STEM Activity Day
(Science, Technology, Engineering, Math)
 
Millboro Elementary School students and staff have found fun and creative ways to tie all content areas together to celebrate a popular author, Theodor Geisel.  Each day, the students heard a read aloud of a specific Dr. Seuss book and had a dress-up day that was associated with that book. On Thursday, Dr. Seuss’s birthday, LeAnn Stout, Millboro’s Title I reading teacher, went to each classroom to read The Cat in the Hat and delivered books and bookmarks for each child in grades Pre-K through 5th. Friday’s book, Oh, The Places You’ll Go, was celebrated in conjunction with dressing up as their favorite career and STEM stations. These stations focused on building skills related to science, technology, engineering, and math. These skills ready the students for future careers.
One station incorporated a book from Dr. Seuss. Bartholomew and the Oobleck is a 1949 book by Dr. Seuss. It follows the adventures of a young boy named Bartholomew, who must rescue his kingdom from a sticky substance called oobleck. The kids mixed water and cornstarch with a drop of food coloring to make oobleck of their own. It was a gooey mess and they loved it. The oobleck appeared to be a liquid but would take on being a solid when the students smacked it with their hand. Another center created animals using Play-doh and pipe cleaners to represent a skeletal system. Other animals were created out of only Play-doh to represent invertebrates, animals without a skeletal system. The students then stacked wooden blocks on their animals to see which one could hold the most. For the most part, the vertebrate animals were able to hold the most blocks because they contained a "skeletal system."  Many parents and community members volunteered their time to make this special event happen. Everyone at Millboro Elementary School is very thankful for their help!!
