Mae Among the Stars STEM Challenge




I LOVE STEAM/STEM challenges. However, it has always been very hard for me to find the right time to incorporate these design challenges into my curriculum. Not only will this allow you to incorporate a project into your busy schedule, but you can also incorporate an amazing book to go along with it.
Not only are you integrating your ELA into your STEM block but it has never been as important then now! Read the adorable book Mae Among the Stars and then allow the students to work on drafting their parachute!
