What Are STEM Activities?
STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. STEM projects and activities are designed to engage children in all four areas simultaneously in order to promote learning, creativity, innovation, and problem-solving skills. There are many different ways to approach STEM learning through hands on activities.

Adding plastic zoo animals such as penguins and elephants adds a level of zoo dramatic play that kids can engage in by adding their favorite zoo animal to their zoo builds! My pre-k kids had a blast setting out their builds to create their own zoo while pretending to be zoo keepers!
