Monthly STEM project

Each month, as a part of their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) unit, Callum's class does some sort of hands-on project which we, as parents, are invited to see/help them work on.

Given the holidays, today's STEM project was to build a gingerbread house. :) But, they had specific criteria to consider (like it had to have a roof and be at least 6" tall, which is why Callum is measuring his in the first picture). There were also challenges which they could opt to complete, like building a tree, bush, fence, or mailbox.

We had a great time getting creative and building his house! All of the kids had such diverse and different ideas on how to go about completing their tasks - it was really cool to see actually! :)
