Looking for a STEM/STEAM activity for St. Patrick's Day? This is the activity for you! Use it after reading a St. Patrick's Day book like "How to Catch a Leprechaun" or "Leprechaun on the Loose" OR just do this activity on its own!
This STEAM/STEM activity walks students through the Engineering Design Process (Ask-Imagine-Plan-Create-Improve). If you don't have a lot of supplies for your kids to use in creating or want to provide your kids with an extra challenge, limit it to a few in each of these categories: Connectors (like pipe cleaners or paper clips), Stiff Materials (like straws or craft sticks), and Flat Materials (like felt or newspaper).
