PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A STEM Peppermint Race Car

Have fun with a Christmas STEM activity in which students apply their knowledge of force, motion and inertia to solve a creative engineering problem. Students are challenged to design a prototype of a wind-powered car. A STEAM element has been added for decorating the car for the holidays. Using easily available materials, students in grades 4-6 will be guided through the engineering design process while working in collaborative teams. Teachers are provided with a complete packet that includes student worksheets, teacher notes, inquiry questions, reflection questions, job role cards, a rubric for assessment and a design brief poster. Collaborative team skills of problem solving, planning, perseverance, patience and presentation are stressed. A great activity that is easily integrated into the science and math curriculum during the holiday season.


***Note: This the same lesson as Air Stream Auto. It has been adapted to a Christmas theme. Please check if you already have this lesson before purchasing.
