Connect to a Read Aloud: If I Built a House by Chris Van Dusen

This STEM Project is a companion activity to If I Built A House by Chris Van Dusen. The book explores all the elements needed for an amazing house!

Take students through the STEM Process!

Students design, build, and test their own house! After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't.

Using only paper, students learn 3D shapes and build their own blocks and other shapes to create their own house!

Integrate Writing!

As an extension to the STEM Challenge, students write about the parts of their house and how many 3D shapes they used.
