Product Description

These  STEM projects are great extensions to children's Christmas books. I love connecting literature to STEM! Any story about a Christmas tree will work for this first project. If you use How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss, students will need to replace a Christmas tree that the Grinch stole. I also like Monster Needs a Christmas Tree by Paul Czajak, where Monster goes all over town looking for a tree. Students will use miscellaneous materials to build a mini Christmas tree. This can alternatively be used as an invitation/provocation: How can you make a Christmas tree from loose parts?

Next, there are so many books about Santa's reindeer getting the flu! Santa's Surprise was written by 8-year-old Nicholas Maselli, which kids love. Most reindeer flu stories have their own solution, but what if Santa didn't find a solution? What else could he use to deliver the toys? Students build with various loose parts to make a vehicle for Santa. This can also be worded as an invitation/provocation: What can you make for Santa to drive if he didn't have his sleigh and flying reindeer?

The printable student booklet takes children step-by-step through the STEM process. A list of possible children's books is included!

These STEM activities are included in my package of Christmas Math and Literacy Activities.
