Ms. Cricket’s class has been having lots of fun with upper and lowercase letters! One of our favorite books they’ve read recently was Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. In class, they incorporated a STEAM activity to go along with the story. The class worked in teams to build a three-dimensional Chicka Chicka Boom Boom tree using items they could find around the classroom such as painted wooden letters, popsicle sticks, and blocks. Each team tried to see how many letters their tree could hold before going BOOM!
This challenge inspired creativity, collaboration, communication, and encouraged critical thinking amongst the table teams! Inspired learning and fearless curiosity at its finest!
