Exploring the May STEAM Activity Calendar
You will be able to access the directions needed to explore each activity when you click on each of the May hyperlinks. After you get to each activity’s blog post, you will find a supply list and step-by-step activity directions.
Some of the activities offer free printables or recording sheets. You can use what they have for you to download or create your own versions of the activities if you like. Remember the idea was to inspire you to explore STEAM activities with your children. You know what they can handle and how they like to explore concepts and activities.
A variety of different types of STEAM activities have been included on the calendar. You may find that some are more appropriate for older children while others are great for children of all ages. I think that some of them could be done with a partner or parent. However, some of you may have children that want to complete them on their own.
