Connect to a Read Aloud: The Water Princess
This STEM Project is a companion activity to The Water Princess by Susan Verde. The book explores the reality of how people walk for water every day.
Take students through the STEM Process!
Students observe different ways to filter water. They test different types of filters to see which ones work best.
An opinion writing activity is included as a follow up for students to write about which materials they think work best for filtering water.
Amazing resource for STEM club, STEM teachers, elementary librarians, parents who love hands-on learning, and elementary teachers who want to create a hands-on educational environment in their classroom!
Note from Carly and Adam on this STEM Challenge:
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.
