Today, American Girl in partnership with Scholastic launched Blast off to Discovery, a site filled with Luciana-inspired STEM and language arts activities for teachers and parents with kids in grades 3 to 5!
On the site, there are four lesson plans for STEM and ELA activities inspired by Luciana. They are fun and educational activities!
Lesson 1 is a science lesson, Building A Comet Model.
Lesson 2 is a math lesson, Jumping on Other Planets.
Lesson 3 is a language arts lesson, Robots and Space.
Lesson 4 is a engineering lesson, Launching a Rocket Model.
There is also a fun "Space IQ" game that can be played in teams, with friends or alone. In the game, Luciana quizzes you on space facts, and every correct answer gets you a robot part. The first one to build a complete robot dog wins!
There is also two at home activities: Design a Planet and Make A Galaxy Pinwheel.
A teacher, parent or just want to have fun learning about space? Go to scholastic.com/blastoff to have fun!
