Thanksgiving STEM Roundup

This is a roundup of Turkey themed STEM activities and lesson ideas – both with and without technology – to use the week of Thanksgiving, the week after Thanksgiving, or anytime in November!

Does anyone else have school those few days before Thanksgiving? I always feel like they are the perfect time for a hands on or digital STEM project! First, I recommend stocking your library with the books The Great Turkey Race Peyton Picks the Perfect Pie and Turkey Trouble to inspire your students (affiliate links):

In no particular order, here are some of the engaging and STEM-centered Thanksgiving lesson activities that pair well with these books. Also, always be sure to check Thanksgiving activities for problematic imagery and inaccurate historical information; I don’t recommend a STEM challenge as the best place to approach the history of Thanksgiving. For that, I highly recommend this resource.

However, pairing STEM with turkeys is always a lot of fun! Scroll for ideas and click through for more details:
