Have you been wanting to add some STEM games to your Morning Tubs or Math Centers like I have?  Well, look no further because with the help of Oriental Trading Company, I am finally adding some amazing STEM games to my Math Centers and I am so excited!

Encourage out-of-the-box thinking with these Cool Crazy Connectors! This set comes with 145 colorful pieces that will keep your students’ imagination wild and crazy!  Students can connect them sideways or stack them up!  They are fun and so easy to clean up afterwards.
Working on learning shapes is so much fun with this Melissa and Doug Wood Block Set!  These sturdy and durable wood blocks are the perfect shape and size for little hands and will add tons of fun to learning about shapes and building with them!  May it be constructing simple structures to more elaborate buildings, students will be able to use their creativity and build onto their imagination!
Another fun way to get little minds spinning and engaged is with these Jumbo Pipe Connectors!  This set comes with 200 brightly colored pipes and a connecting board.  Students can build on their own or work with a partner to connect their pipes together!  Not only is it great for problem solving but it also encourages TEAMWORK!

Now, would any STEM Game roundup ever be completed without building blocks?!  I think not! 🙂  Need 1000 pieces of building blocks for your students’ imagination to go wild?  Look no further than this Bright Building Block Set!  These colored blocks come in the different sizes and are perfect for building shapes and structures!  Need other ways to use them?  How about grab a handful and have students sort them by shapes, sizes, and colors when learning about physical attributes?! Or have students build a structure that represents them or their family as an ice breaker at the beginning of the year or a U.S monument when you are studying U.S symbols?!  The possibilities are really endless!

5. Dive into Shapes Sea and Build Geometry Set

One of the hardest things for me when teaching 3-D Shapes is having students create their own.  Then came Dive into Shapes Sea and Build Geometry Set!  From creating 2-D shapes into 3-D shapes, this set makes it a breeze! The best part is that it comes with activity cards that show students which parts are needed and how to build the shapes!  Self-directed, easy-to-understand, and so engaging!

6. K’NEX Gears

What better way to learn about movement than with K’NEX Gears?!  While the pieces may look intimidating at first, they are so easy to use and the kit includes everything you need to help your students discover amazing ways to  use gears and show different patterns of movement! Up and down, back and forth, around and around, zigzag, fast, and slow!  This set also comes with task cards that will keep your students wanting more exploration and building time!

7. Imagination Magnets

Covering magnets won’t be complete with this Imagination Magnet Set!  Not only does this set come with colorful magnetic shapes and task cards, it also comes in a sturdy magnetic case that works as a board and can store the magnets for safe-keeping!  Students will be able to use their fine motor and problem solving skills to create different fun designs from the activity cards and discover the magic and fun of magnets!

8. Tumble Trax Marble Run

Have students design and engineer their own marble run with this amazing kit! With 14 magnetic foam pieces, 4 marbles, and 10 activity cards, your students will definitely get their problem solving skills running and have a blast collaborating and designing with each other!

Need some storage solution for your many STEM games?  I’ve got you covered too! These Clear Classroom Storage Tubs are perfect for storing your games and help make clean up easy!
