My kids love this cross-currcular lesson using a picture book to connect to science and engineering! This STEM lesson includes the reading of “Zoom Broom” by Margery Palantini with HOT questions and a persuasive writing prompt. After reading the book, students explore the relationship between mass, force, and distance through designing their own broom keeping scientific principles in mind.
