All I Want For Christmas is STEM (Classroom STEM Activities for the Holidays)

Lately, I have been really interested in integrating more STEM activities in my classroom. I love that my students are engaged, and they love the hands-on aspect of STEM.

I just completed a bundle 4 of STEM activities for December. You can check them out in my TPT store HERE

What I love most about these STEM challenges is that they are presented to students in the form of a letter from the STEM elf. In each letter to the students the elf states the problem for the students and gives them the list of materials with which they may use in order to solve the problem.

The bundle includes:

Christmas Tree Challenge: Students must build a Christmas tree out of plastic cups.

Santa's Sleigh: Students must build a wind powered sleigh for Santa out of paper and a straw.

Silent Jingle Bells: Students must figure out a way to silence a jingle bell.

Make a Dreidel: Students must create a dreidel for Hanukah using only the materials provided.

If you have your students learn about Christmas around the world be sure to check out my Holidays Around the World STEM activities. Learn about how they celebrate the holidays in America, England, Israel, Germany, and Sweden. 

This product includes all of my Christmas STEM challenges and connects them to holiday traditions in other countries. Click on the picture to learn more. 

For other STEM activities check out the STEM section of my TPT store.
