This packet is meant to provide 3rd grade teachers with a new outlook on teaching traditional summer school programs. In order to engage students and encourage them to want to attend summer school we have created a summer school packet centered on STEAM ideas that students will love! We have included reading and math activities for each day and a STEAM related project that correlates with each reading and math lesson. We have also integrated technology projects as much as we can to help motivate student learning. Each day could be divided into 3- hour long blocks (reading, math, and steam). However, the packet is also designed where it can be used as a 3-4 hour summer school unit that fully combines reading and math throughout the entire time.
Included in Packet:
Links to Online Reading Passages or ebooks and Corresponding Comprehension Questions
Outdoor and Indoor QR Code Measurement Scavenger Hunts
Measurement Math Station Task Cards
Paper Airplane Engineering Challenge
Earthquake Shelter Engineering Challenge
Graph, Table, and Operation Math Word Problems
Place Value Dice Games
and much more!
These activities could also be used in home-school programs, in the regular classroom, for remediation or enrichment groups, or any after school STEM clubs. For a differentiated option, purchase the 4th-5th grade Summer School STEAM themed engineering week. STEAM activities are the same (paper airplanes/earthquake shelter) but reading passages and math problems are geared toward higher grade levels. (Perfect for 3rd-5th Grade Summer School)
