Spooky STEAM for Sachem Students

Waverly Avenue Elementary students in Cathy Juliano’s fourth-grade class participated in a Halloween-themed STEAM activity that challenged their creative design skills by calling for the construction of miniature haunted houses.

To begin the project, students drafted unique design ideas, keeping in mind the structural integrity of their buildings. Following the design process, students turned their ideas into reality utilizing popsicle sticks and glue. Throughout the construction process, students employed problem-solving techniques by incorporating the objects around them to act as braces, allowing the glue to set and the structures to strengthen. 

Following construction, students decorated their houses with paint and Halloween-themed cutouts.
