What teachers are saying about this STEM Activity!

"My class was so engaged! I can not wait to do this activity every year!"

"This was such a good idea. I used with my 1st graders the week before Thanksgiving and they loved it!"

"This is the first STEM activity I am going to use with my 2nd Graders this year. I know they are going to have a blast. I can't wait to see it in action. I also love the STEM planning booklet you have included. It will be wonderful for them to be able to take them home and share the activity with their parents. I am going to print out pictures of their "turkey trap" to glue on the inside cover. It will also be a great keepsake. Thank you!"

"Did a family stem challenge for Thanksgiving. Parents had so much fun coming into the classroom and participating with their child."

"It was such a joy to hear cascades of discussions erupting from working on this STEM Project."
