May STEAM

Hello everyone!  I am back to write about my recently uploaded May 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 May 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 May STEAM pack is Cinco de Mayo Maracas

In this activity, students will use a cups, Popsicle Sticks,  construction paper and beads (or other fillers) to make a maraca for Cinco de Mayo.

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



The next activity in my May STEAM pack is Breakfast in Bed.
Students will use Popsicle Sticks, a pipe cleaner, tape, and a breakfast food template (color or BW) to create a tray to carry to Breakfast in Bed on Mother's Day.

Included in this activity are an informational sheets about Mother's Day and a graphic organizer for what they can improve on.


 The third activity in my May STEAM Pack is Buzz, Buzz, Honeybee!
In this activity, students will use toothpicks and tape OR marshmallows to build a honeycomb from inside of a bee hive.

Students will learn about why bees are important and why bees chose a hexagon shape for honeycombs.  There is also a graphic organizer for them to create their ideas on.



Next in the May STEAM Activities is Memorial Day Parade Floats
Students will build a Memorial Day float using a cardboard box (like from cereal), water bottle tops, tooth picks, construction paper and Memorial Day templates (offered in color and BW) to build a float.  There is an informational page about Memorial Day and a graphic organizer included.



 The final activity in the May 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 Insect themed things: an ant, a bug, a caterpillar and a butterfly.


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 May STEAM Activities make Science class extra fun for you and your students! Enjoy!
