Day 2 of third grade's Peep STEM activities! Today they worked hard to make Peep boats. They were given 3 boxes of Peeps and toothpicks. They were trying to see if they could build a working boat! They had some really great designs. Each group had something a little different, but they were all amazed by the sight of their Peep boat in the water! Definitely something I will do again and such a fun, enjoyable activity after all their hard work during MAP testing 🙂
