African Penguin Habitat STEM Challenge
This STEM lesson is designed to get students thinking about animals from one of the seven continents, Africa and their habitat. This easy STEM activity asks students to work cooperatively with a team or work on their own, to design and test a man made home for a African Penguin. I have designed this lesson to pair with my South Africa Travel Book, which can be found in my TpT store.
This download includes:
1. STEM lesson recording sheet for students to record all parts of the STEM process
2. Pictures of:
Man made homes built for the penguins
This lesson also pairs great with either lessons on habitats or seven continent study, specifically of Africa. I recommend reviewing information about African Penguins and Boulders Beach before starting the lesson to give students some background knowledge and activate creative thinking.
With references to Boulders Beach, I also recommend you pair this activity with either my small book on South Africa or your own resources on the country.
