Product Description
Set the stage to engage with these eight engaging, fun, and ACADEMIC activities to incorporate metric and customary measurement into your instruction! It's just in time for the Winter Olympics too! STEM Activity included! I will be UPDATING this product to add photos and more detailed directions once I complete it in my own classroom!

This pack includes event signs, directions, and other props needed for this unit! However, you will need to purchase some every day STEM supplies! Cottonballs, gum, cardstock or cardboard, toilet paper rolls, marshmallows, popsicle sticks, and etc.

There are real world task cards using bobsled and cross country skiing maps!

Students will convert metric and customary measurements in this pack.

I would recommend these centers for grade 5-8, but they can be used in 4th grade with support.

NINE Events!

Cotton Ball Speed Skating
Students race a cotton ball around a speed skating track! Then measure.

Curling Course
Students compete in a curling contest (with brooms!) and measure how far their pucks go and how far they are from their targets!

Snowball Weigh Off
Students chew gum and measure the weight of different chewing time intervals.

Arctic Ocean Relay
Students line-up and relay different volume measurements to make a gallon (or 2) and liters and milliliters

Cross Country Skiing
Real World Task Cards to earn STEM Supplies for students' bobsleds!

Snowboarding Half Pipe
Students weigh pre-made "snowboards" (popsicle sticks with different weights or items hot glues onto the top). The students observe how the weight changes the path of the snowboard on the half pipe!

Real World Task Cards to earn STEM Supplies for students' bobsleds!

Bobsled Building - STEM Activity
Students build bobsleds and send them down a "bobsled track" using the air from a balloon!

Bobsled Track Building - STEM Activity
Students build a bobsled track and send a ping pong ball down it!
