Integrating fairy tales and STEM challenges into your classroom
Once upon a time, fairy tales were for the very young. They were read at bedtime or watched in Disney movies. However, in a true to life “happily ever after” scenario, fairy tale literature is experiencing a revival these days. As educators, we understand the time crunch we face daily to “get it all in.” Why not teach skills simultaneously? In this webinar, we will focus on how to integrate fairy tales and STEM challenges. In this webinar you'll takeaway examples of tiered lessons, STEM challenge activities, and some how-to's for fairy tale STEM challenges in your classroom.
