April 22 is Earth day. It is a day/week that celebrates the Earth and think of how we can help the Earth. I posted 2 quick videos and 2 stem activities you could do to celebrate.

PBS Kids Earth day video

Earth day celebrations around the world video

Build a bird feeder stem activity

Build a wind powered car stem activity

Don’t forget to send me a picture of the stem activity you made. Wish we could be together to celebrate Earth day. Missing all of you.

Week of April 13

I wish we were able to do these activities together.

Watch the video. I know you may not have the materials to do the activities but remember even if you don’t do the activity yourself, go past the activity. They will show you what happened when they did it and usually there is a final part to the videos.

Kinder- Animals need shelter

First- Animal behavior

Second- Bird feeders

Third- animal survival

Forth- Why do volcanoes explode-

Fifth- Why do things explode

See an animal in your house!

Super fun to play with.

You can see an animal in your house if you Google search an animal name (on iPhone or android) and then press ‘View in 3D’. It opens your camera and soon will show you the animal moving in your room. You can walk around it and take a picture of it with people. Look for :
Emperor penguin
Angler fish
Brown bear
Shetland pony
