MAKE LEARNING FUN!
Watch your students laugh as they learn with this engaging STEM challenge. Students learn to work cooperatively in small groups or on their own as they explore Christmas in Mexico.
Students will read about Christmas in Mexico and do some hands-on learning by creating a Three Kings Cake out of construction paper. Students will also play a game to simulate a Mexican Christmas tradition.
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.
Each activity aligns with the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).
