STEM Challenges with the Pigeon


STEM Challenges with the Pigeon

I like to start most lessons with a read aloud!  Everyone loves a story.  STEM lessons can come to life with a read aloud to start it off!  The pigeon is always funny and a great way to kick off a STEM lesson.

Don't Let the Pigeon on the Bus!! STEM Challenge: How about if we design a bus just for him? Your kids will have a blast designing a bus and learning about simple machines, like the wheel and axle.

FREE Coding Lesson for Scratch Jr.

FREE Coding Lesson for Scratch Jr.

by LisaTeachR's Classroom

Coding with the littles is so much fun! Have fun with this fun, digital resource for Scratch Jr. Scratch Jr. is a wonderful programming language that lets kids ages 5-7 create stories and games.  Kids use blocks to create the code. Your littles will love it.

I start it with the ISTE standards and then an inclusion activity.  Then I introduce the new blocks we will be using that day.  I have a slide that shows the task for the day.  The last slide is always "Let's Play." This is a digital lesson that will be copied to your Google drive. Feel free to change out the text and your bitmoji. Lessons are widescreen 16:9 for best viewing.

This lesson is for the basics. They will learn about movement blocks!!

Blocks kids will use are:

  • movement
  • trigger: green flag

What I love about this lesson is the feeling of ownership kids have when creating their own sprites to create their names..

**Scratch Jr. is for ipads. This a lesson for the basics. It's a good place to start.

Enjoy! Thanks sooooo much for leaving feedback. I really appreciate it! Besides, you get TPT credits for future purchases!

Electric Distribution - An investigative mystery for remote or in-class learning - $3.50

By All-American Teacher Tools

This .ppt slide presentation shows students the path that electricity takes from the power plant to the lamp plugged in at their house. Each slide explains the step in the system, then asks students to research what might have gone wrong at that step to cause the power outage. When they have completed all the steps, you will hand them a card (or virtual card) that will tell them where their power was interrupted. This encourages them to make a comprehensive list of problems. If the card they received matches or nearly matches one of the problems on their list, they earn a prize from you!
