still working on wrapping that up, but…I’m going to do a post on apple writing for you as soon as it’s done so that you can see our process! Super proud of this year’s writers! 🙂
