Here’s a simple open-ended building activity for kids of all ages – Colored craft sticks, wooden cubes, and small plastic cups! Simple materials, and yet we have been having a blast building all kinds of amazing structures with them.
Building Challenge STEM & Writing Centers - These centers have students building and writing about their build. There are challenges that include measurement, research and writing that go along with each build.
Makerspaces: "Library Lego Checkout Club" - such a cool idea! Everytime a child checks out books, they get to add 3 legos to a tower in the children's room. --> What a fun idea for kids to visualize the number of books they check out!
A fabulous display from Yulia celebrating all things nautical. A quiz was included in this display - hidden pirate scrolls could be unfurled to reveal questions and at the end of the summer the children were awarded small prizes for their answers.
