Own 9 more of Backpack Jack's STEM adventures! That's 9 complete lessons, 9 student activity books, and additional support materials and resources.
Searching for STEM lessons to do with my students, I found that there were lots of STEM "activities" but very few intro-to-close all inclusive lesson plans. That's where the idea for Backpack Jack was born. When my students see me pull out his backpack, they know that a fun-filled STEM adventure is headed their way.
Included in this Mega-Pack, you will find the following lessons:
--Gear in the Air (building a catapult)
--To the Top! (constructing a series of switchbacks)
--Hook, Line, and Sinker (building a fishing rod and hook)
--Brave in a Cave (making stalactites and stalagmites)
--Hanging Out (designing a swinging hammock)
--Let's Get Cooking (constructing a rotisserie)
--Swing Time! (designing and timing a pendulum)
--On Thin Ice (building a footbridge)
--Prepare for a Bear! (building a pulley)
Each lesson in the Backpack Jack series begins by introducing (or becoming reacquainted with) Jack, a fun-loving outdoor adventurer. Students will read Jack's challenge, and work collaboratively with their classmates to come up with a solution. To add to the challenge, the only materials students may use are the odds and ends in Jack's backpack! (All materials are readily available and free or very inexpensive.)
Each lesson contains:
--student materials list
--teacher prep and directions
--8-page student booklet, guiding students through the engineering process (4 full-sized pages, printed back-to-back, folded in half)
--1 follow-up/reflection page
