March is often a month schools celebrate reading-espescially since Dr. Suess has his birthday in March! We have been enjoying some Dr. Suess books in our class, and as part of that, Susan put the children in groups of 2 or 3, gave them a couple sizes of cups and paper, and gave them the instruction of making a “Cat in the Hat” hat. We encouraged them to work together to see how tall they could make the hat. It was very fun to see them work at trying to figure out how to do this. Soon, one student figured out that placing the paper on the big cup made it possible to place a smaller cup on top. Great cognitive practice, and a wonderful STEM activity!
