The STEM of a Pinecone unit is a way to excite and encourage young kiddos to explore and investigate using science, technology, engineering, art and math.
The activities include the following:
Shared Book: “I Am A Flower Too” emergent reader with kiddo take-home copy
Science: When will a pinecone open? (experiment)
Technology: What is something you want to learn about pinecones?
Engineering: Build a pinecone safe place
Art: Productive thinking activity with a pinecone shape
Math: Pinecone Math book
We also included some Pinecone Brain Teasers --
Thinking and Brain Ticklers - problem solving activities,
as well as, some printables to go with the book,
Penguin and Pinecone, by Salina Yoon.
These activities are designed to be for whole class or small groups.
We have duplicated a couple of activities from other units so we compensated for this by reducing the price.
Thank you very much!
