Doodle-Trees and the Four Seasons
Recommended grades: K-2
Learn about: Seasons and changes in nature
Overview: Students will Doodle on four tree branches to create models of the four seasons. This is a fun STEM-focused educational activity that includes a short walk outside for students to collect branches. It also introduces students to the cycles of nature and gives them a strong visual representation of the changes in the trees and foliage throughout the seasons.
Earth’s Structure & Beyond!
Recommended grades: 3-5
Learn about: Different internal structures of planets
Overview: Students will research our solar system and Doodle cross-sectional 3D models of the planets. They will learn about the makeup of the different layers and compare and contrast the likenesses and differences between the planets. Students will then assemble the planets into a solar system display of their own.
Recommended grades: 6-8
Learn about: Research methods and design experimentation for a functional Wobblehead
Overview: This activity involves researching a historic figure and incorporating five of their characteristics into the design of a 3D wobblehead! Students will learn about exaggerating an individual’s most notable physical characteristics (similar to a caricature), and will be challenged to design a working Wobblehead by experimenting with Doodled springs, dowels, and more.
