This St. Patrick's Day themed STEM challenge packet, is one of my favorite activities! Included is a nonfiction text regarding the history and culture surrounding St. Patrick's Day that is accompanied with text dependent questions to encourage close reading. There are 2 detailed STEM challenges with student response and lab sheets, 3 mini-investigations to encourage students to further implement the science, technology, engineering and math focus and of course, reflections and rubrics! There are different levels of reflections to tailor the activities towards older children or younger children, and an evaluation rubric for the teacher to assess each student or group. (PLUS there is a BONUS! activity!!) Anything else you would like or need to go along with this package, just ask!!
