PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This STEM challenge incorporates learning about history while challenge students to use their engineering skills! After reading a book about Christopher Columbus or the history of Columbus Day, students will be challenged to build a new, modern sailboat that can be powered by wind!

This product contains: the engineering design process model as an anchor chart, the lesson plan, teacher preparation and tip page, the challenge, and a six page student lab book to use throughout the STEM challenge.

You will need a few supplies in addition to this package. This includes: aluminum foil, plastic wrap, styrofoam cups, plastic straws, popsicle sticks, cork, index cards, and duct tape.

This is a fun and engaging way to start a discussion about Christopher Columbus and learn about the Columbus's ships, travel, and discoveries!
