STEAM Activities For Homeschoolers

Share with a friend!

Are you familiar with the acronym S.T.E.M.? What about S.T.E.A.M.? They can both be used interchangeably, but for the sake of this article, I will refer to it as STEAM. If you’re not sure how to use STEAM in your homeschool, this post is for you!

So what does S.T.E.A.M. mean anyway? It simply means Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. S.T.E.A.M. activities are designed to help children ask questions to build both their creative thinking and critical thinking skills. It’s also a great way for kids to get hands-on learning, is simple to implement, and often provides a nice change of pace to the homeschool routine. 

Let’s take a look at some of my favorite STEAM activities for homeschoolers.
