Lovely Valentine’s STEM Activities for 4th Grade

Today, I’m celebrating the fourth grade with these Valentine’s STEM activities for 4th grade! It doesn’t get much more fun in the classroom than when kids are doing hands-on Valentines STEM activities. I love 4th graders. In 4th grade, kids are mostly independent, but they don’t have that tween and teen know-it-all spirit that can get a little tiring. 4th graders aren’t ready for true love, and they are a bit beyond classroom valentines, so there is a bit of a void on what to do with 4th graders on Valentine’s Day!

Need Valentines STEM activities for 4th grade? These Valentines Day STEM activities are jus the solution and fourth graders are sure to love them!

These Valentine’s Day STEM activities for 4th grade were collected with 4th graders in mind and are perfect to do in a classroom setting, STEM lab, or at home with 9-11 year olds.

The Perfect Valentine’s STEM Activities for 4th Grade

If you teach 4th grade, or just have a 4th grader at home, your kids will have a blast with these hands-on Valentine’ STEM activities for 4th grade.

These 4th grade Valentine STEM projects aren’t meant to take forever or cost an arm and a leg. For the most part, these activities can all be done in one sitting.

But, we do suggest taking a look at the instructions for each of your Valentine STEM activities a few days in advance in case you have to pick up a few things for the project.

Use conversation hearts as math manipulatives in the week leading up to Valentine’s Day. We wrote on our valentines day math with food-safe markers so that the kids could still eat them if they wanted to.

Nothing like an anatomically correct DIY Heart Model to gross out a 4th grader. And they can learn about the chambers of the heart at the same time while doing their Valentine’s STEM activities for 4th grade.

Take out the colors in markers and see how many colors are actually present inside a marker. This is a fascinating Heart Marker Chromatography experiment that most fourth-graders really love.

Most 4th graders could do the Valentine’s Day Lava Lamp Science Experiment over, and over, and over, and over. There is something restful and appealing about watching colored bubbles rise to the surface of a container!
