Holiday STEM Lessons at South Bay

Student in Kara Levy’s library class at South Bay Elementary School spent time exploring different holidays and religions. In a recent lesson, the students learned about Hanukkah on Pebble Go. They read, “There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Dreidel,” which featured many of the Hanukkah symbols and traditions from the Pebble Go research. They were then given a paper featuring pictures of all of those holiday symbols and worked to try to recreate them using their choice of either LEGOs, Keva blocks or a combination of both.

Students at South Bay Elementary School recently participated in a Thanksgiving STEM challenge during their classes with library media specialist Kara Levy. Students had five minutes to create a turkey using a cup of LEGO bricks. They were then given 30 KEVA blocks, a piece of scrap paper and a length of tape to create a hideout for the turkey. The hideout had to have an opening for a door and they had to engineer the structure so that the turkey was hidden if someone looked in the door.
