March STEAM Activities

Hello everyone!  I am back to write about my recently uploaded March STEAM Activities resource.  The STEAM Activities have been a HUGE hit in my classroom, so I cannot wait to continue them for the rest of the year!!  The March STEAM Activities set also comes with five activities.  I again tried to incorporate every letter of STEAM's acronym (science, technology, engineering, art and math) throughout the month's activities.

 Click here to find the link to the product. 




The first activity in my March STEAM pack is Truffula Tree Fun



In this activity, students will use toilet paper or paper towel rolls, construction paper and tissue paper to build Truffula Trees.  Truffula Trees are featured in The Lorax by Dr. Seuss, and they are perfect to celebrate for Read Across America!

Included in this activity are an informational sheet to teach some fun facts about Dr. Seuss and a graphic organizer included to help students plan and improve their creations!




The next activity in my March STEAM pack is Wonderful Windsocks


Students will build windsocks out of 1/2 of a poster board OR 12x18 construction paper, streamers and string.  The class can go outside to test their windsocks once they finish because March and April are the windiest months of the year!

Included in this activity are an informational sheet to teach about windsocks and a graphic organizer included to help students plan and improve their creations!


 The third activity in my March STEAM Pack is Leprechaun Slide Traps!
 
Students will build a leprechaun slide trap using Legos, pipe cleaner, leprechaun template and a toilet paper roll.  I purchased very affordable off brand Legos on Amazon, but I have also seen them in the party favors section at Target.  If teachers do not want to use Legos, they can make a ladder with Popsicle sticks or toothpicks.



Next in the March STEAM Activities is Rockin' Rainbows!

To continue with a St. Patrick's Day theme, students will build standing rainbows!  They can read the "What Makes a Rainbow?" page to learn more about rainbows before building!



 The final activity in the March STEAM Activities is the Google Classroom and Lego lesson.
 Students will start on Google classroom.  They will move the colored Lego pieces from the left side of the screen to the puzzle on the right side of the screen.  This will help them build St. Patrick's Day themed things: a rainbow, a pot of gold, a 4-leaf clover and a horseshoe.



While the students are completing the Google Classroom lesson, they can color the graphic organizer to then visualize what each item should look like.


Finally, they can use the graphic organizer to build with real Legos!  The Google and graphic organizer are a great way for students to plan what to build!



Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope these March STEAM Activities make Science class extra fun for you and your students! Enjoy!
