Whether it means cozy sweaters, dreary days, pumpkin spice, or technicolor leaves, fall evokes strong feelings in all of us.
Once fall officially hits, the newness of school has worn off for both students and teachers.
Last week, I had a conversation with my daughter that went a little like this:
“Mom, what happened to school?”
I am puzzled.
“The first few weeks, my teachers were so nice, but now, they are getting mean!”
But, unlike my daughter’s teachers, you don’t have to fall into the “mean” trap once October rolls around.
Instead, engage your students with hands-on learning activities, like these fun STEM activities for fall.
These STEM activities for fall provide an entire month’s worth of fall STEM projects, perfect for October, September, and Thanksgiving!
Your students will never call you the mean teacher when you bring these educational fall activities to class.
