How do I set up the Penguins STEAM Day?
There are many different ways this day can be set up. Split kids into small groups and rotate through the activities over a one day period, or spread it out over two weeks (one day per week). You can also do one center/activity a day. Many of the activities are independent, so that the Penguin STEAM Day can be done with one teacher. The activities can also be done whole class if enough materials are prepared.
