Product Description
Earth Day STEM Activities (Wind-Powered Car Earth Day STEM Challenge)

Get this as part of a bundle: EARTH DAY STEM ACTIVITIES BUNDLE

This Wind-Powered Car STEM Challenge is perfect for this holiday! It’s a fun, creative, and engaging way to get your students designing and building during this time of year.

Challenge your students to design and build a car that runs on wind power out of a milk carton, wooden skewers, drinking straws, bottle caps, and tape.

You can also modify the task and include any other materials you would like students to use. You can do this individually or in groups (I prefer groups of 3-4). Give students the materials mentioned. You can show the students the images of the possible finished product I included or make the task open ended and let them come up with their own designs. Please take note that children will probably need help with making holes on the bottle caps.

Let students present and test their work on a flat surface during a windy day (the windier, the better). You can also try using an electric or portable fan. To make testing more fun, students can race their wind-powered cars! Give them a chance to make improvements after testing. Have students share their reflections afterwards.

Students can use the included vocabulary, and planning and reflection sheets to guide their learning. Please see Ideas for STE(A)M Links for discussion and extension activities that you can do.

Please see PREVIEW for a better look of ALL the included pages in this resource. Colored and blackline versions of sheets are included, as well as a page with alternate English spelling and term (Canadian/UK/Australian).

Thanks for your interest in one my Earth Day STEM challenges. Thanks for being a blessing!
