Today we are doing a S.T.E.M. activity. S.T.E.M. is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education. 

For this activity we will need
1 - building blocks
2 - plastic cups (we used 3oz size)
3 - and large craft sticks

S.T.E.M. activities are great to do with your kids because the skills and knowledge in each discipline are essential for student success.  But also because these fields are deeply intertwined in the real world and in how students learn most effectively.

We had three building challenges for our activity. 

Challenge #1 build a tower with only one block at the base
Challenge#2 build the tallest tower you can with a square shaped base
Challenge #3 build the strongest tower you can we tested the strength of our towers by seeing whose tower could hold the most books.

Building with blocks is great even at a young age, it develops motor skills and hand-eye coordination, spatial skills, a capacity for creative and divergent thinking,  social skills, and language skills.
