Engineering…Is It In Your Nature? Your students will explore the natural world through these engaging hands-on STEM activities.
Can your students build a bird nest? Design the best beak? Engineer a spider web? Create a fantasy flower? Invent an animal adaptation for a habitat? Engineer a behavioral adaptation? Have your students test their skills at nature’s engineering problems.
We have combined six of our popular STEM activities into a fantastic discounted bundle for your classroom, afterschool program or camp. Save 30% by purchasing the bundle!
These STEM lessons were developed for a program we created for family workshops at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in Washington DC. They were such a huge hit with the hundreds of attendees that we adapted them for smaller groups and added some engineering process support materials.
The lessons have student pages, teacher notes, inquiry questions, the engineering design process poster, rubrics, and student role cards. Included lessons are:
* STEM Your Beak
* STEM the Flower Show
* STEM and Animal Adaptations
* STEM and Behavioral Adaptations
* STEM Your Nest
* Engineer a Spider Web
****Important Note – all of these lessons are available as individual lessons and some are included in the monthly bundles. Please make sure that you don’t already have them before purchasing.
