PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Challenges: Merry Christmas with STEM challenges! These three STEM activities will be the perfect addition to your December fun! Get ready to decorate your classroom with sleighs, cookie packages, and Christmas trees!

Please note: This package contains three challenges. Each may be purchased separately.

Students will follow the steps of the Engineering Design Process for each challenge. The packages contain step-by-step procedures for the teacher that are clearly marked with the Design Process steps. The included lab sheets for students are also marked. Students will plan independently and then with teammates to create the best solution to the design challenge.

Some specifics about each design challenge:
In Brown Bag Christmas Trees students will design and build a Christmas tree using a variety of materials that you will choose. Several different methods of choosing the materials are included. The tricky part of the challenge is that brown paper bag. It must be used in the tree design in some way. Just how creative can your students be in using such a simple paper product? Your kids will love making these little trees! You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes: Brown lunch bags (sacks), Pipe cleaners, Pom-poms, Construction paper, Craft sticks, Q-tips, Craft foam, White glue and glue sticks,
Straws, and Masking tape.

In Cookie Packages students will design and build a package to “mail” some cookies. They will have to build a container to hold the cookies and pack them well so there is no breakage. Since it is the Christmas season the package also needs to be decorated as a gift. At the end of the challenge, students will actually drop their packages to see if they have packed the cookies correctly and then they complete a scoring rubric to see how well they have followed the task rules. You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes: Cookies, Zip lock bags, Bubble wrap, Tissue paper, Masking tape,
Card stock, Red and green construction paper, Construction paper scraps, and
Glue sticks.

In Sleighs and Ramps students will design and build a sleigh that will slide down a ramp. It has to stay on the ramp and land without dumping its cargo- which just happens to be some Christmas “gifts”. Students will need to decorate the sleigh and it also must resemble a sleigh as much as possible. They will experiment with ramps at three heights and decide which one propels their sleigh the best. Their presentations will include showing how the sleigh travels on the ramp. You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes: Foam board, Objects to pack sleigh, Construction paper, Card stock, Straws, Craft Sticks, Aluminum foil, Pipe cleaners in holiday colors, Masking tape, and Glue sticks.

This set is a combination of three STEM Challenges. If you prefer they may be purchased separately:
STEM Challenge Christmas Cookie Packages
STEM Challenge Brown Bag Christmas Trees
STEM Challenge Sleighs and Ramps
