“Things may happen and often do to people as brainy and footsy as you.”
– Dr. Seuss, Oh The Places You’ll Go

The memorable Dr. Seuss books are a mainstay of childhood. These famous children’s books have fun rhymes, creative characters, and story lines that will make you laugh every time you read together.

Let’s expand on our children’s love of all things Seuss with some hands-on learning and experimentation!

STEM Activities + Dr. Seuss

If you’re familiar with STEM activities and projects, you probably know that STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. These hands-on projects, challenges, and experiments become even more meaningful and memorable when paired with a book.

Cross-curricular lessons encourage all kinds of kids to learn through play. Voracious readers will have the opportunity to extend the book into a real-life project. And you will inspire reluctant readers to enjoy a book as you connect reading with a cool, new challenge or experiment.

If you’re getting ready for Read Across America Week, these Dr. Seuss STEM activities will add a fun, hands-on element to your reading, math, and science lesson plans. Just in time for the spring slump! You’ll find that most of these activities require only a few low-cost materials that you probably have lying around the house.
