Item description

The S.T.E.A.M. based activities in this product, which were inspired by the book Zane and the Hurricane, concentrate on the subjects of math, science, engineering, and the arts. Students will discover the relationship between the Fibonacci series and fractal spirals as well as their existence in nature. Students will also plot fractal spirals, write a myth, tall tale, or comic to describe a natural occurrence, and make an artistic cube with pictures of natural objects that follow the Fibonacci number sequence (hurricanes, flowers, pine cones, shells, etc.).

Additionally, students will have the opportunity to learn about artists who incorporate debris from natural disasters into their artwork and then use recycled or discarded materials to make their own masterpiece. Students will also conduct research on a chosen natural disaster’s effects and use art to communicate what they discover and its impact on people, the environment, and other living things.

Students will make connections between ideas like the golden ratio, fractal spirals, the Fibonacci number sequence, and Pi as they build a Pi skyline. They will design and build a mock levee, a hurricane-resistant building, and an anemometer to gauge wind speeds.
