November is such a full month, Veteran’s Day and then to Thanksgiving Holiday Activities. STEM Fridays are a regular routine in my classroom. I try to have an engineering design challenge and connect it with a book or a science/social studies concept. One of my favorites is with the book Balloons Over Broadway by Melissa Sweet.
This story is
about how a puppeteer started the Macy’s Day Parade and how it changed over the years. I love integrating STEM to inventors of history. Tony Sarg was an innovator and a creative puppeteer. When students learn about how someone’s creativity changed the world it really inspires them to use their own creativity. Click here to check out 👉🏼 Thanksgiving Puppet and Float STEM Activity. Students design and create puppets and floats to have their own parade.
Everyday is a Holiday November is a fun bundle of daily historical events connected to STEM.
