This books helps teach geometry vocabulary and problem solving skills. For grades 1-7. 1-3 grade, don’t read WHOLE book, just key parts. Good for trying out activities while interacting with the book or using the book as inspiration to try other activities and problem solving through geometry concepts. Spaghetti and Meatballs for All! The main character creates a seating chart that will fit all the guests. As guest arrive they keep combining tables which takes away seating. This happens and then it goes in reverse! Finally characters realize the main character was right all along. Students can use small manipulatives, such as tiles, to physically test it out.

STEM Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Teachers should incorporate STEM into class even if it is not yet part of the school’s curriculum. A great way to engage students is through STEM challenges. An idea of STEM in the classroom is having “Hour to Code” which is an hour of the day devoted to students practice coding activities. Another way to put STEM in the classroom, especially elementary age classrooms, is having a “Maker’s Space” which is a spot in the classroom that has random items and students get time to just create things with the given items. STEM challenge activity in class: Marshmallow Challenge We will be timed 18 minutes to use given items to build a free standing structure. Winning team has successful standing structure with marshmallow highest off the table. Materials: 1 yard of tape, 20 pasta strings, 1 marshmallow.
