STEM Activity at Buckhannon Academy


Mrs. Egress’ First Grade Classroom at Buckhannon Academy Elementary School participated in a STEM project.  STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.  The students read traditional and fractured fairytales and then completed projects based on those fairy tales.  Mrs. Egress’ class used the fairytale, Beauty and the Beast.  They had to create book stand for Beauty and the Beast.  They could only use 3 materials and their stand had to hold the book they chose for 10 minutes. The students had a great time with this project.
