I have a vast collection of Elementary STEM Projects and activities on my site from my many years of blogging. I love teaching with projects and hands-on activities. Here I have collected them all into one place for you to easily find them!
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math. Here I have divided up my posts into each of those categories, but many of the ideas overlap with multiple STEM learning categories. STEM activities for kids are learning activities that implement one or more of those educational categories to teach kids real world skills and ideas. These projects are fun, hands-on and engage their minds in many ways.
STEM Teaching Tools
There are so many amazing STEM teaching tools available these days. I want to highlight a few that I have been involved in.
A few years ago I helped co-author an amazing book called STEAM Kids that has turned into a great series. There are now also STEAM Kids Valentines Day, STEAM Kids Christmas and STEAM Kids Halloween books, with the STEAM Kids in the Kitchen version coming soon!
Last year I also wrote a Summer Science Camp e-book with 5 days of lesson plans.
I have a new book that integrate math and art: Math Art and Drawing Games for Kids. This one puts the A into STEM / STEAM!
I also have some posts with ideas and tools for teaching the STEM/ STEAM subjects in your classroom or home.

Now let’s get to some fun STEM project ideas! I have a lot of STEM projects on my site, so I have divided them up by the basic STEM categories. Many of them overlap in multiple categories, but I picked the main one for these pages. Hopefully this makes it easier for you to find what you need for your lessons!
