  • 6. Student Snowmen Projects Snowmen Design Video
  • 7. Student Snowmen Projects
  • 8. Student Snowmen Projects
  • 9. Student Snowmen Projects • Videolicious Video Example 1 Example 2
  • 10. Turning a Story into STEM • Look for science, math, or engineering embedded in the story. • Remember stories can be used with various grade levels. • Consider what types of digital technology would enhance the project.
  • 11. Example Project: The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! • The Fourth Little Pig’s House
  • 12. Example Project: Rosa Parks Videolicious Video:
