STEM Stuff, PIP, and a GIVEAWAY!!

Hello all! 
I know, I know...it's been a while....it's that end of the year nuts stuff and life on top of it and I have not been able to blog.  I wanted to share a few STEM activities we have done and the kids have loved!
 
This pack is super full of lots of activities!  One we did and the kids loved was building a new house for Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz.




The kids had a blast working together to plan and then construct their houses for Dorothy:)
I think the thing I love the most about the STEM challenges is listening to the students and their thinking.  It is amazing to hear how their little minds work:)  Of course you can have Dorothy without a tornado!  Enter Mrs. Eiken's hair dryer, the tornado!!!  That part was a blast!!!
 
Another challenge we started last Friday and will have to finish this week is making marble mazes:)

These are fun but they take forever to glue...I have to do all the gluing because I'm using a hot glue gun:)  Hoping to get done tomorrow:)  Then when they are done the kids can trade mazes and play away!
 
In other news Pip made his first visit to school Friday and it was a huge success!
He was all kinds of social!!  I thought he would curl up in a ball and stay there but he was all about saying hi to the kids!
 
 I don't know about you all but I am already planning my classroom décor for next year and changing things up a bit with a new set that I made:)
I'm celebrating because I hit a little milestone on my FB fan page and finished my Math Meeting headers to coordinate with the new classroom set I made so I thought I would have a little giveaway:)
So....I'm giving away both of my new sets and 2 additional items from my TPT shop of the winner's choice:)  This is my last week with kids...I am going to have a terrible time saying goodbye:(

  2. This year I started doing more STEM stuff with my class. It's amazing! We started doing them with our 1st grade reading buddies. Thanks for the heads up, I've been clueless as to where to find age appropriate tasks.
