Integrate STEM in your classroom and promote conservation and peace in your school with Wangari's Trees of Peace Read Aloud STEM Challenge!
Students learn about Wangari and the Green Belt Movement in Kenya. They create their own Tree of Peace, and write about how they can promote peace themselves. Excellent resource to use on Earth Day or Arbor Day!
Take students through the Engineering Design Process!
Students design, build, and test their own Tree of Peace! After they have completed their STEM activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't.
A writing activity is included as a follow up for students to write about how they can promote peace in their own school.
