I love the Dollar Tree® because they have such a wide variety of items for less! One of the first aisles I stop at while I’m shopping there is the school supplies aisle. I’ve found Teacher’s Planners, fun pencils/pens, colorful erasers, note cards and much more throughout our homeschooling journey at the Dollar Tree®. There are also a lot of resources for STEM activities that you can purchase at the Dollar Tree®.
Covering STEM in your homeschool provides countless ways for you to include hands-on learning activities for your kids to enjoy! Science experiments, Technology activities, Engineering and Mechanics projects are great opportunities for kids to learn outside of textbooks! They require kids to think on their own — outside of the box!
