STEM HOME LEARNING GRID

Ideas for working at home –

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Home Learning

Early level
Science:  Earth Hour is on 28 March at 8:30pm when we try to turn off as many electrical appliances as possible.  Talk about things in your house that use electricity.  What could you switch off that you don’t need?

Floating and sinking – at bathtime or in the sink, investigate different objects around your house e.g. fruit and veg, to find out if they float or sink.  Make predictions before you test.  Test different materials e.g. foil, paper, card and see if you can make shapes that float and shapes that sink.

Food technology:  Put the foods into the correct food groups http://fss-eatwellguide.scot/

With an adult:  Play this online game and discuss https://www.foodstandards.gov.scot/education-resources/crazy-kitchen

Coding:  Use Scratch Junior to create an animation of your favourite story or make up your own story https://www.scratchjr.org/ – free app download on iPad or Android

Activities for beginners here:  https://www.scratchjr.org/teach/activities

Engineering STEM Challenge:  Using recycling and scrap materials, create a parachute for a small figure or lightweight toy.

Create a bridge from Lego, bricks or other materials such as recycling.  How much weight can it hold?  Try adding more rules such as the bridge must be as wide as a book or carry a certain weight such as 3 blocks.

Invention:  Invent and draw a robot that can do a job in your house.  Remember an invention has to be something new or something better than we already have.  You could build a model of your invention.
STEM in the news:  Watch Reach Out Reporter https://www.reachoutreporter.com/.  Choose your favourite news story.  Can you find out more about it and perform a news report at home?

 

First level
Science:  Earth Hour is on 28 March at 8:30pm when we try to turn off as many electrical appliances as possible.  Make a list of/draw everything in your house that uses electricity.  What could you switch off that you don’t need?  Why is it important to cut down the electricity we use?

Choose an animal you want to learn more about.  Find out as much as you can about the animal and create a poster or factbook to show your learning.

Food technology:  Put the foods into the correct food groups http://fss-eatwellguide.scot/

Design a healthy breakfast, snack, lunch and dinner using ingredients in your house.

Invention:  Invent and draw a robot to collect food from a local shop for someone who is staying at home.  Think about how the robot travels and how it is going to pick up and carry food.  Remember an invention has to be something new or something better than we already have.  You could build a model of your invention.
STEM in the news:  Watch Reach Out Reporter https://www.reachoutreporter.com/.  Choose your favourite news story.  Can you find out more about it?  Create your own STEM news update on this news story.  You could video it or perform it at home.
Second level
Science:  Earth Hour is on 28 March at 8:30pm when we try to turn off as many electrical appliances as possible.  Make a list of everything in your house that uses electricity.  What could you switch off that you don’t need?  What swaps could you make?  Why is it important to cut down the electricity we use?  Make a poster to advertise what people could do to cut down on using electricity.
