My students and I LOVED this resource! I didn’t do all of the activities, but the ones we did complete were amazing! I can’t wait to use the other ones next year! Thank you for a great resource.


My students had so much fun with this activity. They worked in pairs, and it was great to watch them and listen to them as they tried to figure out what to do. After they finished and we discussed the results, one student said, “That was fun and we were learning too.


I wanted a fun STEM activity for my distance learning students. We did the rainbow STEM activity. Took a little bit of time to get materials ready to hand out to students, which is to be expected. The students really enjoyed the activity and it was well worth it.
