If you’re like me, this is one of your favorite times of the year. I get so excited to watch football, take a trip to the pumpkin patch, enjoy some chili with cinnamon rolls (if you’re from the Midwest, you know), and see all the leaves change color. I’m a sucker for all those autumn traditions. But nothing tops going to the corn maze. . . .
For lots of us, the autumn season is the best time of year – cooler temps mean cozier indoor days with blankets and hot apple cider as well as fresh, crisp outdoor fun. Autumn also brings October – and Halloween! . . .
While most educators would agree STEM education is important, integrating it into an already full curriculum schedule can seem daunting. But teaching STEM doesn’t have to be complicated. As STEAM Powered Family notes, “The best STEM learning is hands-on and helps students learn to solve problems in fun, meaningful ways” (“Homeschool STEM”). And homeschooling, which typically lends itself to more open-ended learning than traditional classrooms, is a perfect vehicle for STEM activities. . . .
