What might be scarier than the first nine months of the year 2020? A year without Halloween!
At Hilltop Elementary, students didn’t need to worry about missing out on the fun as they were still able to celebrate Halloween with STEM challenges, art projects, math games, and delicious treats.
During a spooky spider themed week, students worked hard to complete a STEM challenge where they designed a spider’s web using only 10 pipe cleaners that could hold 10 bugs when dropped from 2 feet above. Students also engineered a way to help itsy bitsy climb a wall, created their own webs using a marble painting technique and glitter, and cooked up a spooky spider snack out of cookies, pretzels, and a little imagination.
As if that wasn’t enough to get in the Halloween spirit, students also celebrated Halloween with a monster themed week. Students used dice to practice math skills while building monsters, engineered monsters out of cardboard boxes and tubes, and created monster eyeball photo props using recycled materials.
