When it comes to STEM activities, we love building our activities around holidays that are coming up. With summer approaching, all the American holidays are just around the corner, including Memorial Day and the 4th of July. In anticipation of these events, I decided to put together a collection of patriotic STEM activities that kids will love doing during patriotic celebrations.
These STEM activities would make the perfect addition to any patriotic thematic unit. Most of the projects in this list are designed for kids between preschool age and upper elementary, with most of the STEM projects appealing to kids right around 5-7 years old.
