Our school has given our library a 21st century upgrade by incorporating a Make It Lab into its space. Each week we highlight activities using a different letter from STEAM. Students can come in during library or a recess to tinker. Once a week, students design and run an activity to present to another class during a lunch recess. Learning about polymers and making bouncy balls, creating brush bots, and paper toy engineering are just a few activities students led.

Using a resources like the Teaching Channel Boeing Modules can help with STEM at the elementary level.
You should really look at Pinterest: STEM and STEAM pins. There are many, many boards that address this issue. You can also look at the individual parts: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Many pins cut across the spectrum. If you are looking for specific activities and don't mind paying a small amount ($1 to $10), Teachers-Pay-Teachers (tpt.com) has several sellers that specialize in STEM at the 5th grade level.
