Assorted balloons (shapes and sizes)
Copy paper box lid (as an optional base)
Plastic Balloon Sticks or Bamboo skewers
Dowel rods (we got the skinny ones)
Tape and scissors
This packet contains all the information you need to make this a great engineering activity in your classroom! Lab sheets, student and teacher instructions, and challenge signs are all included! Using simple and cheap materials, you can engage your students in the engineering process!
This is one of many engineering challenges that I will be posting based on specific picture books, follow my store to receive notifications when new challenges are posted!
