Can't even begin to tell ya how thankful I am for this week off!!! I have hit a few goals with my TPT and Instagram so I wanted to kick off this Thanksgiving week with a little giveaway.
So, starting today I will giveaway 3 products of the winner's choice, from my shop for free. I will do the same thing again tomorrow and Wednesday, so be sure to pop back by each day to enter that giveaway:) (Enter at the end of this post:))
Ok, bobbing for apples and STEM you say??? Well I found a fab STEM packet from Get Caught Engineering with a bunch of wonderful activities:) This packet is their Get Caught Engineering in November with STEM.
The activity we did was bobbing for apples. Bobbing for apples sounds easy and messy, right?! Wrong! The kiddos had to design something to "bob" for apples without getting wet!
I've gotta be honest...I wasn't sure how this would go...the whole STEM process is fairly new to me, but EACH and EVERY time we do a STEM activity, I stand amazed!! I wish, how I wish you could hear the conversations when I say begin.....it makes this teacher's heart smile.
I also feel like the kids get more serious about their work with each challenge. They did such an amazing job filling out their paperwork, designing, sketching, planning....the works! (Get Caught Engineering's pack includes all the papers you need!)
Here are just a few of the "devices" they designed. Love their creativity!
After several attempts and re-designs, most of the teams were able to retrieve apples...one team got 14! I love how they stuck to it and didn't give up and I also love how they cheered each other on:)
Don't forget to enter my giveaway and come back tomorrow and Wednesday to enter again:)
