Building brick STEM activities
and rigorous text dependent questions that drive students back into close reading passages are a fun and exciting way to engage students every day of the school wile not losing any of your rigor or momentum! These fun no-prep building block STEM challenges have students thinking outside the box as they work to design, create, and improve. In addition, each STEM challenge activity links students to a high interest informational text
that gives them additional related information to what they are building! Students love reading the text, scouring for answers to thought-provoking text-dependent questions.
STEM activities and these building block challenges will have your students reaching new heights in their academic achievement. STEM Building Block Challenges comes with 10 carefully designed challenges, STEM planning sheets, challenge task cards, and questions on high interest articles from WONDEROPOLIS.
Each of the building brick challenges included provides a variety of questions on a different high-interest reading passage that can be found at Wonderopolis. You can access the passages in one of three ways.
Each printable has a QR code in the upper right hand corner. Kids can scan the code with a QR code reader on an Ipad or other electronic device and be sent directly to the article.
I have included for you the link for each of the articles. Many times I like to print the article out ahead of time and provide my students a paper copy.
Students can go to www.wonderopolis.com and type the name of the article into the search bar.
*** Due to copyright restrictions, I am not able to include the articles in this pack. Each of the articles can be accessed through one of the three methods listed above***
This year take your kids to new academic heights as they master these fun challenges!
IT'S GOING TO BE THE BEST YEAR YET!
