Top 3 End of the Year STEM Units that Keep Students Engaged and Behavior Under Control

Teachers, Summer is coming!! This is always an exciting time of the year, which makes all those behavior skills your students work so hard to build all year go right out the window. 😅

No fear! Simple literacy-infused STEM units are my absolute favorite way to keep students learning and engaged during the last few weeks of school. This is one of the biggest sanity savers you can give yourself at the end of the year!!

Racecar Derby is a 3 week unit with activities for each week so students can create something fun while revisiting some physical science standards! Each week has its own racecar challenge: Fastest Car, Coolest Trick, and Distance Champ. This is always my favorite unit.

Scribble Robots is a 3 week STEM unit with a new challenge each week! Students stay engaged through informational text research and STEM planning to create their weekly robot challenge.
