Iggy Peck, Architect | STEAM through Picture Story Books

I love using picture story books for teaching anything and everything! I love the way rich literature enables imagination and wonder, and empathy and connection in students. These are wonderful starting points for inquiry learning driven by curiosity and care.

Through a ‘STEAM through Picture Story Books’ series, I want to highlight some simple opportunities for using picture story books to provoke thinking around STEAM concepts.

I would love to hear any ideas you have that connect to the books I share.

Iggy Peck, Architect tells the story of a kid who just loves to build! He designs and makes many buildings and bridges using all sorts of creative and unusual materials until his teacher makes him stop… almost to her demise!
