STEM activities are fun, hands-on, engaging, and collaborative. Students love the interactive nature of these activities, and teachers love the creative and critical thinking they require. This lesson (and extension activities) will allow you to present STEM with a twist. What's the twist? Her name is Miss Peculiar.
Each lesson begins with an introduction (or if you've taught one of these lessons before, a reminder) of Miss Peculiar, your very unusual friend. You'll share her eccentricities -- for example, her odd fashion taste (just look at her picture), her unusual diet (ostrich burgers for breakfast!), and her quirky habits (collecting shoelaces?). The more you talk her up, the more lifelike she'll become. (In my students' minds, Miss Peculiar ranked up there with Santa and the Tooth Fairy!) Her pocketbook holds all sorts of unusual objects...and to solve this challenge, you'll need them!
This 10-page unit includes
--photo gallery (of completed activity)
--2 student activity pages (printables) to complete during the lesson
--follow-up guide (with science, technology, engineering, and math questions)
