Father's Day STEM and Writing: Build a Toolbox STEM Activity.

Integrate STEM in your classroom this Summer or at the end of the year and celebrate Father's Day! Special option to celebrate caregivers too! Students build a toolbox from recycled materials.

This activity helps students develop critical thinking and engineering skills. Students plan, design, and execute their own ideas. After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't using our STEM Journal.

Amazing resource for STEM club, STEM teachers, elementary librarians, parents who love hands-on learning, and elementary teachers who want to create a hands-on educational environment in their classroom!

Integrate Writing!

A writing activity is included for students to write how thankful they are for their fathers and caregivers. Each tool for the toolbox has a different writing prompt.

Aligns with NGSS and Common Core.
