STEM: Building Activities for K-2

Since starting my Early Childhood Education STEM Enrichment Program, and going through the first 4 weeks, I have decided to create some STEM packets that tie into ELA, Math and Next Generation Science Standards. After talking with teachers at the schools I work at, I was able to take a few of the texts that are commonly used in K-2 in my district. Using that knowledge, I set about creating packets that teachers could easily use in conjunction with the literature that are differentiated and include student self assessments.

This is a great hands on unit for K-2 students that is aligned with ELA & Math CCSS, and Next Generation Science Standards for Engineering & Design. Students will read the story Peter Rabbit, and be challenged to use specific materials to build a trap to catch Peter Rabbit.

***Please note that additional materials are needed for this activity***
String, white glue, straws, popsicle sticks, scissors, masking tape or duct tape.

This packet includes:
Cover Page
Introduction and Objective Page
3 pages of ELA, Math and Next Generation Science Standards for K-2
Lesson Procedure
Peter Rabbit poster
Peter Rabbit Differentiated Self Assessment
Peter Rabbit Differentiated Math Extension
Peter Rabbit Trap Designs
Peter Rabbit Trap Explanations
Peter Rabbit Position Cards
Trapping Little Peter Rabbit Banner for classroom display
Peter Rabbit Black and White Cut Outs
