wacky links!!

I love #stem and I love doing anything that is #stem related! I have found the most amazing tools that all teachers must have and include in their stem areas, supplies etc! 

Wackylinks are amazing! Have you ever heard of them?! They are flexible tubes with awesome connectors. The kids loved them. 


The connectors come in safari theme, rock and roll and winter! These connectors are easy to use and allow the kids to build such amazing structures!

We read the book The Very Hungry Caterpillar written by Eric Carle. The kids #stem challenge was to create a cocoon that their Caterpillar will fit into. No child received the same size Caterpillar! They loved it! They had to design their cocoon first and then using the wacky links create it! 

Check out some of their creations! 


This is just the first of many #stem activities that will involve Wacky Links!! If you don't have any then you must get these for your classroom! You won't be sorry and your kids will love being engineers!
