  • Winter STEM Activities for Secular Homeschoolers

    Anyone else feeling cabin fever? Between the post-holiday toy hangover and trying to get back into the homeschool groove after a two-week break, I’ve never been more ready to pull on my boots and escape into the wintry world beyond these walls. Although in my local neck of the woods we’re still snow-less, it’s likely that we’ll see some of the fluffy stuff in the next few weeks.

    There’s no need to abandon our homeschool routine just because we’re hankering for some outdoor time, though. Like so many families, our homeschooling has little to do with “home.” It’s simply learning wherever we happen to be. And if that happens to be outside with Jack Frost, then it’s time to find some educational ideas we can do in our mittens and boots.

    So, to celebrate all things snowy and bright, I’ve pulled together ten STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) activities that will put the WIN back in WINTER. You ready? Let’s dare to escape those walls that sometimes feel like they’re closing in on us, and get outside and play with science and math!


    1. What to Wear Weather Module (Elementary, Science)
    2. Snowball Science: Exploring Melting Rates (Elementary, Science)
    3. Pine Cone Math Station (Elementary, Math)
    4. The Science of Sledding (Middle School, Science/Engineering)
    5. How Much Water Is in Snow? (Middle School/High School, Science/Math)
    6. Raspberry Pi Solar Weather Station (High School, Science/Technology/Engineering)
    7. Birding STEM Challenge (Elementary/Middle School, Science/Engineering)
    8. Winter Tree Study (Elementary/Middle School/High School, Science)
    9. Igloo Building STEM Challenge (Elementary/Middle School/High School, Science/Math/Engineering)
    10. Winter Stargazing with Mobile Apps (Middle School/High School, Science/Technology)

    I found you by Googling “secular homeschool curriculum”. I was growing increasingly annoyed with all the Christian curriculum I kept finding.
