Are you ready to end the school year with a BANG? We have got ten themed days full of fun, engagement, and academics that will keep your students excited until the very end. We've incorporated art, math, reading, science, and STEM into this unit. Don't have 10 days to spare? It's okay, pick and choose the activities that work best for you and your students.

Here's what is included:

Use the word CELEBRATE! as an acronym:

L Learning with Lemonade

E Emoji Excitement

B Bubble Trouble

R Race to the Finish

A Awesome Artists

T Taste Test

Here's a little about each day:

Cotton Candy Clouds: Students learn or review the four types of clouds, make a cloud viewer to explore and observe, create the clouds with cotton candy (or cotton balls), and use their creative writing skills to write a cloud story

Once Upon an EXPERIMENT: These two experiments are tied to Fairy Tales! The first experiment uses the story of Snow White. Students complete a "poisonous" apple experiment. Then the students complete a STEM project with the 3 Little Pigs.

Learning with Lemonade: Students make Lemonade in a Bag and a How To Booklet to describe the instructions. Students also observe a simple Lemon Sink or Float activity.

Emoji Excitement: Students have several different Emoji activities- Cracking the Emoji Riddles, Emoji Crafts with Emoji writing, Emoji Photobooth, and Emoji letters

Bubble Trouble: Students blow a bubble and create a class graph. Students also make a bubble gum machine to write about their upcoming school year.

RACE to the Finish: Students have 10 Lego Challenges to complete

Awesome Artists: Students complete a candy experiment, read a story and become artists!

Taste Test: Students taste three different types of pickles, describe the pickles, and create a class graph. Students also create a pickle art project.

Edible Engineering: Students work together to create Solar SMORES. Students also write down the steps using a pocket book and SMORES craft!

Blast Off!: Students write about their upcoming school year and make themselves as an astronaut, students make Balloon Rockets and test their flights!

*Please note that you will need materials to complete some of the experiments and STEM projects. We have included a letter to send to parents that asks for donations.f
