Make learning fun with this Hanukkah-themed STEM activity!
The students receive a letter stating that their family is unable to play dreidel because they forgot to bring a dreidel. In order to play the game they will need to create a dreidel using only the materials provided. This is an excellent activity to introduce Hanukkah to your students.
This activity helps students 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.
Aligns with NGSS(Next Gen Science Standards).
