Read Across America Day
On this enchanting field trip, we celebrate the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss, bringing his timeless tales to life through engaging STEAM challenges. Inspired by his classic books, students engineer bouncing Thing 1 and Thing 2 characters, exploring the captivating science of force and motion. The adventure continues as they design a Calder-inspired mobile that balances objects in true Cat in the Hat style, creating a symphony of movement and imagination.
As we honor Read Across America Day, Challenge Island proudly extends the celebration beyond the classroom. Our dedicated book series enriches the literary experience, ensuring that the magic of storytelling and the wonders of STEAM education converge to create a truly unforgettable adventure.
