The daily activities will incorporate math concepts, scientific thinking, critical thinking, communication, creativity, and real-world problem-solving. Recommended for upper elementary and middle school grades, and students can easily apply skills applicable to their level.

STEM = Science, Technology, Engineering, Math

**Calendar includes June, July, and August 2021. The product includes a link to editable Google Slides version of the calendar pages.

Math Monday

Students apply math concepts to real-world scenarios. Examples: Budget for a shopping trip, measure your heartbeat, cooking using fractions.

Outdoor Tuesday

Students get outside and explore nature! Examples: Build a bird feeder, plant a flower, go bird watching.

Science Wednesday

Students explore scientific concepts with hands-on experiments and observations with common items. Examples: Make a lava lamp, design a baking soda/vinegar experiment, discover tongue theory.

Engineering Thursday

Students will explore engineering through design and building activities using household items. Examples: Design a catapult, build a water balloon helmet, invent a new alarm system

Fun Friday

Students get a mix of science, engineering, and math activities with the goal to have some fun. Examples: Create an obstacle course, make symmetry art, design a senses challenge.

About STEM Challenges: Click here to learn more about the 3 Stages of STEM. STEM challenges are an engaging way to incorporate the engineering design process into your classroom or afterschool program! These hands-on activities allow students to work in teams, apply the engineering design process, and connect science topics to real-world applications. The teacher will provide the structure to the project, but students will take an active role in designing and building their own device.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Analyze data from tests to determine similarities and differences among several design solutions to identify the best characteristics of each that can be combined into a new solution to better meet the criteria for success.
Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.
Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost.
Evaluate competing design solutions using a systematic process to determine how well they meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
