I have teamed up two of my passions: literature and creativity and voila! Introducing The Gardener STEM and STEAM activities. Read the Caldecott Honor Book The Gardener by Sarah Stewart about Lydia Grace Finch and give your students eight (8) different STEM/STEAM activities to imagine and create and engineer with. All eight activities are sure to get your student's engineering and creative juices flowing while enjoying the beauty of nature and of a little girl's beautiful heart. Enjoy!
