The Dot: Read Aloud STEM Kit


Free shipping on all orders!

This Read Aloud STEM Kit sparks creativity in STEM, design, and making by reading a book and then completing hands-on challenges and activities that culminate with the story and their characters.

In The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds, readers follow along as Vashti learns what creativity means to her. Through Vashti's journey, students explore their imaginations with 2-D and 3-D dot-based challenges. They then share stories, findings or what they learned verbally or in writing.

This kit was developed in collaboration with Carly and Adam – a parent and educator duo best known for their elementary read-aloud and STEM activities – these kits are sure to create connections between reading and engineering for children and parents alike.
