February STEAM Projects

Our students have been busy this month with awesome STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) projects centered around two fun February occurrences:  The Winter Olympics and the 100th Day of School.  We thought you might like to do these projects at home with your favorite kids!

First, our school aged kids read the book “Tacky & the Winter Games” by Helen Lester.  Watch a read-along video HERE.  After reading the book, you and your child can have your very own Penguin Olympics!  Using items you can find around the house, like paper, clothespins, cups, and rubber bands, have your child design and build Winter Olympic structures, like a ski jump or a luge.  Then you can test them out by making a ping pong ball penguin.  Maybe you can even make your own, and you can race to see whose penguin wins the gold!


Our Preschool Site had a great time last week celebrating the 100th day of school.  Students were given kits containing 100 of a single type of material, and were challenged to build one item using all 100 pieces.  You can do the same thing at home!  You can use craft sticks, straws, linking cubes, legos, paper cups… Anything you can find 100 of, they can use to build.  This is a great way to help your little one to start using their critical thinking skills and let their imaginations run wild!

As always, get as creative as you want, and above all else, have lots of fun learning together!  Check out the rest of our STEAM Projects page for lots more activities that you can do at home together, and scroll through our website to see how CACC is Building Brighter Futures with the help of our amazing community!
