20 STEM Activities Inspired by Kids Movies

20 STEM Activities Inspired by Kids Movies | Ict4champions | Scoop.it
I know a lot of families (including ours!) enjoy seeing some of the new kids movies that come to theaters.

And family movie nights are a perfect time to watch some of the classic kids flicks that we may have missed seeing at the thater during the busy school year.  Has your family seen any of the 25 Best Kids Books Made into Movies? 

Plus old Disney films are also a big hit with kids -- throw-back ones like Honey I Shrunk the Kids or The Apple Dumpling Gang are a few family faves.

Movies can be very inspirational for kids as they watch creative ideas coming to life on the big screen -- which makes it a great way to entice them to do a little science too.

So today we're sharing a list of some AWESOME kids movies along with science-related crafts & activities that will keep those minds buzzing -- just in time for back to school!

One fun way is through riddles that require inductive reasoning, critical thinking and hopefully some good collaboration around student ideas. The three brain teasers below created by TED-Ed have fun visuals and include an explanation at the end. All the videos also include lesson plan ideas to deepen the conversation and start discussion.
