You can get a big bang for your buck with this resource! Think "Flat Stanley" of Science. Sammie Steam was designed to look like a cross between the scientist Albert Einstein and the artist Leonardo da Vinci. This packet contains many suggested Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math challenges. It was created with the purpose of getting families actively involved with their children by completing challenges that will have them all having fun! Sammie STEAM, the adventure dog, will become your students' companion as they complete these activities outside of the school day. This will help foster a strong home/school relationships! As the children complete the activities and share them with the class other students will eagerly join in! It is a perfect way to encourage the students to make connections from one academic area to the other. This package offers differentiated ways for the students to document their STEAM experience. Students are encouraged to use photography, artwork, writing, a log etc. This original challenge, created by the STEM to STEAM Trio, is aligned to the Next Generation Science and Common Core standards. STEM is great but STEAM is better.

Included in the packet:

Letter to the teacher detailing the project

Letter to the families with directions for completing the challenge

Sammie Steam (black/white and color)

Badges to glue on Sammie (black/white and color)

List of possible challenges for families to complete

Recording sheet

Writing paper (for primary and intermediate)

Completion Award (black/white and color)

If you would like to leave the name of the state in which you reside when you leave feedback (see tips below) we would love to see how many states Sammie as been completing activities in!
