Bundle Description

Integrate STEM in your classroom during April with Earth Day Read Aloud STEM Challenges!

Teach students about the importance of taking care of the environment, recycling, and more! Upcycle a Plastic Bag, Engineer a Solar Oven, Create a Tree of Peace, and Explore Water Filtration.

Includes 4 STEM/STEAM Projects to go along with the following Read Aloud Books:

  • One Plastic Bag by Miranda Paul
  • The Water Princess by Susan Verde*
  • Wangari's Trees of Peace by Jeanette Winter
  • Iqbal and His Ingenious Idea: How a Science Project Helps One Family and the Planet by Liz Suneby.

These April Earth Day STEM Activities are more than craftivities. Each STEM Challenge takes students through a process where they develop critical thinking and engineering skills. Students plan, design, and execute their own ideas. After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't.

Amazing resource for STEM club, STEM Teachers, parents who love hands-on learning, and elementary teachers who want to create a hands-on educational environment in their classroom!

Each Activity Includes:

  • Teacher Instructions
  • Student Instructions
  • STEM Journal
  • Student Planning and Reflection Pages
  • Writing Activity
  • NGSS Standards
  • Common Core Standards

*Note for Water Filter STEM Activity

This activity engages students by connecting them to kids of another culture, and educating them on a current world crisis. While many STEM activities are designed with 'fun' in mind, this one requires a certain level of seriousness. It is created with elementary students in mind, and we believe we can inspire them through this.

We do not make money on The Water Princess / Water Filter resource. We donate 100% of the money earned to Ryan's Well. We also donate for any bundle (including this one) purchased that features this resource. We will update the description of The Water Princess STEM Activity with how much has been raised over time.
