Winter STEM Activity: Build a Dog Sled Challenge
Students love completing this winter themed STEM challenge! Students learn about the history of dog sled racing by reading about the great serum race to Nome, Alaska in 1925.
After learning about the history of dog sled racing students design, build, and test a dog sled using only the materials provided. The dog sled will be tested based on two variables (speed and being able to carry the most cargo). This is a great engaging activity for students to work on during a novel study of Stone Fox!
This activity helps students develop critical thinking and engineering skills. Students plan, design, and execute their own ideas. After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't.
Aligns with NGSS(Next Gen Science Standards).
