“Mom, can we go to the children’s museum?” My boys have been asking this question every day since we’ve had to stay at home. My heart breaks that they don’t get to do the fun things they are used to doing during “school breaks”. In an effort to keep things “normal”, I came up with the idea to create a discovery museum in our home.
I live by the KISS method (Keep It Simple Sweetie), so I decided to simplify our Once Upon a STEM challenges as a unique kind of “Children’s Discovery Science Museum”.
Each of these challenges comes with the following materials:
- Mini Story Book that gets your child thinking about the challenge
- Children’s Journal that includes areas to draw their design, write down what worked and what didn’t, math problems, extra activities, and a website that teaches them a little more on the topic
- Teacher’s (Parent’s) Guide that lays out the sequence of the project, materials needed, books you can read, and questions you can ask
- Vocabulary Cards that your child can use to learn important words related to the challenge
Purchase a couple of these STEM challenges (only $3.00 each!) and create a discovery museum with your children. Not all home-from-school instruction has to be done on technology right now. These projects will allow your kiddos to get hands-on with their learning and experience the discovery of children’s museums. Which challenge(s) will you choose to create a discovery museum in your home? 🙂
And… as an added bonus, use the special teacher/parent code STEMPARENT and receive 30% off your order.
Please send us pictures of you and your children working on your projects or the finished designs.
We’d love to see them!
