Hello there! The holidays are always a fun time to celebrate and bring in some different activities to liven up the classroom. I created this Candy Cane creations project as a way for my students to practice the basics of Engineering. (It meets one of our Next Generation Science Standards.)
Student Goal: I can build a useful tool using only candy canes and tape.
I have provided Teacher Directions, student planning and reflection pages, and an optional “send home” letter if you would rather have your students complete this project at home and bring it back to class.
I have also included an easy grading rubric for you to use!
I hope your class has fun with this, and I hope you have fun seeing all of their creations!
