Create a Groundhog Burrow in this amazing Groundhog Day READ ALOUD STEM Challenge for Groundhog Gets a Say by Pamela Swallow!

In this STEM Lesson, students design a Groundhog Burrow. They learn about how magnets work and use them to help their groundhog navigate the burrow!

The Engineering Design Process:

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. They follow the six step Engineering Design Process: Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create, Experiment, Improve.

Literacy Integration:

This activity is the perfect companion to Groundhog Gets a Say by Pamela Swallow.
