Want to incorporate STEM into Literacy!? This is the perfect activity to help you do that! In this activity, students work in groups to identify different problems that they find in stories (picture books or novels!). Using the engineering design process and brainstorming rules, each group picks one problem that they want to design a solution for. Students will define the problem that they want to design a solution for, brainstorm different ideas, plan out the solution, create it, present it, and then improve their solution! The activity can be used with ANY book!
This pack also includes a printable poster for the engineering design process and a printable poster of brainstorming rules!
