STEM Activities for the Classroom
We have good news for you! You are already doing STEM activities. STEM, the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math sounds like it's geared to the older grades but if you break it down you'll see the connections in the preschool and kindergarten classrooms. Science happens when you study plants and lifecycles; technology and engineering takes place every day in block play, and math happens at the snack table, the block corner, and during manipulative play. It's all about providing the right materials and being intentional in your teaching.
