## BrAziLiaN CaRnIvAl STEM Activity

The 6th grade teachers are currently planning a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) activity for the entire 6th grade on May 17, 18 and 19. The theme of our activity is Carnival because the students are currently studying the South American culture in Geography class and we want to be able to incorporate things the students have learned from every class. We will have 3 fun filled and educational days where we create our very own Central Carnival.

Our STEM Activity is going to be an activity where student design a Carnival parade float and get it to move on its own using magnets...
