STEM Connection

Who doesn't love toy stores?  Oh, yeah, sometimes parents don't!  This is a great opportunity to introduce the M part of STEM...that would be MATH.  Going into a toy store on a budget of $5 can be made into a math equation by stipulating that they have to get 2 things (or 3 things), but you can't go over $5.  Kids are notoriously indecisive in these situation and they'll likely have to run this math equation multiple times before they settle on their final selections.  The good news is - Delaware is a tax free state.  So $5 will actually get you $5 worth of toys.

Ideas, Notes, & Tips
