Are you looking for a fun activity to do with the book The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds? These is also great for PI Day! STEM The Dot Activities are two fun STEM challenges that I connect to the book The Dot. The Dot Sculptures and The Dot Art (Pointillism) lets students express themselves as they create a STEM project. Each activity can be placed in a School Box STEM Center or done as a whole group. This packet contains: Challenge Label, Inside the Box Student’s Directions, Teacher’s Page with the directions and materials, and Student STEM Journal.

  • These activities can also be used for STEAM Activities, Maker Spaces, Tinkering Labs, or After School Clubs. Your students will love designing, creating, engineering, predicting, comparing, building, & reflecting about their challenges. Students will problem solve and think critically as they complete their challenges.
