Can your students catch Santa?
Have your students design, build, and test a Santa Trap! Integrate STEM in your classroom and celebrate Christmas!
The How to Catch Santa Christmas Activity is a fun and unique way to engage your students during the Christmas Season. Perfect for a Christmas Party or as a fun STEM Club Christmas Activity before Christmas Break.
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. We also included a writing activity for students to write How to Catch Santa instructions for someone else.
Perfect companion to the Christmas Read Aloud Book How to Catch Santa by Jean Reagan.
Aligns with NGSS and Common Core.
