Martin Luther King, Jr. STEM and STEAM Activities

Are your finding time to teach social studies?

Finding time for social studies was a struggle for me when I was in the classroom. As a teacher in a testing grade, I felt the pressure to spend the majority of my instructional minutes on math and language arts topics.

It doesn’t have to be this way! Fortunately, I found a way to integrate social studies with my math and language arts lessons through STEM!

Teach about Martin Luther King, Jr. this month with STEM activities that incorporate, reading, writing, math, and making!

Getting kids to focus during the winter months was always a struggle for me. The cold temperatures made it impossible to go outside, leaving kids with no way to burn off energy. Times like these require extremely engaging lessons to keep students focused and engaged.
