Ho, Ho, Hold it. Come on, don’t grab that worksheet; put a little STEM into your classroom.  It is easier than you might think.  There are so many ways to use a holiday theme to engage your students.  For instance: Is chocolate good for you? Is a heart just a geometric shape? Did veterans use any technology? What countries celebrate what holidays? Join Chris as he shares a few ways you can get your students to answer the questions as you bring the holidays and STEM into your classroom.
