STEM fun!

We completed our first STEM activity.  STEM stands for Science, technology, engineering, and math!   The challenge begins with a problem. The pirates can then tackle solving them any way they choose within the guidelines and supplies given.  We started off with an “easy” challenge, but when I first gave it I could tell their minds were at work and they were a bit hesitant.  They had to create a name tag using three colors and include a picture that represented themselves.  They also had to make the name tag stay on their body without holding it with their hands.  Once they realized they could look around, collaborate, and share ideas the challenge turned from questionable to FUN!  

Sharing their name tag was a great way to practice both listening and speaking skills.
