Christmas is a special time of year for both teachers and students! What a better way to celebrate the holiday season than with a festive STEM Activity?
What does the challenge consist of?
Your students will be presented with a dilemma: Ginny Gingerbread has to get to the 5th Annual Gingerbread Cookie Bake-Off with her ingredients, but the bridge that connects Gumdrop Avenue to Candy Crystal Lane has collapsed!
Issue supplies to your students and present the challenge to students (build a bridge using only the supplies provided)
Allow the students to collaborate and brainstorm, completing the included “planning guide” worksheet.
Set the timer and watch your kids Go! Students will reconstruct the broken bridge in an attempt to help Ginny Gingerbread make it to the cookie bake off competition!
Students will test the strength of their creation to determine if they were successful in the challenge!
