PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

100th Day of School Activity - Let's celebrate with a STEM challenge! The city is turning 100 years old and wants to put up a tall tower to celebrate. The tower must be 100 centimeters tall and it needs a banner at the top displaying the number "100"! The town needs your student engineers to design the tower using the available supplies while sticking to the budget. This STEM challenge is the perfect way to celebrate the 100th Day of school! It will encourage critical thinking while learning math skills. Several NGSS standards are met with this challenge.

Possible Plan of Implementation:
Prior Week: Send home the parent letter requesting supplies. Gather needed materials.
Day One – Introduce and discuss “The Problem” slide. Discuss the “Let’s Talk About It – Force and Motion” slide. Introduce the STEM Challenge.
Day Two – Introduce and discuss the budget options. Use the planning page to illustrate or write out the building idea.
Day Three – “Purchase” supplies for the build. Work on budget. Begin the building process.
Day Four – Work on and complete the structure.
Day Five – Test the structure. Complete the Self-Evaluation Page

This is certainly not the only way to use these materials. They are designed to be flexible and be used to best suit each classroom and teacher based on the ability of the learner, time constraints and teacher preference.

This challenge can easily be completed in one day, if materials are prepared in advance.
