It’s important to make learning fun, but also purposeful. One activity I love using is my Basketball STEM Challenge, it’s perfect since college basketball is starting their March Madness Tournament. Connecting important skills to my students’ interests is critical in making learning fun and engaging. Students love shooting hoops and learning how
to record their data. A good book to connect is Crossover by Kwame Alexander.
Fun Books: Boxitects is a fun book about show the importance of teamwork! How to Catch a Leprechaun is a great book to connect with Leprechaun traps and houses in the STEM Challenges. The Crossover engages even my most reluctant readers.
