Free STEM related activities for K-12 Educators
Below you will find activities and free lesson plans that support classroom learning.
|K-5th grade||STEM||In this activity, students will make observations while conducting chromatography using simple household items. This activity can be adapted to become an experiment where students control for different variables or to become an art project in which students can create colorful chromatography flowers.|
|Salt Crystal Snowflake||K-12th grade||STEM||In this activity, students will create a paper snowflake that glimmers with salt crystals. The activity could be used as a discussion starter for lessons about solutions, crystallization, evaporation, or saturation.|
|Fizzy Melting Snowman||K-12th grade||STEM||Build an indoor snowman and see how it can still “melt” with the help of chemical reactions rather than a temperature increase. The activity could be used as a discussion starter for lesson on acids, bases, chemical reactions, acid/base reactions, and decomposition reactions.|
|Marshmallow Igloo||K-12th grade||STEM||Students will create an igloo made from just marshmallows and toothpicks. This engineering activity could be use for problem solving, special reasoning, or geometric concepts.|
