Lynbrook kindergartners in Kim Fitzsimmons class recently participated in an engaging STEAM activity based on Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault’s book “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.” Students were challenged to build a three-dimensional tree that could hold the most alphabet letters. 

To fulfill each part of STEAM, the class was tasked with several different objectives. To tackle the science and engineering part of the activity, students discussed the different parts of a coconut tree and constructed a tree that could hold more than one alphabet letter. For the art and math component, the class drew a picture of their alphabet tree to record what they did and counted how many letters were on their tree. Students then recorded the amount of letters using a 100 chart as a reference for how to formulate the number.
