Earth Day is a perfect time to teach learners to be stewards of the Earth. Using these two STEM stations, you can integrate environmental education as well as problem solving strategies as they try to create a pipeline that doesn't leak as well as help clean up an oil spill. These two activities can stand alone or work together to help you create the perfect Earth Day connections for you and your learners! Make any day Earth Day!
