Enjoy 120 Lego STEAM/STEM challenge task cards! There are 120 challenges, each on their own card, in black and white for easy printing. Pick and choose the challenges you and your students use each day, based on the needs of your class!
In our classroom, I printed the cards on card stock and then laminated. I punched a hole in the cards and put them on a binder ring so kids can flip through and choose the card they would like to try with a tub of Legos we have in the classroom. In summer school, I placed one task card on a pencil box using tape and then put all materials needed inside that pencil case for students to use easily and independently.
Materials required: Legos, rubber bands, marbles, empty glue bottles, water, containers, pennies, marshmallows, matchbox cards, a fan.
Included are three mini journals for planning, reflecting, and challenges. There are lined pages, pages with lines and space to draw a picture, and pages with lines/a box for drawing a picture/directions. Simply choose the cover you like, choose the pages you'd like inside, and print double-sided, flip on the short side. Just be sure to use an even number of pages.
Some challenges include: building different 2D and 3D shapes, saving your friends from a deserted island by building a boat, designing a race track for a matchbox car, helping the mail carrier deliver his mail when his truck broke down, building a stronger fence to keep a wolf out of the pig pen, and designing different scenes to represent different seasons. There is something for everyone!
