This is a complete STEM Nursery Rhyme Unit to go along with the nursery rhyme "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star". It includes the following STEM activities:
Crystal Stars – Grow star shaped crystals using borax and hot water! Make one for the class to observe, or make one for each student!
★ Why Do Stars Twinkle? - use a flashlight, aluminum foil and water to discover how our atmosphere makes stars seem to twinkle!
★ QR Codes with links to YouTube videos with alternate versions of the rhyme – these are Safeshare links so no ads will display. There are also qr codes for What Are Stars? and Nickelodeon Dance Party (tune is Twinkle Little Star). .
Students create an air propelled rocket to visit the little star!
★ Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Puzzle – cut out and laminate puzzle. Students put the numbers 1-10 in order to make the puzzle.
★ Pattern Block Stars – students use pattern blocks to create stars, then count and record how many of each shape they used.
★ Roll & Cover Games – students use 1,2, or 3 dice according to their mat and cover the sum.
★ Addition Search – Choose sums to 10 or sums to 20 to differentiate for your students. Students use a magnifying glass to find the addition equations and record them on the matching sheet.
Full color version of rhyme and a black & white copy for students. Students can circle sight words or specific letters on their copies. A cut and paste sequencing sheet is also included.
★ Invitation to Create – ideas for an open-ended process art project.
